Rolling hills through pine forest and a view for miles from a scenic overlook are the highlights of this hike through some of southeastern Wisconsin’s finest post-glacier terrain. The short climbs over rolling terrain and a generally good trail surface make this trail popular with cross-country runners. The trail outlined here follows the Green Loop, the outermost and longest loop in this section of the forest. On the black-and-white maps from the park office, all trails appear the same, but the overlap can be clarified against the color-coded map boards at trail junctures. From the trailhead, the path turns left just inside the trees. A park access road continues straight from here. The first trail juncture is 200 feet farther along, and this is where the loop will return. Go right and follow a sandy lane strewn with pine needles.
