Cox Hollow Lake Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Breathtaking views atop steep ridges mark this circuit hike at Governor Dodge State Park north of Dodgeville, in the heart of the Driftless Area. The park’s sharp, steep bluffs with stone ledges overlooking Cox Hollow Lake are perfect examples of terrain untouched by the glaciers that shaped much of the rest of Wisconsin into rolling hills and prairie.

This hike takes you first along the rugged Pine Cliff Trail as it winds up some of those forested bluffs above the lake, then along the easier Lakeview Trail. About three-quarters through, the hike includes a picnic area and a concession stand open in the summer, which makes a nice spot for a break during a day spent at the park."
