We took our 7 year old grandson on this trail and he loved it. great .7 mile gentle up slope to the gorge. Then it gets a lot harder. You have to step on small rocks to cross the stream in several spots. Overall it is so worth it to see the natural beauty of this gorge! We will be going back in the fall.

Beautiful park. Went twice. First place I have rock climbed and loved it. Park has a wonderful lake that you can paddle on and see some rock formations.

This is by far the most interesting trail we have ever been on! From the abandoned factory to the natural springs to the cleverly placed Batman bat house it is a blast. 2.4 miles if you look at everything but it doesn't feel like it. We even saw a huge Blue Heron by the old hotel foundation from 1907. This trail is a must see!

This is a fun walk. Be warned though, this is not a groomed trail by any means. Do not wear shorts for this one. Very nice views and we saw a lot of butterflies, and birds including cranes.

Long hill climbs, as well as easy flat trails. There is something for everyone here. Not much to see as far as terrain when foliage is full. Pay trail.

Easy trail, short hike in to official end of trail but there's a trail next to the waterfall that continues. It's a nice little hike in with a gently flowing stream on the left. I never had the opportunity to see it with the deck in place, but it's still very nice and well worth the short trip from Devil's Lake S.P.

A beautiful hike but be prepared for navigating through some rough terrain. Lots of rocks, boulders and tree roots. All navigable and I saw plenty of young people scampering around like goats. If you start from the south you will hit a challenging climb but the rocks/boulders are nicely stacked and plenty of handholds. Beware it be slippery. Great vistas on the East branch. May take East Forest back or the RR tracks. Fun hike!
