Trail shared by Rick M

This trail is a loop that takes you to the summit of Perrot Ridge and through a beautiful bluff ravine.

This trail is inside Perrot State Park so you'll need a Wisconsin Parks day or annual pass to access it.

Runner Notes

This trail can be very muddy in sections during the spring thaw or after heavy rain, so be prepared.

Description

This trail is mostly singletrack with a few bits of doubletrack. Most of the trail is a gentle climb with the exception being the approach to Perrot Ridge, which becomes a much higher grade.

Perrot Ridge provides beautiful views of the Mississippi River, goat prairies, and Brady's Bluff to the northwest. The southeast section of the loop follows a very scenic bluff ravine that also connects with the Riverview Trail.
