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.

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.

Good hike. Lots of trails branching off the main ones. Worn paths with quite a few overgrown areas. As long as you stay on the path that looks the most worn and widest, you'll be able to complete it accurately. Took us just over an hour to do. We tracked this as just under 4 miles.

A great hike you can enjoy getting lost on. It’s easy to find your way back and it’s got some good scenery. Especially for a flat Wisconsin area, it’s a fun trek.

Definitely going to give a work out of some technical skills. The ride today at 5:30am was quiet and fast. It took some doing to access the trails due to the actual park gates being closed til 7am. There were numerous tree felled that block most of the trail crosses along Pike River. But with some effort, work your way up the ravine and it’s pretty good!

It's an amazing place with tons of different trails with different levels of difficulty. My favorite place to go by far.

Somewhat hard to follow the trail since there are so many forks, but I think all of the trails end up at the same place. It was beautiful! Definitely will go again

access to lakes swamps very woodsy

My husband and I enjoyed a walking through the woods. Can't wait to back and explore more.

If you're not following the river you're on the wrong trail! This is a beautiful hike past a golf course, along a river, and through the woods. Worth it to find the correct trail head.

This place is awesome!!! There are tons of trails through the trees with a lot of varied elevations, some steep hills and thin trails. I got through about 4 miles of trails in the woods. I skipped one sketchy looking bridge this time so I didn't go all the way around. Cell service for Verizon is weak @ 3G mostly so bring an extra charger if using gps. Definitely recommend having a gps app or a detailed map saved. Probably easy to get turned around in there. If my battery wasn't almost dead I would have stayed in there another 4 miles. Hiking shoes are a must. It's muddy and going down the steep dirt trails is slippery. I will be back soon, with snacks and extra chargers. Amazing and worth the hour drive from IL.

I don't think the highlighted trail actually exists. this is a park, and there are only paved paths. if you want to walk past some picnic benches and a baseball diamond, this is the place for you. maybe I'm blind and don't see the actual trail, who knows...

This trail is beautiful! Full of lots of different scenery. DO NOT try to follow this trail through the woods though!! There is way too much overgrowth and the trail leads to a dead end. Instead stick to the gravel, asphalt, or grassy areas. Giving this a 4 because the recommended trail is not walkable anymore, but otherwise loved it.

This was a fun trail to explore, but it was hard to navigate while walking my dog. I constantly had to stop and double check if I was on the right path with my GPS. A couple of times we got off-course, but overall I enjoyed the sights and so did my pup.

A phenomenal hike. Living in between two major cities (Chicago and Milwaukee), finding beautiful nature is a rarity. Petrifying Springs is a rarity. I hiked this park for the past two days, a few hours each, and am still in awe of its beauty. While the hike itself isn't too intense, it's definitely a bit of the challenge--especially with the slushy mud and trails with plants growing on them. Fortunately, it was a challenge that I found enjoyable. I highly recommend deviating from the paved trail and diving into the trails within the actual forest. I also highly recommend bug spray... there are an excruciating amount of bugs. The cons of this park is it's location. When immersed in the forest, you don't notice you're less than a mile within a golf course. But you are. That results in occasionally hearing loud chatter, the sounds of golf carts, or a golf ball getting struck. This, however, does not ruin the hiking experience and I would highly recommend this trail for an enjoyable hike.

TERRIBLE! Trail is not visibly marked! Trail should not be "easy" while the terrain maybe a bit easy it was incredibly difficult to find and stay on the trail without a constant map. The first half of Trail was nice but last half - NO THANKS!

Trail condition Sunday 6/18/17 a.m. - wet but rideable, some low spots are muddy. Definitely muddier and standing water on the UW trails. Slippery roots. Otherwise a nice ride!

There are really hard trails along the park stretch with steep parts and sticking toots: red and purple trails on the map, see the photo. Although, the trail along the river and the golf course is easy and enjoyable.

Super hard to find the trail head. Can get confusing with the paved trail vs. the off road version. Also it's really close to the road, so it's not very deep into nature. Path can get narrow at times but extremely wide at others. No maps/signs/ directions provided on how to stay on the trail. Not a difficult trail. Doesn't feel like hiking, more like wandering trying to figure out where your supposed to go.
