Stewart Lake County Park
Stewart Lake County Park was established in 1935, making it the first county Park in Dane County. Within this 191-acre park is shimmering Stewart Lake, an artificial lake on spring-fed tributary of Moen Creek. The lake offers a challenge for trout and bass fishing. (Dane County Parks Department)

A ski jump was built on the steep hillside to the southwest of the lake with a landing site near the lake's current sandy western beach. From 1913 to 1920, Stewart Park was alive with visitors to attend world-class ski jump competitions. The events attracted thousands to the valley, and provided entertainment to amazed crowds. Special passenger trains ran from Madison-Mt. Horeb to accommodate the visitors. (Friends of Stewart Park)
A wonderful place to visit and hike. First time 08/22/2021, and to think we’ve been coming to Mt Horeb for three decades.
