About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

The Trail at Shelter #1 is a 1.6 mile loop. It runs along the Koshkonong River, which provides opportunity to see all kinds of wildlife viewing. The trial is a mix of dirt and pavement, a portion of the trail loop is part of the CanRock Trail which is paved. There is access to a bridge on the CamRock Trail a short distance away from the loop that goes over the river to access more trails if you’d like to explore more. It’s a great spot for littles to throw sticks in.

This trail head has restrooms (maybe seasonally closed), picnic area and playground equipment. Recommend carriers for little walkers and babies, strollers aren’t usable on the dirt portion of the loop.

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!
