Aztalan State Park Trails Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Set along the banks of the slow-moving Crawfish River, Aztalan is a lovely spot to enjoy a summer day, so it’s not really a surprise that people settled here over 1,000 years ago. A northern community in a much larger empire, this site is now both a state park and an active archaeological site.
The trails are wide, mowed paths following the river and taking a turn along Native American earth mounds. Mowing patterns may change from time to time to accommodate projects or ecological wear and tear, but the small size of the park and the clear view of the lay of the land are such that it doesn’t matter. Interpretive signs and an audio tour tell the story—what we know of it—of a people who were long gone even before Wisconsin’s current resident native cultures."
