Waukesha/Milwaukee Co. Chapter -Tyke Hike at Lapham Peak

September 9, 2023 @ 10:00 am

The Tyke Hike:

Join us on a Family-friendly stroll along Wisconsin’s own Ice Age National Scenic Trail! This year our Tyke Hikes will focus on Wisconsin-based picture book authors and Ice Age Trail segments in Waukesha County. We will explore a tyke-sized portion of the  Lapham Peak Segment in Waukesha County. 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:

This hike’s picture book is Sophie’s Squash by Pat Z. Miller. After reading this book, we will hike for approximately 30 minutes at a child-led pace 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. Bring water.


Watch for the yellow Tyke Hike signs to guide you to the Tower in Lapham Peak.
