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.
