A short (1.2 miles) very pretty hiking trail (rated moderately difficult) along the top of an esker between the Mondeaux River on the north side and a wildlife filled large pond marshy area on the other.
This partly sunny, partly dark-gray cumulus cloudy 50 degrees fall day was great for a hike, the only difficulty was knowing how warm to dress as the sunny parts were too warm and the cloudy parts rather cool. The only sounds were whispering of the breeze, the crunch of leaves, murmuring of ducks and the occasional goose honk from the watery areas below.
The return part of the hike offered no surprises although the beauty of the day remained.
Mondeaux Flowage itself is being drained down again this year, it is not very pretty right now with mud flats showing. However, looking skyward the sunset had nice tangerine and then pink cloud highlights and the all-you-can-eat fish and coleslaw dinner at the Mondeaux lodge did not disappoint.
