Kettle Moraine State Forest—Southern Unit: Scuppernong Springs Nature Trail Professional Review and Guide

"In woods full of springs and patches of scenic wetland follow a self-guided nature trail with a booklet that has more to say about the human history of this spot. Scuppernong means “sweet-scented land” in the native Ho-Chunk language. Native Americans occupied the site no doubt for its abundant freshwater. A booklet, available at the trailhead, guides you past numbered posts along the trail and narrates a bit of cultural history.

Just inside the woods from the trailhead, the trail forks; take the path to the right. Much of the trail is shaded, but with the abundance of springs and low spots, you can expect some mud to contend with. At 0.2 mile you encounter rail-road ties, part of an old railroad bed that extends about 300 feet along the trail."
