    Truly breathtaking!

    LOVE the lower dells. Was not expecting such a magnificent spot at all. The canyon is massive, and seems surreal at first. I tried to hike the other section of the canyon (continuing south) but it was almost unpassable.

    What a cool spot!

    The Upper Dells are very simple to hike. Wet feet are the only problems you'll encounter, but there are so many cool little canyon systems within the area, lots to check out!

    Awesome Winter Adventure

    The waterfall was wonderful in the winter as well. Very very icy, but still a cool view. Maybe would recommend spikes for the stairs.

    Cool spot!

    Excellent waterfall, but there's actually an easier way to get to it! If you continue past the bridge, and through the Blackjack parking lot, turn left up a service road for less than a quarter-mile. There is a wayside on the left. Park there, and the falls are less than 50 yards away!

    Cool spot!

    Breathtaking views, easy to access, and definitely worth checking out. One of the largest falls in the area, can’t miss!

    Tons of fun!

    Rented a RZR and had a blast on this trail, lots of alternate routes as well for additional climbs obstacles to try, will definitely return sometime soon!

    Fun time at Buckhorn

    Our group enjoyed the hiking at Buckhorn. The trip was pleasant; not a lot of traffic on the trails, so we were able to enjoy the woods to ourselves. Nothing too challenging, we might go back with kids next time!

    Short Hike For Cool Falls

    Super short hike with a cool payout! Very busy in the middle of the day, maybe best to stop by early in the morning or closer towards the evening.

    Awesome time in the Apostle Islands!

    It was our first time out to the Apostle Islands. Stockton was a great experience. The hike to Brownstone quarry was great (make sure to check yourself for ticks afterwards) and Julian Bay was awesome. We didn't get a chance to hike to Trout Point, but talked with a group that went - very buggy and thick cover throughout the 12 miles stretch. The campsites along the peninsula are all easy to access (less than 0.5 mile hike). Would definitely recommend for beginner backpackers or avid campers. If we came again, we'd definitely bring kayaks.

    Awesome Hike And Great Falls!

    The trail loop is absolutely stunning. Awesome spots throughout the hike. There's a little backpacker campsite back in the northern end as well, hopefully will be staying there the next time I'm there!

    Awesome waterfall!

    A cool little spot. Easy access from the parking lot and the hike was pretty short. Definitely worth the stop

    An awesome trail within one of the largest parks in WI

    The Eagle Trail loop is a awesome hike within Peninsula State Park. Cool views, awesome bluffs, and a good stroll beside Lake Michigan. A can't miss spot if you're up in Door County!

    A cool spot in Door County

    This is one of the best trails in Peninsula State Park. Great views and excellent terrain. Fun in the fall too (when the mosquitoes aren't around)

    An awesome appetizer/dessert hike to Devil's Lake SP

    A short trip overall, Parfrey's Glen is still worth the stop. The hike back is fun and the scenery is something else. We went back in early spring before the greenery returned, I can't imagine how beautiful it'd be in the summer.

    Awesome spot right next to the city

    This is a very cool spot right next to the city. We visited it during the winter, the area looked very cool with snow and frozen streams. The trail leads right to the shoreline as well. The ice shoves looked awesome. But beware, everything was extremely icy, so take caution. Definitely going to return for a visit in the summer.

    Worth checking out

    One of the many lighthouses around Door County, but definitely worth a trip. There were also signs suggesting camping available in the summer, but I would suggest checking with the lighthouse staff to see if that is the case.

    Cool little spot

    Awesome spot along the lake, the coves near the path entrance are very cool and could potentially be cliff-jumped in the summer during higher water levels. Whitefish Dunes State Park is right next door for additional exploring as well

    A great view of the city in a great environment

    A short hike to some phenomenal views of the University area and the city. I hiked the area in February, and the weather was fantastic. Would definitely hit it up again

    Awesome day-hike spot.

    A great trail for day-hiking. Lots of stairs though, but the views make it worth it!

    Awesome spot for an afternoon hike

    I love checking out Bond Falls every time I'm in the area. You can actually climb right under the waterfalls too. Bring a swimsuit and water shoes and experience the rush for yourself!
