I've walked and biked the length of this trail (in increments) several times, and I love it!
The only downside is that HWY 18/151 runs, at some spots, close to the trail. But the views, especially west of Mt. Horeb, are wonderful year around.

It’s timer on 9/22, loved this trail!

Nice day for a trail run. A nice mix of grassy and rocky trails, along with moderate elevation changes. My first time on this trail. The only downside is a trail fee of $8 for the day, but not a deal breaker. So, bring a bit of cash or check book. Enjoy!

This trail is now called the Chris Kegel Alpha Bike Trail. Nice hike.

A bit flat and monotonous with scenery mainly inside a forested part of the park. You pass by camp sites, and sometimes go up or down a slight hill.

My old stomping grounds. Get trails. Gentle and rolling hills.

Trail has great views of the lake and is mildly rustic. Benches are along the trail only in places that face the lake. Pets are prohibited which I didn't know until I arrived. Due to this, I won't be returning as by doggie is my hiking companion.

great well kept trail and the overlook shelter is a great place to watch the sunset over Minnnesota's hills. the history of the trail, knowing it was built by young men by hand during the great depression to help support their families make the stone staircases and shelter an engineering marvel

Definitely nice scenery and plenty of options in terms of trails to switch around on. I wouldn't consider the trails to be hard though, maybe intermediate. overall it's a nice place.

This Park is awesome. There is more Hiking than is displayed in the description. We hiked 5 miles comprised of Hiking and biking paths. The scenery is beautiful with, what appears to be, invasive plant management. Some trails are flat, some rolling and some more steep.

The Park offers a ton of amenities - hiking, biking, volleyball, fishing and even a place to get beer and brats.

They’re restoring the creek, which was nice to see.

*great* trail network but it is a little boring for hiking.

Very beautiful and peaceful

A scenic trail along the lakefront. It is fairly easy to lose the trail but given the size of the park, you won’t be lost for long.

Easy trail, can go down around the falls beautiful hike

Nice, occasionally steep lollipop loop exploring the north side of Wildcat Mountain. Oak forest dominates the ridgetop, but some pine plantings will be found on the lower slopes. Taylor Hollow Overlook on east side of loop was very overgrown. Combine this hike with a short, flat hike through ridgetop overlook area on the west side to get the best views. Good leaf-peeping in early October. Overall, best hike at Wildcat Mountain.

A very nice nature walk. Nothing strenuous. More like a walk in the woods than a hike.

Beautiful hike through the forest. Some parts can be challenging, otherwise well worth hiking.

Nice well marked trails. Took my dog and he wore out before we completed the full trail. Fairly difficult with hills but a nice challenging hike.

Very nice trail. Quite a bit of diversity in scenery for being in the northwoods. Would recommend doing this hike.

It would have been a nice trail but it was not maintained very well. There were quite a few trees over the trail.

We love biking on this trail!

A great trail to train. Nothing boring here. Elevation and scenery changes will keep your attention.

An easy hike with beautiful views and an old little chapel! Not exactly moderate by any means. Who rates the difficulty anyway? Been around the state parks and Ice Age segments and many difficulty grades are off, at least to my family of hikers and trail runners.

This trail has nice views. However it is posted that dogs aren’t allowed. We brought dogs with the intention of walking the trail with them

Great hike with the dogs. Hot in the open fields and really buggy in the woods, but it was awesome. Don't be turned away by difficulty rating, it's not hard.

Very crowded on weekends, the trail head is very close to the popular beach. This trail is also not suitable for children with uneven terrain with many drop offs. I recommend Potholes Trail (still tough) to get up to see Balanced Rock and Devil's Doorway.

A great walking trail. Lots of different scenery.

Nice park that takes you by the zoo- an alpaca was out to say hello too. Took me 6 years to find out Oshkosh has a sandy beach. Will definitely return- hopefully the mosquitoes will be gone!

Beautiful! Very well maintained trails with informative signs. There is a wheel chair accessible portion that gives you great views of the falls or you can continue on a loop that allows views of al the Falls. Be aware there are a lot of steps.

Love Nashotah Park - great for running trails and well-maintained. However, bugs can be atrocious in the summer.
