Unexpectedly tough trail, but I managed to get through it. I hiked halfway around the loop and stayed overnight at one of the developed campsites. The one I was looking for was not marked well, but with some exploring, I found it. The sites of these lakes weren't anything spectacular, but the hike was fun.

I ran my first half marathon race on a part of this trail; the experience was satisfying enough to generate a continuing interest in trail running for me.

I've ridden this trail in the past and you needed a guide to get through it. The tails were unmarked and VERY primitive.

Over the last few years there has been some great improvements. The loop is marked and has a design to it. Is it easy? Nope! Do you need skills? Yes! To ride at speed you'll need bike handling skills. If you're a beginner then jump off and walk the the section. Build your skills here and get some cardio on the punchy climbs.

Hike 10 miles from Verona to small town past Riley. Trail is well kept and easy to walk. Hope to do the whole trail this year. It was 45 deg F on the day I hiked

I love these trails. I go frequently as there are a few different trails that offer a number of difficulty levels. Some trails allow horseback riding as well as hiking and cross country skiing. I haven't seen any horses in the trails but have come across there manure piles so watch where you step. The trails are dog friendly. Caution during hunting season though as this fall I ran into hunters on the trails twice. They were actually squirrel hunting and some of the bullets were hitting trees a little too close for comfort. Also in the summer the tree growth can get pretty thick and mosquitoes can be unmanageable. Absolutely beautiful scenery though.

Pigeon Lake Trail is SOUTH of Pigeon Lake.
One would expect better results for the price paid.

This place has the largest waterfall in Wisconsin! We managed to go out there on a day that was rainy so the falls were gushing with water... It was so nice to see but of course, like many places in Wisconsin, it was all boardwalk and trail areas closer to the waterfall so you can't really get right up on it and feel the breeze coming off of the bottom of the water fall! Still gorgeous and we walked the trail to the bottom and around the stream area to take in all of it's beauty beofre heading back :)!

OMG, everything you could possibly imagine and more. Hike to the falls and swimming area, go rock climbing on the side of the cliff, wade around right at the bottom of the fall, walk arcoss a wooden bridge and get some beautiful pictures... I loved it. We stopped on our way through and I wished that we had much more time than the few hours that we spent there!
