Washington/Ozaukee County Chapter “First Day” Hike
January 1, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
We will partner with the Friends of Pike Lake, to kick off 2018 outdoors! You will have an option of hiking or snowshoeing either 2 or 4.5 miles round- trip. The trails are rated “moderate” because of some hills.
A Wisconsin state park sticker is not required. The DNR will provide coffee and hot chocolate at the bonfire pit after the hike.
LOCATION: Meet at the Pike Lake State Park beach parking lot on Kettle Moraine Drive. Click here for directions. Watch for yellow “Ice Age Trail Event” signs.
WHAT TO BRING: Wear comfortable hiking boots and dress appropriately for the weather. Bring water and sunscreen.
INFORMATION ABOUT THE AREA: The Pike Lake Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest is located in the middle of the Kettle Moraine, a strip of glacial landforms which extends through southeastern Wisconsin to Lake Winnebago. This provides for a beautiful glacial remnant landscape of kames, kettles, and eskers. The Forest is named after the 446-acre, spring-fed kettle: Pike Lake. Powder Hill, a large glacial kame, also provides the opportunity for a great hike and view. Visitors can enjoy camping, swimming, hiking, fishing, picnicking, and much more within the Forest.
