This is the signature hike at one of the great state parks in America. You start at the top of the bluff and hike down, along the lake, below the bluffs, before climbing back up. In only about 2 miles you go through several small eco-systems, shifting from hardwoods to cedars, sun to shade, dry to wet.. The hike includes... More

This trail is rated 'difficult' and in two words I'll sum up why. "Tree roots". There's some elevation change which is moderate, and some rock climbing and stair climbing, which is also moderate, but the tree roots border on obnoxious. If you can get past that, there's some really cool limestone outcrops, and some breathtaking cliffs that you will skirt... More

The trail skirts along the shore at the base of the limestone cliffs that jut out of the northwestern part of the peninsula. Very beautiful.

The scenery may be great during the winter, but during our summer hike, you could barely see the water because the tree were so thick. The only reason the trail is rated difficult is that you are walking on rocks and tree roots the entire time. You need to watch where you are stepping all the time. The best part... More

This is a great hike with some diverse topography. I consider it moderate but have taken 4 year olds and up who have enjoyed the entire walk. Warning: if you freak about rock walls over your head that could crumble down on you, you will have to buck up or turn around and go back the way you came. You... More

absolutely scenic! it is marked as difficult as it is rocky and there are roots on the ground can potentially trip you over. but just with some extra attention, you can totally do it and it definitely worth it.

The trail is well marked and at time pretty rocky. I don't think I would go after a rain to many rocks would become slippery. We went in dry conditions and had a great time. Trees provided great shade.

The Eagle Trail is 2 miles long, with trail heads at the parking lots just before and just after the Eagle Tower (which is closed). The scenery is spectacular...amazing views of Green Bay, Ephraim and the Strawberry Islands, as well as rock bluffs and caves. There are several elevation changes but nothing that most people can't handle. (Hiking the trail... More

This trail is marked "Difficult" for a reason-- but don't let that deter you! Simply be prepared with appropriately sturdy shoes, perhaps some water, and a dose of patience. You'll enjoy the trail's rolling portions and the extremely rocky portions, the woodlands and the cliffs along the lake. In the summertime, be sure to prepare for bugs!

This trail was not as good as we expected. The trail was rated as difficult which it really was not other than all the roots and rocks that were in the trailbed. If you do this trail, I would recommend starting at the Eagle tower and going counter-clockwise until you get past the views of the caves and the lake.... More
