Interstate State Park, Wisconsin Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This Interstate State Park hike begins soon after you enter the park. At the sign for north campground, turn immediately left into one of the spaces in front of the pine trees. Interstate State Park is part of the National Ice Age Reserve—nine units stretching from Lake Michigan to the St. Croix Valley. It’s an area rich in geological evidence of the ice age 10,000 years ago that covered most of the upper Midwest in mile-thick ice. The Pothole Trail is the starting point for a network of loop hikes that form winding trails through huge boulder fields, lava flows, and glacial features.
Follow the trail west as it snakes through huge boulders and around scattered pine trees and stunted oaks on its way to the bluffs above the river. The trail follows very near the edge of the bluff, more than 50 feet above the river, across a wooden footbridge over a large potholes that’s been scoured down into the hard, rocky bluff."
