The cover of the picture book Flip! Float! Fly! by Joann Early Macken

The Tyke Hike:

Join us on a Family-friendly stroll along Wisconsin’s own Ice Age National Scenic Trail! We will explore a tyke-sized portion of the Lapham Peak Segment. Families with children of all ages should attend!

This year, we will focus on Wisconsin-based picture book authors and Ice Age Trail Segments. Our hike will begin after this month’s featured book, Flip! Float! Fly!  by Joann Early Macken. Families with children of all ages should attend!

These hikes give kids the opportunity to explore, discover and participate in natural play. They last approximately 1-2 hours and can cover up to 1.5 miles. Tyke Hikes are led by Peter Dargatz, a forest kindergarten teacher and Ice Age Trail volunteer.

Tyke Hike Details:

We will hike for approximately 30 minutes and then return. There will be occasional stops for play and exploration along the way. Hikers should dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable shoes/hiking boots. Most importantly, bring water.


Please meet at Lapham Peak’s Evergreen Shelter.
