Donald County Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Two good trout streams cross the prairie, and at the edges of the oak-forest hills, you find apple trees and wildflowers. The trail follows flowing water and then straddles a ridge with rock outcrops. The Donald/Woodburn family donated the original 105 acres of this park to Dane County.
The park has since grown to 480 acres and added a nice picnic area called Pop’s Knoll, where a shelter and a couple of fire pits rest amid oak savanna. Deer Creek and Fryes Feeder, two trout streams, run through the park, crossing prairie and farmland, and the wooded portion of the park climbs a nearby ridge. From the parking lot, go to a service gate in the corner to pick up the trail."
