    Yup, it's not listed as a scenic trail - it is scenic - it's listed as a scientific trail. The trail follows the moraines created by the Wisconsin Glaciers 15,000 plus years ago. Along it's route, you can see various geographic features created by the glaciers. Here in Devil's Lake State Park, there are a few unique items. The most notable is the glacial moraine, that creates Devil's Lake.

    Small, but full of stuff animals for the kids. Includes information on the glaciers and how they created the area. There is also an native American mound group across the parking lot. Simple, but rare this far north and away from the Mississippi River.

    Both the north and south shores of the lake have swimming beaches. The North Shore has more parking and access from the campgrounds. The South Shore is near the group camping site and is more heavily wooded nearby.
