Hiking

One of the nicer segments of the IAT that I have done. No road hiking on this segment but you are just 50 feet from roads and houses in several stretches. Didn't detract from this hike. This is a fairly popular trail it seems- at least on a weekend -- so you will have company on your hike. It is short (3m) so we added on the Loew's Lake segment to the north which was also good.

Hiked south to north, point to point. Parking at south was on funk road which is Kilbourn off of CTH E. Mainly in the woods. Along a river much of the hike. Very nice.

Great Sunday morning hike. Arrived a little after 8:00 am and headed south on the trail for 2 miles before we headed back. This trail had some steeper parts which made it a little challenging and had beautiful scenery with the river and the forest. It was a little buggy out, so make sure to bring your bug spray with. Trail was nice and wide and easy to navigate.

First time hiking the ice age trail from the monarchs. The trail was well marked and maintained. The temperature was hot in the 85-90 and shade of the trees was welcoming. It started to get buggy as we hiked by the river, but nothing unexpected. Overall great experience, looking forward to another hike on a cooler day.

The trail was very shady which is perfect for hotter summer days. Very few people on the trail which is nice for some privacy in nature. Took us about 2.5 hours to walk to the end and then back and wasn’t very hard to complete at all.

Mostly wooded with a section that follows the river. Path is well made.

Hiked in early June on a Monday afternoon. Nice tree cover kept it cool on an 88 degree day. Saw 2 deer and a pileated woodpecker. Passed a total of 10 hikers in 2 hours. Trail was in good condition despite a recent fairly rainy period.

Spectacular hike! We picked it up at the intersection of HWY Q and HWY K. A beautiful forest leads you to the Oconomowoc River that follow for quite awhile. Even though it had rained the night before, the trail is so hard that it was barely muddy.

Hiked this trail in late May with my 6-year-old son, and we both loved it. Wide and well-marked trails with a decent variety of terrain. We stopped at the river and ponds a few times and saw a beaver swimming. Overall, very peaceful and scenic hike that I'd recommend for families, hikers or trail runners.

Hiked the Ice Age Monches Segment today starting at the South End. I didn't plan on hiking the full length, and wasn't sure which end was preferable to start from, but my GPS took me to the South End anyway, so there I was. Small parking lot - holds maybe six cars. The trail head is easy to find and leads you across the street to start the Monches segment; you could also go South to start the Merton segment. I hiked about 2.4 miles north; I liked the southern end of the section as it hiked along the river; however for the first mile or so you will hear plenty of road traffic. You also pass through private land/private homes to your right. There is a pretty river crossing, and right now there at least a half dozen wildflowers blooming which were beautiful. I saw/heard sandhill cranes and a group of what I think were turkey vultures. Lots of other birds along the trail as well. The river crossing also was a great place to stop and see frogs. North of the river the trail went through a few small hills, and the trail was much wider in this section. I stopped about a mile after the river crossing and turned around due to time constraints. I am not sure if there were other geographical features north of there. A lot of hikers rate this trail a 4 or even 5 star, but I found it quite average, with a little interest due to water crossings. I spent about two hours at a medium pace on my out and back.

I really enjoyed this trail! It’s fairly gradual with not too many ups and downs. Great trail for kids and dogs, or anyone else! Great for trail running as well. Hiked this trail in May and it was absolutely beautiful!

Being new to hiking, we’ve really enjoyed this trail and the extensive one around Holy Hill. The trail had variety with sections near the water. Enough hills to give you a bit of exercise. Moderately hiked with families of all ages and dogs. We will be back once the forest blooms. Conditions were good as we haven’t had a lot of rain. No bugs, limited animal sitings - frog, woodpeckers.

Started in Merton going north. Only made it a mile out with young kids but the trail was in great shape and the creek rapids were beautiful. Did not see any ticks as one user commented but we were fairly early morning when it was still chilly.

Awesome trails with easy access to Bugline trail. Trails are off of Lisbon park with a sand volleyball court, full playground, and several shelters. Trails are well marked and well-kept.
