The Valley View segment is a delightful suburban jaunt through restored prairie, with views west to Blue Mounds. This portion of the segment is on the terminal moraine and is a fine example of prairie and oak savanna restoration. A Mobile Skills Crew event in 2021 extended this off-road segment to Timber Rd.
Join hike leader, Rich, on a 3.2 mile round-trip (out and back). There is an opportunity to learn about the natural features and restoration efforts from interpretive signs. Please bring bug repellent and water.
Take Mineral Point Rd. ~2.3 miles west of the Beltline, turn left on Pioneer, and then right on Valley View which curves left and becomes Mound View Rd. Go another .5 miles to the kiosk on the west side on Mound View Rd and the intersection of Moraine Ridge Road. You can park along Moraine Ridge Road by the kiosk, but please be mindful not to park on any resident’s property. Valley View map.
