Quick and scenic, Cave Point is free and has some of the best views of shallow cliffs along Lake Michigan. Constant wave action causes fractures and dissolution textures in this Silurian Dolomite. In winter, the cliffs have many icicles.

The challenge for this trail is more about time than anything else. It's an easy, level walk - a well-maintained surface. I'm tempted to mark it as wheelchair accessible. But it isn't paved. Took my Yorkie mix puppy Nellie Bly one mile out and back. That's all I wanted to push her little legs at 6 months. But she's fit and ready and, as long as I keep her out of the burdock on the trailside, the trail begs us to go farther - and this little dog and I will comply!

Large parking lot - easy trails for the family

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

March 2018 Hike. Not much color because of the season, but a very nice hike. Lots to see with some history, lots of springs, and relatively flat easy hike.

Great loop trail within the city. Ducks, geese, lots of re-winged blackbirds. Southern section is nice as well.

You can hear the traffic from the road 3/4 of the trail .. also it’s a very small space and you’re just walking in circles

The parking lot was just about empty when I pulled in on one of the first nice days of late winter/early spring. I was excited about that, but it should have been my first clue. I loaded up a trail map, knowing other reviews had said the trails are poorly marked. “How bad could it be?” I thought. Well I wasn’t expecting everything to be covered in a thick layer of melting snow and ice (there was almost no snow left anywhere else in town). I looked down at my gym shoes but figured I’d give it a try. I walk up to one trailhead and see “no walking on trails!” Well that’s a first. Went up to another and it says “wrong way.” Okay... clearly a trail system for xc skis. No worries - it’s a big park and I’m sure I’ll find something. Finally came to a point where I found the original trail I was trying to find (at its halfway point, where it crosses). Beautiful trail but covered in a slippery, icy mess; nearly fell off the hill a few times. Made it down thinking the rest of the trail would be okay, but it led me back to that original point of “no walking.” I tried circumnavigating the rest of the front part of the park but could not find anything worth walking on. Part of the problem was the icy/melting conditions that I was not expecting, but a huge factor was the very confusing layout. I’d try again on a dry, warm day, but today I’m disappointed.

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.

We love using the Turkey Vulture Trail, Homestead Loop, and Yellow Trail. Beautiful in the winter and it’s a fun and scenic work out. Love Rib Mountain!

Really enjoy night hiking this trail. It’s vet peaceful. Brown loop is perfect for taking my 7 year old daughter.

Great trail for winter hike. Tied this trail together with a trail system not shown on AllTrails for a 10 mile hike. Trails are groomed for X-Country skiing but you can go off trail as well. Good elevation changes to make it a true moderate trail system. Trail head is easy to find and there are trail maps at every sub-trail intersection.

Went for winter hike here last week...it was a great day to be outside and recommend this trail.

Nice trail through the forest. Amazing colors in fall.

One of the better hikes in park. Mesquitos were horrible, but notwithstanding, a great scenic hike for the area.

Went in August. This place has wonderful trails and we took a beautiful hike around the lake. i would recommend it to anyone.

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.

spectacular views and the stairs to the lake (and back!) provide a good workout

Hilly and gorgeous in the fall

Lush woods, gorgeous the entire way. The stream and falls were awesome. We hiked it on a 20 degree winter day with fresh snow. Stunning! Not a hard hike.

Excellent trail between the Point Beach State Forest Lodge and Neshota Beach Park in Two Rivers. Great for hiking, biking, and cross country skiing. Forested setting and sand dunes along Lake Michigan. Parts of this trail are collocated with the Ice Age Trail thru Point Beach. A nice pizzeria and bar (Port Sandy Bay) lies along the mid-point of the trail. Connects to several side trails near the Point Beach camp grounds.

Nice trails; not marked terribly well. I ended up on the frisbee golf course, which was sub-optimal. If it wasn’t so close to my house I wouldn’t go back, but it’s good enough to revisit, when considering the proximity.

Beautiful views, but moderate difficulty at most.

Be aware that a portion of the trail map (by the green arrow) is not accurate. The actual trail runs further east. See the photo of the map with the heat overlay I posted.

Great variety in trials, some lowlands some highlands. Interesting scenery that opens up to large areas of water . Very quite. A great place to walk a dog that loves nature. BUT BEWARE OF THE TICKS

This trail can only be accessed by starting on the Sentinel Ridge Trail or the Old Wagon Road Trail. This trail is seldom used and offers a reprieve from the more crowded areas of the park. The lower elevation portion along the Wisconsin River can get buggy during the spring and summer months. Unless you want a good uphill workout, I recommend hiking the trail from west-to-east, beginning by going down the switchbacks off of the Sentinel Ridge Trail. The incline coming up on the eastern end of the trail (where it connects to the Old Wagon Road Trail) is much more gradual.

Quick stroll & another high point crossed off the list!

Loved the lookout tower!

We just finished the Wingra Woods portion of the trail with the kids. Pretty easy walking, great scenery, and we even saw some turkeys. I could see the mosquitoes being bad in the summer, but it’s perfect in the fall.

Green Loops is nice and well maintained. Arrived at around 9am on a Saturday and didn't encounter anyone on the trail until we arrived at the beginning of the observation loop. I'd say it is a nice relaxing loop with a couple of easy hills to keep the blood pumping. although the green loop is lightly traffic you never got the feeling you were out on your own since portions of it are lined with camp grounds.

Great mostly wooded trail. Many switchbacks with some rather steep areas. I would rate if difficult for a Wisconsin trail. i did the green loop. Orange loop bypasses the most difficult part of the green loop. nice overlook about halfway through the trail.
