Kettle Moraine State Forest: John Muir Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A challenging trail climbs up and down through oak and pine forests along the rubble deposits of the last glaciers. Don’t let the mountain bikers discourage you: This is a hiking trail as well. The abundance of ridges and kettles offers challenges to boots and wheels alike, and the extensive trail system leaves plenty of room for everyone. Watch for deer and turkey, as well as many songbirds. Walking into the trail system from the trailhead, take the first right. You must go against bike traffic for safety. This trail cuts 0.1 mile to the actual loop in the same way that the leftbound trail does in the opposite direction. Between the two trails is 0.1 mile of the trail. At the juncture, go right to stay in the proper trail direction, heading north. At 0.15 mile, the Red Trail comes from the left."
