The Red Loop is an intermediate loop that is 2.3 miles long. It is a short and narrow trail with some steep terrain. You’ll pass through pine plantations and hardwood forest. This trail is doable with established walkers and older children, but recommend bringing a child carrier for early walkers or young children. There are some portions of the trail with steeper terrain, please be aware of this.

All trails in this system have the same trailhead, be sure to follow the RED trail markers to stay on this loop. You can extend your hike with intersecting points of te other loops if you choose, but be sure to bring your map. Recommend checking out the observation loop at Trail Marker S8, it will only add a short distance onto the over all trail loop. The observation loop is a lollipop trail, and has a nice bench and overlook onto the surrounding Kettles. There is a neat tree and some rocks for children to play on and around.

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!
