Nice easy paved trail. Heavily used. Not well marked but lots of alternative paths. Great views of mansions, lake, marina and skyline.

Awesome!

Despite the bugs which are always a problem in the spring on all trails, I really enjoyed this trail. The river view and well kept trail made this an interesting hike. The elevation is a challenge, in my view not insurmountable.

easy trail, my 3 kids and I did it today. they are 5, 7 and 12. did the 5 mile trail in the rain, only saw 1 person jogging, it was very peaceful and for an outdoors man they view is awsome! the entire trail is through dense woods, bugs were no problem (assuming it was because of the rain). great trail, everything is marked very well

Another trail close to home where I can go spend some time to get away from work and busy home life. Beautiful lake views almost the entire way. Great for kids! I like to take my time and enjoy this one.

Close to home for me and one of my favorite spots. pick some wintergreen along the trail all year round!

I love this loop. I visit it probably a half dozen times a year. Great views, easy hiking, places to camp, accessible restrooms. Weekends are quite busy by the falls.

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.

A must see. I wouldn't mark this as "easy" because there is so much climbing involved. You can access the cliffs and shoreline from all parts of the trail both north and south of the parking lot. Head south and you connect with the interpretative trail at White Fish Dunes State Park and can go to the Nature Center. Pack a picnic and plan to spend some time at this little gem of a park!

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.

Wonderful easy trail.

Great trail! High rains resulted in spectacular raging falls. We ended up here because it’s the only trail in the park that allows dogs. Very pleased to have taken the less populated path.

Very disheartening to arrive here and discover that dogs are not allowed on this trail, though your description specifically states otherwise. Lesson learned; go to the source. The only trail in the park that is dog friendly is the Red Granite Falls Trail and that was spectacular and very unpopulated, so the day was not a total loss.

Fun trail! Good for families but a little challenging at times. Our kids are 4 and 6 and they had a blast. They especially liked the few spots where the trail went right up to the rock face and you could see the little cave areas.

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

Quiet and hilly grass loop trails that regularly intersect. I’m directionally challenged so needed to refer to the app regularly to stay on course. I went right after it rained and the mosquitoes were rampant.

Easy, gradual hike with great views. I will definitely stop back when I'm in the area again.

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.

Hartman Creek might be a zoo in the summer but you’ll be alone on the Ice Age Trail

Highly recommend if you’re into trail running because it offers good elevation gain! If you park on Hwy 54 you can run the Ice Age Trail to 2nd Ave then do the small loop section and head back, it’s 20 miles round trip. It’s brutal but fun!

Very fun little walk. Very buggy. But awesome plants and wildlife. Some carnivorous plants (pitcher plants) and butterflies. Good for kids but it’s not super well groomed.

Moderate loop with a couple of steep sections featuring a fantastic blufftop Mississippi River view. CCC-built shelter sits at vista. Part of the trail looks like it was built by the CCC. Bugs are an issue here, but they are not as bad as they are at some other parks in the region. Overall, Wisconsin is not really known for its hiking, but this is one of the best hikes in Wisconsin.

Trail is kept nice. Comfortable on the feet, soft ground.

Beautiful trail! A little bit of everything along the way. Like others, I wouldn't say this hike was difficult but be cautious of roots and rocks and pay attention to footing in some areas. Very enjoyable.

We took the Clark Lake spur to see pink lady slippers in mud-June. Gorgeous trails. We were all alone. Green trail return to Nature Center.

Awesome app! Would not be able to find best trailheads without it. It really got our family out into nature

I did this trail yesterday but cut in on the Upland Trail loop and stayed inside of hwy 113 it was about 10+ miles. I'm glad I started at park headquarters and did the bluffs first. it took me 4 hours or so. just an fyi parts of it are on park roads

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

I grew up in this area, and it was one of my favorite, easy and accessible trails to enjoy. They have a smaller paved circle right in front of the trails for small, short and wheel chair accessible trail. Then a beautiful hill you can go up to see a wonderful view. Lots of cool trails, and not that difficult. The Inside part of the building is cool too.
