Nice, level trail for biking, horseback riding or just walking. The views of Watson Lake and the Dells are breathtaking. Lovely place to spend some time outdoors and it's not too strenuous.

Very is trail for bikers and hikers. Very peaceful and romantic landscape. A lot of birds of different kinds so it is good to take binoculars with you. Don't forget water and sunblock because there is not much shade on the way.

Great running trail, well groomed and mostly flat. Great walking trail, interesting wildlife and one particularly spectacular view about 1.5 miles from trailhead. Great hiking trail if take advantage of the many more challenging sidetrails. Great casual biking trail for mountain bikes and hybrids.
