Much of the rolling terrain in Cuyler Hill State Forest passes through extensive tree planting by Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) crews from the 1930s. Varied terrain, seasonal streams, and diff erent forest types provide ample variety along this end-to-end trek. Changes in elevation mean a more strenuous trip than you’ll fi nd on the otherwise fl at trails in the region, and options for extending your hike off er an additional challenge. During the spring melt, a side trip to Chippewa Falls is recommended, but be aware that its path is overgrown and the falls run dry during the summer.
