Lake Farm County Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike visits the shores of Lake Waubesa, one of the major lakes in the immediate Madison region. Since Lake Farm County Park borders the lake, it presents an opportunity to walk along the water’s edge for a fair distance. After reaching the shore, cruise both waterside and on elevated hills above the lake, where far-reaching views await. The hike then passes through a restored prairie and finally along wetlands and ponds that provide an additional aquatic experience.

Managed by Dane County, Lake Farm County Park, situated on the western shore of Lake Waubesa, covers 2,074 acres and presents multiple recreation opportunities in addition to hiking. Boating, fishing, camping, and bicycling are popular here, as is picnicking."
