This loop trail is very easy to hike. It is mostly flat with slight inclines and declines here and there. It primarily goes through a forest and passes many small lakes and ponds.
I just love it when there is fall color both above you in the sky and on the ground below. It's like you are surrounded in a sea of color!
The lake views and the mirror reflection in the water are just stunning.
This bridge was so low it was flooded with lake water so they added some beams right in the middle to walk on so your feet don't get wet.
I just love walking through a forest on a crisp cool day, don't you? The sounds of leaves crunching under your feet and being out in the fresh air is wonderful! So good for your spirit.
I did stumble upon a grass snake on the path and screamed because it startled me; but grass snakes are completely harmless.
I love how even the ferns below the trees turn a gorgeous yellow hue.
I found so many pretty red leaves that I took home and pressed between a book and they are now part of my interior fall decor!
The AllTrails website describes this trail as "Easy" but in the comments other hikers said "Moderate" would describe it better because of the inclines. As a 58 year old experienced female hiker who has hiked all sorts of trails all over the country in many different types of terrain and climates, I would definitely describe this trail as "Easy" as well. Yes, it is 4.5 miles long, but it is so level most of the time, I was not even out of breath once.
I hope you're all getting out and hiking this fall. Many of you have commented that it's still hot where you live. We are experiencing unusually cold temperatures here in Wisconsin with it being only in the thirties during the day and in the twenties at night. Despite the cold weather, we are still getting out and enjoying life! I recently discovered Under Armour Cold Gear and I can't say enough about their products! I'm sold for life and I will have to do a fashion post on them soon!
Next week I will be back with a another hiking trip in Devils Lake State Park!
Have A Great Day! Amy
