Explore a portion of this 781-acre Dane County park. The refuge is centered on three trout streams—Deer Creek, Fryes Feeder, and Mount Vernon Creek—and the hills that surround them. On this hike you will head downstream along meadow-lined Deer Creek, passing a small cave before climbing into wooded hills. Enter open terrain again at Larson Pond. After completing your first loop, hike upstream along Deer Creek in an ideal mix of field, forest, and stream. Circle around an outcrop, then ascend tree-covered Hitchcock Ridge, where you pass atop a bluff and alongside rock cathedrals that present winter views.
