Pope Farm Conservancy Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This former farm in a suburban belt west of Madison is a place where houses are filling in the remaining fields. Yet at the same time, it is a living museum of Wisconsin’s geologic history, with restored prairie, oak savanna, and native agriculture. There’s a large cornfield sprawled over a pair of recessional moraines, which were created by retreating glaciers thousands of years ago.

Numerous interpretive signs fill in the details of natural history and Native American settlement. The wide open fields that surround the paths through the park make you feel like you’re in the middle of wide open country, and there are some nice views of surrounding hills and the distant skyline, including the dome of the Wisconsin State Capitol."
