Tyke Hike – Waukesha/Milwaukee Co. Chapter
June 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Hike: – CANCELLED – With the wet conditions, more rain possible, and little chance of significant drying, tonight’s Tyke Hike is canceled. Sorry for any inconvenience, but we hope to see you next Tuesday at 10AM at Centennial Park in Hartland.
Join us on a family-friendly hike to explore Wisconsin’s own Ice Age National Scenic Trail! We will explore a tyke-sized portion of the Merton Segment in Waukesha County. Families with children of all ages are encouraged to attend!
Tyke Hikes are short, slow-paced hikes. They last approximately 1-2 hours and can cover up to 1.5 miles. These hikes focus on exploration, discovery, service opportunities and natural play. Peter Dargatz, a forest kindergarten teacher and Ice Age Trail volunteer leads the Tyke Hike. He often includes a picture book story, educational materials and certificates for children.
Tyke Hike Details:
This hike will start out at the beginning of the Merton Segment trailhead. We will hike for approximately 45 minutes and return, occasionally stopping for play and exploration. Hikers should dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable shoes/hiking boots. Bring water.
The yellow Tyke Hike Signs will guide you to the meeting point at the Ice Age Trail parking lot off of E. Kilbourne Rd.
Questions? Peter will answer them for you.
Please come “get lost in the right direction” with us!
