After a great suggestion from a fellow reader I finally found time to get out and hike Terrell’s Island near Omro, WI.
This trailhead was fairly easy to find and offers ample parking and of course the most important part….a port a potty.
Upon arrival you will notice many signs of what is allowed and what is not allowed at this area. There are trail maps and information boxes with a lot of information nearby.
As you can see this trail is mark handicap accessible which is so wonderful. Not many long trails are so accommodating to persons with disabilities.
We decided to actually begin this trail backwards since the wind was strong and in the direction of blowing us backwards if we would have began at the #1 trail marker. Here is where we began our hike.
This trail is actually a breakwater path that leads in and around a large area of Lake Butte Des Morts, which means we were almost always surrounded by water.
There are ample opportunities to sit on provided benches and rest if needed.
Eventually, I would say about a mile or so, from the end of this trail you will leave the waters edge and enter into a marshy area.
At trail marker #4(remember we are going backwards) you will see in the distance another port a potty.
You will finish the trail at the parking lot you began at, almost 4 miles later.
We really enjoyed this hike. It’s long enough to offer a good walk, it’s on the water which is a plus for us, it’s well cared for by the club that owns it, and offers many different sights along the way. My advise to you would be, if it’s windy or cooler make sure you have a jacket. On the day we did this hike it was about 50 degrees and 15-20 mph winds which made it quite chilly.
I would highly recommend this hike to anyone.
