Waukesha/Milwaukee County Chapter – Twilight Trail Hike Series: Monches

July 31, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

Fireflies along a wooded trail


The Waukesha/Milwaukee County Chapter of the Ice Age Trail Alliance is starting a new hiking series: Twilight Trail Hikes. These hikes take place on weeknights (moving to weekends in the fall/winter as the twilight hours get earlier with the cooler seasons). The first three summer hikes will be on Monday evenings later in the month and near the full moon. No need to register, just show up!

Notice! There is a topic/theme for each hike. All are welcome to bring information, stories, and trivia to share before, during, and/or after the hike.


Discussion topic/theme: Fireflies   >>   Whether you call them fireflies or lightning bugs, hopefully we will see some of these beetles on our hike!

We will do a loop trail hiking north on the Monches segment to the connector trail and hike through the Oconomowoc River Conservancy Park.


This hike is 3+ miles, with a difficulty rating of easy. Remember to dress appropriately for the weather and bring water and a flashlight/headlamp. Dogs are welcome but must be leashed and cleaned up after. Please bring water for your dogs as well.


We will meet at the Ice Age Trail Parking Lot — Monches/Merton on E. Kilbourne Road. Look for the IAT event sign as you approach this hike event.


Questions or comments can be made through our  Waukesha/Milwaukee IAT Chapter Facebook page or through our chapter email.
