Waukesha/Milwaukee Chapter Mid-Week Hike
October 15 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pmFree
Join us for a Mid-Week Hike on the Gibraltar Segment of the IAT in Columbia County. This striking segment traverses mixed woodlands, prairies and fields. It features dramatic climbs and wide ranging views of Lake Wisconsin, a farm-filled valley and the Baraboo Hills.
We will meet at 9:30 a.m. at the Gibraltar Rock Trailhead on Highway V. We will shuttle to the State Highway 113 Ferry Wayside and hike the 4.5 miles back to the Gibraltar Rock State Natural Area. Weather permitting, we will enjoy a picnic lunch atop Gibraltar Rock.
Hikers should wear comfortable hiking shoes or boots and dress appropriately for the weather. Plan to bring water and a lunch. A walking stick and insect repellant are recommended. Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash no longer than 6 feet and under the owner’s control at all times. Don’t forget your camera!
