This loop hike takes in an impressive sandstone arch, or natural bridge, along a hilly, rugged path that also leads to an impressive scenic overlook. A variety of trees and plants line the path as it winds back to the parking area, where you pick up a second path that goes past an old cabin and smokehouse. You can enjoy a revamped trail system that not only leads to Wisconsin’s largest natural arch but also to an overlook and through the woods past an old farm building. Unlike most other areas under Wisconsin’s state park system, this place is primitive as far as amenities are concerned, leaving you to focus on the natural features.
