Steep trail going up and down West Bluff trail, but the views at the top are worth the climb. We took the trail that runs directly next to the lake on the way back to the south shore. Nice path with big boulders along the side. Made for a great hike.

Started at South Shore since that was the only parking available. Popular place on a gorgeous weekend. Took the West Bluff Trail. Very steep up and back down on both ends. Awesome overlooks. Made a loop by coming back along the west shore, very cool paved trail through the quartzite boulders.

Went on a mixture of trails for about an hour. The trails were decent and well groomed but the views and bugs were not so good.

Pleasant trail with wildflowers and many birds but nothing exciting. Road noises a fair portion of the route and a few houses. Path is wide and at no place single file. Rated moderate but most will find it easy. Kid-friendly.

lovely groomed walkways. Gorgeous fields of brush and flowers along the cliff

I love this trail in all seasons! It's both challenging and beautiful. This trail provides a look at the sea caves from above. It's worth the drive!

Great trail. Definitely a nice easy trail with some nice views of Lake Mendota and a beautiful prairie (Biocore). We went a little farther than just the Picnic Point loop. I don't think I got quite to Frautschi Point! Had a great time with my dog, hubby, sister, bro-in-law and their newborn!

Parts are steep but the overlooks are rewarding.
