Great hike. Hiked in 3 miles and turned back to car. Trail is marked well and easy to navigate. Definitely signs of bear in the area, but did not have an encounter. I will most certainly visit this again when i have the time to do the whole route.

This park is my favorite.
There actually isn't a trail named Peninsula State Park, but 20 miles of trails within the park. The loops are Eagle Trail 2 mi, Sentinel 2 mi, Skyline 3 mi and White Cedar .5 mi. Sunset Trail is a 10 mile bike path that runners and hikers use. The other trails are connecting trails.

This hike is always well-trafficked (with the exception of the winter months) and has some of the best hiking views in Wisconsin. The climb up can be some serious cardio but things stay pretty flat once you’ve reached the top of the bluffs until you head back down

Devil’s Doorway is definitely one of the busiest spots along the Devil’s Lake trails but is a must-see if you’re visiting the park for the first time

It is a nice forest and a good selection of trails, but beware of the deer flies. Ended up running miles 2-4 on the 5 mile loop trail because of the attacking swarm of deer flies. Had about 30 around my head at one point. Went in mid June. I’m sure it is better in the fall.

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

Not impressed at all. Trail is not being maintained at all. Got down towards the bottom and couldn’t find the trail. Had to turn around because the mosquitoes were insane. I saw a turkey though which was cool.

Nice for running or biking. Very clear and straight path. Clusters of bugs because of stagnant water from creek so not great for walks/hiking.

We did not do the whole 10.7 miles (we had a cranky 4 year old with us who was not happy to ride on her dad's back), but we probably did about 2-3 miles of the loop total. What we did was really nice, with some great views of the lake. The trail was well-marked, too.

Great trail for biking. you need to plan on 1.5 hours going hard. Great workout.. will keep your heart rate in the red zone for 75% of the time.

Great trail system and awesome bay area views! Don't forget the bug spray, and make sure to download the park map from the DNR website because that has more of the nitty gritty trails in it.

I love to go hiking here with my dogs and kids.

Gorgeous views! Would recommend wearing boots. Even got to swim in the lake. The water is chilly but feels great after a hike on a summer day! Water seems clean, lake is sandy.

Great trails always go for biking or for a nice hike to enjoy the beautiful outdoors.

Great loop trail! Walk Wisconsin uses this for an annual marathon in June. And just for the record, you can walk your dog on 90% of it (just not through schemeckle reserve). Green circle trail.com publishes a nice paper map you can find around town too.

I love this trail. I start at the old depot in Oostburg and it's a short half mile ride south on the street to where the trail connects. I have ridden 13 miles south toward Port Washington so far and it's relatively flat with easy grades. There is about a half mile of road at Cedar Grove and one residential street crossing, and a downtown street crossing in Belgium. I would also note that Belgium has a bike repair station right on the trail with a decently equipped set of tools. This section of trail is very beautiful and I have seen a good bit of wildlife. I always do round trips when I ride unless the trail is a circle.

I have ridden this complete trail 4 or 5 times now from a couple of different starting points and it is quite beautiful and well maintained. The trail passes through a variety of terrain and trail types including on pavement through parks and a couple of streets and road crossings and there is plenty to see. I suggest checking the website before you leave because they keep it right up to date with anything that may affect the trail vondions or route. It's about a 25 mile loop depending on where you start and note that if you are on a road or pavement there will be directional arrows painted on the road to guide you, with an occasional sign. There are a couple of parks that have restroom facilities as you do the trail as well.

We started at the museum of art and did the memorial park loop and the headed north just to/past the beach area past tower drive and back for a 6 mi round trip loop. The oak leaf trail portions that we did were great for rollerblading, there was only one section near the memorial park loop that was not great for blading but not terrible. Would do it again and use different trail to get through memorial park for rollerblading.

trails are perfect for biking great views

It's not a destination trail... but if you are visiting elderly parents in the Oconomowoc area and need some exercise this has you covered. Take a backpack and bring home yarn from Delafield!
It made my legs burn a couple of times and it was interesting to find out exactly where it went.

Great place for hiking and the overlooks are fantastic. You can get some nice views on Porky Point, very close to the east parking lot. The grand views are on the south hill along Toad Road, Clarence, and South Point.

It is interesting how only 2 reviews can skew a rating just because someone ran into horse flies! This is a hidden gem with fantastic single track Trails for mountain biking and great cross-country skiing in the winter time. But please do not tell anyone else.

A well maintained, wide, flat, smooth trail for biking or walking. The description above is inaccurate, however. The trail is 52 miles long, flat and EASY (it's a former rail corridor, with never more than 3% grade.). See the State DNR's accurate description here: https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/parks/name/glacialdrumlin/

This would be a cool MTB trail if I had mine, you will stir up some deer on the walk and see plenty of birds along the way.

One of my favorites! My kids love it and love to have picnics on the benches! Would be a 5 if it was longer and the trial was wider. If there are bikes it gets crowded, and the gravel makes a bumpy ride in the bike trailer.

great place. took my youngest boy and our 2 Aussies on some of the trails last night after the dog show to let them unwind q bit. Trails ranged from wide packed trails to your basic deer trail through the woods. Had a great hike

The trail is well marked in the locations least needed. Lots of forks with no markings so determining your path is difficult. Highway noise is constant so don’t expect a quiet hike. Lots of up and down hills which makes this moderate. Cute creek towards the end. If I was a local I’d use this for running.
