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!

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.

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.

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!

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

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!

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)

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.

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.

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.

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 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

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

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!
