Mill Bluff State Park offers guests the ability to get away from noisy city life and soak in some nature. Two total miles of hiking trails can be found in Mill Bluff State Park, all of which give guests several glimpses of the areas buttes, pinnacles, and rocky mesas. The Mill Top Trail leads guests up to a flight of rough-hewn stone stairs that lead to the top of the bluff that gives the park its name.
Make sure that if you're attempting these trails, you first obtain a free trail map from the Wisconsin State Parks website. Weather can severely affect the ability to navigate the paths here effectively, so check Mill Bluff State Park's offices for more info before you set out. If you're bringing a dog along, make sure to put them on a leash no longer than eight feet, and scoop up anything they might deposit as they walk.
If you're a swimming enthusiast, Mill Bluff State Park contains Mill Pond, a 2.5-acre spring-fed body of water that offers guests the chance to enjoy a pristine white sand beach as they play in the water. Public showers are located just north of the swimming areas for a small fee, as well as changing stalls. No safety staff exists on the beaches here, to guests swim at their risks. Canines are allowed on the shore but are strictly prohibited from entering the water.
Cycling is another significant activity in Mill Bluff State Park, due to its trails being the entrance to Juneau County's 15-mile Omaha Bike Trail. This series of trails leads guests through two of the region's State Forests and eventually connects to the more southern Elroy-Sparta Cycling Trail. If you're someone looking to have a long, overnight ride, this is the perfect area to pack your bike up and head out for an adventure. Sorry pet owners, but these areas are for bikes only.
