Pleasant section of the Ice Age Trail along the extent of the last big glacier that cut across Wisconsin. Includes the tallest point on the whole trail, Lookout Mountain, at 1,920 feet.

Decidedly decent bit of Midwestern hiking. Criss-crosses an ATV trail, but only saw an oncoming vehicle once. There are two campsites with fire pits but no latrines, on Chain and Bus lakes. Chain Lake's sites are prettier; the one on Bus Lake is also a drive-in. Saw grouse, ducks, frogs and mushrooms galore. The foliage the first weekend of October was absolutely gorgeous, and we were the only hikers on the trail. A very pleasant long walk in the woods.
