Best Hikes in Wisconsin

March 16, 2022

What are the most scenic hikes in Wisconsin?

Wisconsin is full of nature and some incredible hikes. However, not all hikes are made equally, and some are much more scenic than others. If you are looking for some of the most scenic hikes in Wisconsin, look no further as we have information on the most scenic nature and urban hikes in the state!

Devil’s Lake- Devil’s Lake is a hike in Devil’s Lake State Park that brings you up to the top of the bluffs overlooking Devil’s Lake. At over 500 feet tall, these bluffs give you quite the view of the lake and the surrounding forest. To get to the top of the bluffs, you will hike a portion of the Ice Age Trail, which has many different segments throughout the park.

Timm’s Hill-If the bluffs over Devil’s Lake aren’t high enough for you, head on over to Timm’s Hill, the highest point in the state of Wisconsin. At nearly 2,000 feet above see level (1,951 feet above sea level to be exact) this 10 mile trail up to the top of Timm’s Hill will bring you to the 45 foot tower located on top of the hill, which will give you an even better view of the scenic Wisconsin forest far beneath you.

Hank Aaron State Trail- If you are more into cities than nature, the Hank Aaron State Trail is a great urban hike that will give you scenic views of the city lakefront and art instead of scenic views of forests. This trail runs through Milwaukee, and is 12 miles of paths and streets that will bring you to the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Harley-Davidson Museum, the MLB Stadium where the Milwaukee Brewers play baseball, and lots of other iconic sites!
