The Hike

Come out for a short evening stroll on this Dane County Parks property that is part of the Table Bluff segment of the Ice Age Trail. The trail has some gentle, rolling hills and a looping portion of the trail goes through a section of woods. This 1.5-mile loop offers a grand view toward Blue Mounds (on a clear day).

Enjoy the more than 15 years of prairie restoration efforts. In spring, hikers will see shooting stars and other early prairie flowers; in summer, prairie flowers include an ever-changing explosion of compass plants, monarda, rudbeckia, coneflowers, coreopsis, milkweed, liatris and many more.

Event Details

The hike is about 1.5 miles round trip from the Pine Rd parking lot.
