      While the trail is mostly flat and winding hard-pack, you'll find more challenging climbs near the front (North end) of the park. The trail is very scenic with several streams, high vistas, and beautiful lakes. There is approximately 14 miles of trail if you make a complete loop. There are decent maps available from the DNR and the trail is well marked.
