Have been numerous times and it is great! Recently did a 5k and the trails were awesome. Also did a family photo shoot with our dog and it was a beautiful fall day. A little crowded and parking can sometimes be an issue.

It is always delightful to take a walk, see a show in the summer time, or just enjoy some peace and quiet. The wild flowers blooming in the summer are spectacular. The paved bike paths are great for rides and hikes, especially for families.

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.

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.
