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 Delafield Segment which is adjacent to Cushing Memorial Park. This year, we will focus on Wisconsin-based picture book authors and Ice Age Trail Segments. Our tyke hike will begin after this month’s featured picture book, Boom! Boom! Boom! by Jamie Swenson. 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.


This hike will start out at Cushing Memorial Park. Watch for yellow Tyke Hike signs to guide you the the meeting point.
