Had a fun Saturday afternoon here with the family--two adults, 5-year-old and 3-year-old. We brought a picnic to eat at the lawn entrance, made a quick pit toilet stop and were on our way hiking. Busy, but not craaazy busy on a beautiful September day. It's fun to hike upstream and then climb over the big rocks at the end... More

This is a beautiful walk though the woods. Nice babbling brook the entire trail. It was a bit short, but very nice.

Nice hike along a little stream that leads to little waterfalls. Bring a picnic lunch and it's easy to spend a couple of hours amidst beautiful nature.

Love this place, nice nature walk. May be more difficult after rain as the stream fills and it is difficult to cross. Hike slowly and you can bird watch. No flush toilets but there are facilities.

Came semi-early (9AM) because others stated the small parking lot. Parking was jam packed when we left around 11 to noon? Definitely a hidden jewel. You won't notice if you're driving the speed limit on the road. You almost have to really keep an eye out for it. Was a great place!! Coming back for sure during fall foliage. Water... More

Great hike! Bring water and shoes you don't mind getting wet. The father up the trail you hike, the more challenging it becomes. Towards the actual waterfall, there was not much of a trail to follow. Just pick your way through rocks, boulders and 1"-3" deep stream. We saw young and old on the trail. FYI Even cars parked outside... More

A short hike back in a beautiful little Glen. No pets allowed and valid Wisconsin state park admission required. Located by Devil's Head Resort.

I have been here multiple times, and every time it takes my breath away. It helps to wear water shoes because the easier path may make your feet wet. With that being said, you can stay dry throughout the pathway. This is not a place for young children learning to walk. There are some rocks you need to climb. The... More

We went with our 3 boys (16, 14 & 9) and we all had a blast! The hike is longer than expected so bring water! The terrain is VERY rocky and wet so wear shoes that withstand both. We all loved the challenge of hiking stone to stone over the water in many places and crafting your own way to... More
