Nordic trail loops offer many options for length and difficulty, up to 9.2 miles...all options are well marked and very scenic. Best enjoyed during off peak times as it is quite heavily used on weekends. These trails are NOT OPEN to hikers when snow covered.

A very pleasant surprise. I was not expecting the hills and wildlife. Enjoy my pics of the whitetail deer. Didn’t spook and I was able to have a nice relaxing moment in their presence. This is a great trail for clearing your mind and just enjoying the Midwest outdoors.

Oops. Ment to hit four stars. A very pretty hike in fall with lots of wildfoul and colorful foliage.

A nice short walk with kids. Nice but not overwhelming variety of scenery.

This is a great biking trail in the summer. Completely flat and mostly straight but the wildlife near the marshes make it a very pleasant hike. Saw many deer, sand hill crane, blue heron, Canadian geese, mallard ducks, and all within the first 2 miles of the trail. Great walking trail for families. It also crosses many roads, all about a mile apart. Makes it fun to pace, or get picked up if you don’t feel like back tracking.

Love this trail . Its a very peaceful place to go take a walk. I also found it to be a great place to snowshoe.

Quiet, serene, picturesque, abundant trails.

This is the Parnell tower trail and only about a 3 mile trail

Beautiful. Easy hike. Great views. A bit Icey and muddy this past week.

Beautiful trail with a bit more challenge than most of the trails in Wisconsin. Decent distance as well. This is a similar hike, in difficulty and terrain, to the Devil’s Lake to Parfrey’s Glen hikes, which is one of my favorites. The only downside is that many use the trail with their dogs and ignore the signage requiring pets be on-leash.

This is a great hike if you want something a little more challenging. If you go left when you start the trail, you will have an awesome incline to hike when you finish, totally worth it!

Beautiful views, nice trails, not busy, my dogs and I love it!

One of my favorite trails!!

No a bad trail but the lack of respect from pet owners in terrible. Dog feces everywhere.

perfect for a family hike with kids of all ages.

Great hike, views of Kickapoo River, spectacular observation point overlooking river valley.

very clean, dog friendly, and even when there's a ton of people you don't see most of them.

Excellent spot to bring kids! Enough variation in scenery and terrain to keep it interesting and trail distances great for the younger set.

Loved this trail! Beautiful scenic ride through heavily canopied trees and and also open areas overlooking farmland and beautiful countryside. It is a 12 mile trail one way, so it may be a bit much for beginners. If you’re looking to enjoy a day out on your bike this trail checks all the boxes!

This trail is flat and partially shaded. There are great views of the river with benches and picnic tables available. It's an easy trail to hike on with kids. Road biking on this trail would be difficult due to the gravel surface.

You can see what spectacular mansions were built in the days long ago. The path has some tricky parts but can still be fun. Stops in Lake Geneva, Williams Bay and Fontana along the way can add to the small town feel of long ago.

Pets are NOT ALLOWED! So before you waste your time driving there know that.

Very easy but it steep for the final 1000 feet or so. Might need snowshoes after a fresh, heavy snowfall.

A nice sized trail with uneven terrain. I didn't like that there wasn't an easily accessible map of the trail until the very end. Also, there are no markers along the trails so you don't actually know where you are going.

The woods were great. A muddy trip it was March though. We did encounter three off leash large dogs that charged us on our walk. So that was awful for myself and my leashed dogs. I would hike it again but because there were many people walking unleashed dogs on the trail I'll leave mine home next time.

went here a couple of weeks ago, love it ! Easy and fun

Some gorgeous views of prairie and streams. Beautiful during the winter months.

Short but fun.
