Bristol Woods Hike Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"At Bristol Woods, hikers will enjoy the pleasantly rolling terrain covered in bottomland forest and oak woodland. Tree connoisseurs will enjoy the many oak specimens of considerable size, as well as a rare Native American trail-marker tree.

Starting the hike behind the Pringle Nature Center, you’ll immediately come upon a tree with a strange crescent-shaped trunk. This 200-year-old oak is one of the last American Indian trail-marker trees in Kenosha County."

Very nice, flora & fauna in abundance, just too many mosquitos & biting flys. Beach area is virtually deserted unless by buildings, so very quiet & relaxing.
