Duck Lake Nature Area Trail Description

The Duck Lake Nature Area Trail follows the southern side of Lake Como between Lake Geneva and Como, Wisconsin, not far from the Illinois state line. The trail is more rustic than most rail-trails and is restricted to hikers only.

Scenery abounds along the former rail bed, and a variety of birds call the area home. In fact, the trail is alternatively known as “Warbler Walkway” due to the frequent appearances—or rather unseen chirps—of that species on the trail.

Parking and Trail Access

There are no official parking areas for the Duck Lake Nature Area Trail, but the trail can be accessed in residential areas on both ends (South Shore Road in the west and Edgewood Drive in the east).

Duck Lake Nature Area Trail Reviews

A nice trail off the main trail. A bit of rough terrain, rocks, lots of vegetation, pretty flowers. Lots of bugs, take bug spray. It's a.63 mile trail that ends at a small dam. It was good for a beginner hiker like me.
