Beautiful State Forest located in Eastern Wisconsin. Historic Ice Age trail should also be explored while here. Great to visit anytime of year but especially beautiful during the fall months when you can enjoy the dynamic colors as the leaves change. Lots of different things to see and do. Many different trails for hiking. A couple of great scenic drives in the area as well. Several great educational opportunities as well. Don't leave without a stop off at the Ice Age Museum.
My wife and I have been visiting this area for fall hikes since the early 80's. Our kids have grown up enjoying these hikes and yesterday, our 16 month old grandson accompanied us for the first time riding in his stroller. The tradition continues! This area has many scenic hiking trails and is a real gem. The southern unit is almost as nice.
