Ice Age Trail: Brooklyn Wildlife Segment Professional Review and Guide
"Get some up-close views of sandstone formations in the forest and take in vistas over the prairies on this rugged segment of the national trail. The path heads north .2 mile across open prairie and follows various trees along the way marked with yellow painted squares, which are useful in winter. The trail is maintained, but often the grass gets a little long. It is exposed here. Entering the woods, the trail begins sloping gently downhill. There are plenty of tree roots under the dead leaves, so mind your footing. Wild blackcaps and raspberries are abundant along the trail. In summer, you can find raspberries and their thorny shoots. The thorns, combined with the mosquitoes and ticks, make long pants a good idea in most weather."
