The One Loop Trail In Wisconsin That’s Perfect For A Short Day Hike, No Matter What Time Of Year

Some of the greatest hiking trails in Wisconsin are all about the journey. There are lots of looped hiking trails that take you back to where you started without retracing a single step – the destination is the same as the departure point. In Franklin, a short little loop takes hikers on a journey around a small lake that offers some expansive scenic views. Here’s what you need to know about the Mallard Lake Trail.

The trails have a few rules – bikes and pets are not allowed. The trails wind around a bit but they are not terribly difficult to follow and there are lots of little landmarks along the trail. Learn more about the park here. Once you’ve made your way around Mallard Lake, here’s a hike past some Wisconsin sea caves you may want to explore.
