Glacial Park Trails Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This 3,410-acre preserve and its visitor center are a true treasure for nature lovers: Within the park are glacial formations, varied habitats, a canoe trail, and over 8 miles of trails. In a short distance this hike passes through bog, marsh, prairie, sedge meadow, and oak savanna and across the backs of a couple of glacial kames, offering nice views and great wildlife spotting along an interpretive trail.
The trail starts off crossing a prairie full of wildfl owers, but in only 0.1 mile arrives at the first trail juncture. The trail to the left is a 0.2 mile trek out to Wiedrich Barn and an alternate trailhead, but you go right on Deerpath Trail, entering oak savanna. The trail shows some cedar chips but is mostly packed dirt and grass."
