Trail 5, Trail 4, nature preserve... great area of brown county. Connect to ogle lake loop to extend hike. Valley between ridges especially pretty with streams and lots of diverse plants and flowers. Ecology transitions as the stream delta meets the lake and you can find turtles sitting on logs in the sun and snakes swimming in the lake.

Times of heavy rains can be a slight problem on trail. Low lying areas near Ogle Lake could be flooded. There are also several small creeks you have. to cross. The trail ends when it meets trail#5, continue on 5 to trail #5 to it's trailhead. Nice views of Ogle Lake and woods. Steep climb to trailhead#5.

Loved this little loop. Started at Racoon Ridge Campground, headed to Ogle lake via Trail 4 and did a quick loop around it then headed up trail 9. There were some steep parts getting up to the Trail 9 loop but it was well-worth it. Super quiet up there. Only ran into one other (very friendly) person. We let the dogs run around off leash up there. There was a great picnic stop up there too.

This would also be a great trail running loop
