Video of Glen Lake West Trail

A peaceful stroll through a lakeside wood awaits day hikers on the Glen Lake West Trail in western Wisconsin.

Glen Hills County Park in St. Croix County offers a plethora of trails amid 700 acres of maple, birch and oak hardwoods. To reach the park, from U.S. Hwy. 12 west of Wilson, Wis., take Wis. Hwy. 128 north. Turn right/east onto Day Use Road then go right/south onto Picnic Point Lane, which dead ends at a parking lot atop a vista.

The 0.4-mile round trip Glen Lake West Trail (so christened here for convenience’s sake) begins at the north end of the vista overlooking a swimming beach.

Here’s a video of Glan Lake taken from the beach near the Glen Lake West trailhead:
