Waukesha/Milwaukee Chapter Fall Mid-Week Hike: Parnell Segment
September 14, 2021 @ 10:00 am
The Parnell Segment is somewhat challenging; parts of the Trail in this area can be steep and rocky. This portion of the segment will take us along some of the four-mile-long Parnell Esker. One of the most striking and world-famous collections of kames in the world is found near the area between the Trail and Hwy 67.
Meet at the Parnell Observation Tower Parking Lot. We will leave some cars there and drive to the Butler Lake parking area. We will hike 4.3 miles from Butler Lake to the Parnell Tower. Afterwards, additional hiking can be added on at the Parnell Tower. Dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes/boots. Layers are helpful this time of year! Bring water for the hike and a lunch if you wish to picnic there.
This hike will start out at the Butler Lake parking area.
Questions? Mark Miner, your hike leader, will answer them for you.
