The lake is right next to the student housing and there is a running and biking path that goes for miles around the lake. I had a few extra hours on a recent business trip and took advantage of a beautiful fall day to run on the path. The UW students are pretty lucky!

Lakeshore path remains the same as it did 20 years ago. Thank you for taking such good care of it! Fun to bike down to picnic point. Check out some of the new dorms!

Spending an evening strolling along the waters edge, taking in a beautiful sunset, is a great way to cap off a day of sightseeing and shopping while visiting Madison, and all it has to offer. I highly recommend this too all who are considering a trip to Mad City....

While we were checking out the campus, we decided to walk off our ice cream from the Babcock Hall Dairy Store. It was a beautiful day on the great trail.

This is a beautiful lake in Madison perfect for watching sunsets, boating, and fishing. This lake is a bit more choppier than Monnona but is also quite a bit bigger too. Overall a must when in Madison.
