An educational and beautiful hike. Numerous springs, buildings and vista's. View of the marsh was incredible. A little muddy in spots, but it was expected as the hike is amongst natural springs lol.

Lots of the trails were too over grown to get through. But still a great path.

We were looking to do a shorter trail after we completed a longer in the area. I was pleasantly surprised on how unique and beautiful this trail was. Easy trail and a little muddy in some spots but gorgeous.

A bit washed out and muddy, but it IS a trail to see springs. Lots of interesting history though!

Great trail with lots of fun and unexpected things to see, not stroller friendly, was slightly over grown in spots, some of the planked areas we’re missing planks, very muddy, but overall a fantastic location, will definitely be back

Excellent trail. Beautiful wild flowers, clear streams, lots of fun for families and others to enjoy. A few board walk planks that go over muddy patches and tiny streams are slightly broken but this adds to the adventure!

Great short hike. The guided route in all trails app is not correct. Follow the black dotted trails for a small loop starting half way out.

HikingNo shade

A short and easy trail, this is perfect for families with little ones. It's located on the grounds of a former factory, so you'll come across some of the ruins, which include a length of railroad track, foundational walls, and some tunnels - many of which the locals have covered in some colorful graffiti. It's also the site of some native American springs, so be sure to get a good look at the clear water bubbling up from beneath the sand below. It's located close to the rest of the Scuppernong trails, so it's perfect to do as a warm up before the red, orange, or green loops. Have fun!

Loved all the little things that you could explore through this area. We went off trail quite a bit to explore. Muddy in some spots. Very narrow trails in many spots.

A nice little trail that was slightly muddy at the beginning but not terrible. It seemed like more than 39 feet of elevation, but I am not very good at judging that! All in all, a nice trail on a beautiful day.

This is a beautiful trail! I went with my toddler daughter and she was able to walk a lot of it herself. There was a ton of opportunities for a photographer like myself. Very scenic! Gorgeous landscapes and lots of bird watching. We will definitely be heading back once the greenery is more lush and might even dip our toes in the springs when it's a bit warmer.

It’s a wonderful trail with many short off shoots for exploring the many natural springs. It is marshy and muddy, typical environment for Wisconsin’s many natural wonders the spring! Have fun exploring this trail if your a fan of mudd runs!

this was a hike from kettle moraine low prairie State natural area to shelter 1. it is medium difficulty so it definitely worth the hike. it is about one and a half miles from our starting point.
