Lake Defiance Nature Trail

  The Red and Yellow trails are good too, but the Blue is such a delight that the thought of it gets me off the couch. The prairie! Luscious theme park sized soil undulations caused by the glacier! Interesting gravel. You sense the deer watching you. About an hour around if you are walking for fitness.  Avoid only when icy.  Plenty of parking.
