We hike here often. The trails are well maintained & there are plenty of miles to explore! The tower at the top has great views of the surrounding areas, and is especially wonderful in the fall to see all the leaves changing colors.

If you are inspired this is a go to in the local area for a wonderful view of the local landscape. Bring a camera and be ready to walk trails in addition to climbing the tower.

Make sure to stop by the observation tower while you are there. Once you get up to the top of the old wooden observation deck, the views of the city are awesome! This is a nice park to check out.

While not big league hikers, this is perfect....can go for a few hours or a short hour of 'get away' time.

Best hiking in the Kettle Moraine area. They make snow in the winter months for x country skiing. Trails are perfectly groomed and wide.

We hiked for a couple hours. Beautiful park and Forest. We scaled the historical weather tower. It's amazing how far you can in all directions. Highly recommend.

You can see all of lake country - delafield, oconomowoc, dousman, wales, pewaukee.... On a clear day you can see all the way to downtown Milwaukee. The best view is if the lakes in the area since there are at least 20.
