UW Arboretum Big Spring Hike Professional Review and Guide
"This hike explores the northern parcel of the University of Wisconsin Arboretum, near Lake Wingra. Leave the hiker trailhead, then explore some Indian effigy mounds. After that, take off in hilly woods, dropping to visit Big Spring and wetlands along the south shore of Lake Wingra. Next, head into the forest of Gallistel Woods and the Lost City Forest. Visit Teal Pond, a watery wetland with a boardwalk. Just for contrast, the final part of the hike bisects Longenecker Gardens, where trees are planted by species and type."
