About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Anderson Farm County Park is the newest park within the Dane County Park System and was established in 2014. It is located in the Town of Oregon, a nearby suburb approximately 20 minutes away from to Madison, WI. It features a variety of landscapes within its 310 acres including woodlands, agricultural land and prairie. There is a 1 mile hiking trail located in the northern end of the park that wanders through the Arthur Sholts Memorial woods. You can also hike along the field roads that run alongside the agricultural fields.

The terrain across the park is gentle with little elevation making it a great spot for little legs and a variety of walkers. It is possible that an all-terrain stroller could navigate the terrain, but would still be a bit bumpy and carriers are recommended in case children get tired. The trails within the park intersect, which allows you to take a variety of paths if you chose. The park also offers wildlife viewing, snowmobile trail, snowshoeing trail, picnic area, foraging, and a portable toilet is usually available in the parking area.

Hello, I’m Abby, one of the Branch Ambassadors for the Madison, WI Hike it Baby branch. I’m a mom to 3 kiddos ranging from baby to school aged. I’m from Cincinnati, Ohio and have lived in several states over the past few years including Indiana, Ohio, Florida and now Wisconsin! We’ve lived here since May 2017 and have absolutely fallen in love with the area and LOVE to explore all the outdoor areas around us. Hike it Baby quickly became part of our lives and has built an amazing community for our family. Looking forward to continue helping families explore and love the outdoors one hike at a time! Can’t wait to see you out on a hike!
