From Hwy 45 North take the Paradise Drive exit to the trailhead parking lot where the segment starts. There are a few spur trails to local parks and to the Girl Scout camp off the segment so watch the signs.
There were also volunteers cutting roots out of the trail, I always like having tripping hazards removed.
Southern Wisconsin is experiencing a very dry summer which is great because it hasn't been humid, but the flowers don't like it so much. West Bend has gotten more rain than we have but it is still pretty dry.
The pretty little Shinleaf blossoms under the shady canopy seemed to be doing pretty well!
Where the trail crosses Ridge Run County Park there was a nice wetland area, and the park itself seemed really nice for family picnics and play areas.
Of course a road connect sign just sends me back to my car.
Mostly the trail is pretty flat but there are a few uphill esker climbs to keep it interesting.
And plenty of squirrel, birds, chipmunks, rabbits and deer to keep you company!
