Washington/Ozaukee County Chapter #OptOutside Hike
November 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Pike Lake Unit is 446 acres and most of the segment follows the edge of a glacial ridge through heavily forested maple and beech woods. Pike Lake is a spring-fed kettle with a very popular sandy beach; the segment reaches the swimming area parking lot 0.5 miles after first entering the unit. The segment crosses Kettle Moraine Road and makes its way uphill for 0.9 miles to an intersection with a spur trail. The spur climbs 0.2 miles to the top of 1,350-foot Powder Hill, one of the larger kames in the area. The lookout tower on top offers spectacular 360-degree views.
Event details: Join us on an #OptOutside hike as we explore the Pike Lake Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest. We’ll use the loop trails for a 4.6 mile hike. A shorter 2 mile loop is also available. Dogs are welcome, but must be on a leash and under the owner’s control at all times. A Wisconsin state park sticker is required. Wear comfortable hiking boots and dress appropriately for the weather. Bring water and your camera! Click here for a map of Pike Lake Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest
