This trek along the Blue Hills segment of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail rises and falls through birch and pine forest, crossing Devils Creek a few times, bringing you to a suggested turnaround point at some wetlands. Two creeks mark the beginning and end of this hike. Each is a gurgling gem, temping you to stay a while and contemplate its secrets. Walk north from the trailhead, and a subtle but beautiful scene unfolds. The path follows the crest of a small ridge, 80 feet above Devils Creek, winding among birches and pines before dropping to a bridged crossing.
