UWGB Cofrin Arboretum Trail Hike

One of my favorite times of the year to hike is in the fall. The colors are gorgeous, the leaves rustle as you step on them, and the squirrels are busy finding nuts and burying them for the long winter to come.

This weekend we ventured to the UWGB campus near our home to hike a few miles on the Cofrin Memorial Arboretum Trail.

Today’s hike began just off of Bay Settlement Rd. and continued to Nicolet Rd. where we did a complete loop back to our vehicle. A small area of parking is available roadside near the soccer field.

Terrain on this trail is a mixture of paved sections, crushed gravel areas, and a long section of wood chips.

We passed a few ponds and a small stream along the trail.

Some areas were highly wooded and some were open to the blue skies above. Colors were amazing and the trail was quite peaceful with us only coming across a few people running or biking.

We did not track our mileage on todays hike but I would say the loop we hiked was about 4 miles, with numerous places to cut off and shorten if needed.

If you are in the UWGB area and are looking for a nice place to walk, bike, run or just escape the public for a while, I would highly recommend this trail.

****NOTE: No dogs are allowed on this trail.

Trail Page Addition

I receive so many questions in regards to hiking trails that I often share on Natural Red that I thought it may be easier to add a “trail page” to the mix.

I will continue to write posts regarding any trails we hike and what we find along the way, but you will find these same trails on the “trail page” for faster reference if ever you are looking for something you read here in the past. This page is a work in progress as we have hiked so many trails over the past few years that it has been very difficult to remember every last detail and mile. I will continue to work on posting them here and have plans to go back and hike some of them over again just to gather the information needed to write about, which personally I am looking forward to:-)

If ever you see a trail that you need more information on, please do not hesitate to contact me. If I know the information you are searching for I would be glad to share it with you. And if you are ever in search of a trail partner(s), depending on our personal plans, we or I would be very happy to hike along with you.

You will find the new “trail page” on the top tabs or you can also click here: Hiking Trails
