  • Although it was only 15°, the views of the snow and ice were fantastic and well worth braving the cold. The rock layering and formations makes one curious just how the glaciers moved

  • There is a modestly sized waterfall at the end of this hike that requires some boulder scrambling and/or rock hopping to cross the stream. On a hot day, being nestled between the cliffs cools you off....  more

  • A lovely hiking spot with a deep wooded feel and beautiful, serene waters. There's plenty of shade from the sun along the path as well as benches to rest on and it's easy enough terrain even if you have a bad knee like me. Great spot to take your partner or any loved one for a quick nature getaway. When we went it wasn't nearly as packed as Devil's Lake can get. Very quiet and it's tucked away. We spotted lots of butterflies, too! =)
  • I didn't actually get to the Glen. I hiked in on the ice age trail. Came from Devils lake. Beautiful section of the trail. Had to turn back due to time. Will visit the Glen next time. Awesome trail. Somewhat challenging, lots of rocks, tree roots, and elevation. Mostly under heavy canopy. I will definitely do this one again.
