What do you do on your way home from Door County, when you'd like to get in just one more hike? My husband had seen the sign for High Cliff State Park while returning from business in the Green Bay area. As it was on our way home, we decided to pick up some sandwiches, enjoy a picnic lunch, and take a hike along the escarpment trail overlooking Lake Winnebago. What a great decision! After enjoying lunch, we sadled up (leashed) our dogs and headed toward the Chief Red Bird trail. The trail is fairly well groomed, although, following the abundance of rain the previous week, there were plenty of muddy stretches to traverse around. A little mud never hurt anyone! We enjoyed the trail which is about 3+ miles, round trip. On the trail, you can get views of Lake Winnebago, the beautiful escarpments that line the trail, and you enjoy walking on nature's pavement (limestone). Although it was a quite humid day in the mid-70's, we encountered no bugs. There are several benches on which one can rest and enjoy views of Lake WInnebago. In addition to other hikers, visitors were enjoying biking on the trail. The park has a pavilion that one can rest, along with restrooms and picnic areas. There is an interesting statue of Chief Red Bird at the beginning of the Chief Red Bird trail, and it includes historical information. There are other parts of the park that we didn't explore, including the marina. Getting to the park includes an interesting (and unexpected) route through a residential area. Looking for a walk in the park? Head to High Cliff State Park for a wonderful outdoor experience!
