Waukesha/Milwaukee Chapter Fall Mid-Week Hike: Monches Segment & Oconomowoc River Conservancy Park
October 26 @ 10:00 am
A mature maple forest is the setting for much of the Monches Segment. The approximately 25-acre Oconomowoc River Conservancy Park provides passive recreational activities such as walking, hiking, skiing, wildlife observation and bird watching. It has been developed through a partnership between the Town of Merton and the Tall Pines Conservancy.
Meet at the Ice Age Trail Parking Lot on Kilbourne Rd. (formerly Funk Rd) east of North Lake, WI. We will then hike the Monches Segment north to where we pick up the connector trail to the Oconomowoc River Conservancy Park. We will then hike the Conservancy Park and return to the parking area on Kilbourne Road. The hike will be between 3 and 4 miles long. Dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes/boots. Layers are helpful this time of year! Bring water for the hike.
This hike will start out at the Ice Age Trail Parking Lot on Kilbourne Rd. between Hartland and North Lake.
