"The Cedar Swamp Trail through the John D. Kuser Natural Area in High Point State Park offers you and your dog an opportunity to walk on a mountaintop without having to climb the mountain to get there. This is a great hike in winter—fun, fast, and easy. Your dog will enjoy trotting through the different habitats of this ancient lake scoured out of bedrock by the Wisconsin Glacier about twelve thousand years ago. A wide boardwalk traverses part of it, allowing an up-close look at life in a protected bog."
