Olin Park and Turville Point Conservation Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Venture out to Turville Point jutting into Lake Monona, take a tour through the woods and a bit of prairie, and have a picnic with a view of the Capitol.
From the trailhead, start straight for the woods to a grassy trail into oak savanna. Through the trees to the left is Lake Monona. Pick up a packed-dirt trail and come to a sign that reads Conservation Park-Turville Point. Pass through a gate and, at the first trail juncture, go left on a dirt footpath. Brush thickens into the savanna as you go. Just 200 feet along the trail, a spur trail breaks left from the main trail. Take it to the water’s edge where basswoods dangle their leaves into the lake. The trail is uneven here, with tree roots and strewn branches and twigs."
