Easy trail. Great scenery in the fall. Great view of the lake and a smaller pond.

Walked the trail just as snow was melting. quite muddy but still a good path to navigate. Lots of trails branching off this one. Although there really is no crossing the creek where the map shows. Might have been at one point but not now.Plenty of other trails throughout the park. Even some across HWY A to the north of Pets has some trails. If you don't want to get into the woods there is a nice paved path that runs through the park.

Good to be back out on the trail. A little mud, deep snow, hard packed snow and some bare spots.

Very icy this time of year (practically all the trails are). My dogs enjoyed the 2.6mile hike.

Wear snow gear not very cleared snow on stairs packed down easier to climb back up then sliding on your way down but not to bad great view very deep snow on most of other part of path not made by heaven traffic to see the punch bowl itself

The Phipps Fire Lane is a forest road, open to all motorized traffic. There are many trails nearby for non-motorized recreation.

Best view ❤️

Not too crowded for such a beautiful late winter day. Snowshoes was great. Several hikers with dogs, mostly on-leash, but a couple law-breakers.

So beautiful! Snowshoeing trails are excellent!

Modified blue and green Loop. 22 degrees Fahrenheit at start. Great trek in snow. Passed no other hikers. Boot ice traction hardware a must! The early spring sun, when it appeared, felt great. Trail is now closed to bikers.

Nicely groomed trail. A pretty easy, flat trail around Hartman Lake.

A short, simple loop but very pretty. I have run this trail often (See "Pinewood Deerby" segment on Strava.) Beach to the east, playground on the north trailhead (if you bring the kids), lined pine trees in the southwest corner, and a hotbed for deer in the northeast corner. I see 2+ deer here 75% I run here, and they usually let you get within 40 feet of them before they calmly walk away. My favorite part of the the Kohler Andrea Trails.

Absolutely amazing, beautiful, serene. Don’t discount coming out here on a quiet and snowy day in the winter!

I always love hiking here. Today was total slush for the entire route. Wow... great workout in slush! Love the winter wildlife. The white tail deer are stunning.

Ice Age Trail is well blazed. Oak trees are the order of the day. Backpacking shelters are roomy, some with concrete floors, others sand/gravel. Some have I bolts for hammocks, some don’t. Ample dead/down wood for fires...some spigots along the way, lakes, streams to treat water...Weekdays and winter if you want solitude...

Winter hike. Thought trail would be packed down, but it wasn’t. Decided to not use snowshoes and tromped thru 6-10 inches of snow. Trail markings led us off trail and luckily we had all Trails app to find our way in. Doubtful I would tackle that terrain again

Nice trail in the snow.

Not as easy as the rating would lead you to believe. Lots of small but steep elevation changes. Rock steps are very slippery in winter - I was using my hands for stability at points.

Devil's staircase portion of the hike is great...but more than half of the segment is in the Riverside Park, and is substantially less interesting.

Best place to start is the Arbor Ridge segment, and end at the steps leading down to the Riverside Park.

Ice Age Trail Cnty ZZ to Cnty C chose to jump on Scuppernong Green Loop about half way back to car. 29 degrees Fahrenheit. Grey day. Kettles, moraines, pine and hardwood forests and some farmland. Great January hike!

January hike. 30 dogs. Nice trail with numerous decent inclines. 5.5 miles taking the observation loop. . Heavily imbedded with rocks, so be aware. If you want a fairly short trail that you can do in < 2 hours and still get some physical exercise, this will do it for you. Once your hike is completed, go to Kunkleheads and have a burger. They are great!

I thought this was a great trail with fun and steep hills. If you want a longer hike, I suggest to go left first and zigzag your way around the trails. It can be quick, but I spent about 1.5 hours out here and loved it in the snow! I'd say this trail is more of a moderate in terms of hiking difficulty.

so pretty. swimmimg for summer, fall is perfect. always a go to with all 3 kids.

my favorite trail around Antioch. winter hiking is perfect. start of summer bugs get pretty bad. bring bug spray. fall is gorgeous. trails are over grown, but makes it an adventure. dogs LOVE it too.
