Another one of Waukesha County’s fine parks, Muskego Park includes a two-acre swimming pond and a twenty-four-site campground. The trees this trail passes through are part of a sixty-acre hardwood preservation area populated primarily by old-growth white and red oaks but also maples, shagbark hickory, walnut, basswood, and, notably, Kentucky coffee tree and blue ash. The hardwood forest in Muskego Park is the subject of state scientific research, and the park’s wetlands give a nice balance to the hike. A sort of open-air museum—or graveyard of the agriculture days—is an interesting distraction along the trail.
