The trail itself is very challenging and wonderfully rustic. From an aesthetic point, it’s great! I had a hard time finding the loop and ended up turning around because the mosquitos were absolutely awful. I even sprayed myself on the trail but nothing worked. I would love to try and explore this trail some more, but the bugs might keep me away

I’m sorry jkghf

Great workout. Steep hills are challenging.

the white oak is a beautiful trail, a little wet after all the rain recently, but not so bad you can't hike it. mosquitos are pretty bad, but the hike it worth it. not too hard, but can be a work out, especially if you're keeping a good pace to keep the mosquitos off you. lol

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.

Scuppernog trail is one of my faves! so many different loops to choose from and multiple scenic overlook points. beautiful place!

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.

Enjoyed this on a hot day. Trail includes lots of shade and a few benches to rest. Nice that you can pick up and complete all or just portions of the trail.

hopefully it is 5 stars this is my first time on this trail

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.

A great place for birding and easy hiking or trail running. Avoid in the middle of the summer when the horseflies will swarm you.

Love this trail . Its a very peaceful place to go take a walk. I also found it to be a great place to snowshoe.

Fun/challenging hike for northern Illinois standards. Turned it into about a 5 mile trek by following a few rabbit trails. Backs up to a ski hill so there's some incline. If you live in northern Illinois and are looking for a spot to train for more strenuous hikes elsewhere this is a good spot for it

Unmarked trails but if you stick to the outside you will be fine on the loop. Recommend going to the top of the “mountain” great views!
Brought my pup and ran into a few other people with dogs. Very friendly.

Easy trail. Beautiful with the snow.

Go in clockwise direction. The other direction means you climb 203 ft. at the end and it’s steep.
No trails are marked so keep to the map on All Trails if you want to do the loop. Otherwise, enjoy all the rabbit trails! There are many. It was a great winter walk. Can’t wait to see it in the Spring.

This is definitely hard, the trails inside the forest are super overgrown. Don't know if they come through and trim it all at the end of summer. The elevation changes are awesome! Definitely happy I wore pants instead of shorts. I'm covered with little sticker pods! I'm short and majority of the paths I tried in the inside were overgrown almost taller than me. I don't think I found the "summit". The path on the outside had a lot of butterflies and was mowed. Also glad I started off with the inside trail. I would do this again and explore more when it's cooler than 90 degrees though

The hiking is a 1... much better hiking can be found elsewhere in the Madison area. But the newly completed Lower Yahara River bike path is awesome! Easy riding 1.5 miles thru the park, then a .9 mile section of boardwalk across Lake Waubesa ending at McDaniels Park in Macfarland. It just opened at the end of August 2017 so it's getting a lot of traffic right now.

Fairly easy in terms of skill level with a few decent inclines to mix it up. We ended the trail early because I couldn't handle my legs and arms getting scratched by the vegetation. Definitely not maintained in the summer. There are a lot of tall plants and grass that are growing over the narrow path so wear long clothing. My husband is 6'4 and hovered over most of the taller plants so his arms were fine. I'm 5'3 and was more susceptible to being scratched and whacked in the face by a few of the taller ones.

Lots of mosquitoes if you go in the summer especially now in august, stay away they are thick and brutal

A pair of short loops, one through forest and one through prairie. White Oak Nature Trail is wide two-track dirt trail that loops through the northern-most part of the park. Signs along the trail identify some Indian mounds, but they would be hard to find without the signs. Bugs are very bad on this loop in the summer. Prairie Trail is gravel and takes you around a nice, large tallgrass prairie. I prefer the Prairie Trail loop despite the fact that it would be very hot on a sunny day. Overall, a nice pair of loops.

Just so nice and well maintained!

Beautiful place to be in nature

Easy trail for sure but make sure you check for ticks when you are done. I give it four stars but next time you go it needs to have been a cold winter before.

Nice trail but too short.

This place is amazing. I can only imagine how it looks in the summer and I am sure the leaves are spectacular in the fall.

I would've given it 5 stars if the trails were marked. There are too many off-shoots from the main trail, a map would be helpful.

Fun easy trails, barely run into anyone.

Old settlers trail is dog friendly while the hemlock trail is not. Just a heads up!

Absolutely amazing in every aspect!!

No path markers so if you just want to see the top of gander "mountain", follow the map on here. Otherwise, it's a path through the Forrest that just gets you in circles.

Great moderate difficulty trail, will do it again!
