Waukesha/Milwaukee County Chapter: Wee Walkers – Centennial Park

January 7, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Wee Walker hiking in the snow


Hartland became Wisconsin’s first Ice Age Trail Community in 2015, and this walking club was formed to bring people–both adults and “Wee Walkers”–together to enjoy the trail, community, and each other. Start the New Year right by getting your kids out of the house and onto the Ice Age Trail with the Hartland Walking Club’s “Wee Walkers” program–monthly hikes designed especially for tykes! We’d love to have you join us for a walk!

The Walk:

Join Hartland Walking Club’s “Wee Walkers” as we embark on our 2023 series. This year, we aim to hike the ENTIRE Hartland Segment of the Ice Age Trail–out AND back!! Centennial Park is the northernmost point on the Hartland Segment. We will start there and head south each month in 2023 until we complete the full segment! Anyone who accomplishes this goal with us will earn a free “Hartland Segment” pin! We will start at Centennial Park and head south for an out and back hike on the Ice Age Trail. Moving at a “toddler pace,” we will stop to explore and enjoy our surroundings as we go. Check our Facebook page for updates.


This month, our out-and-back hike will total approximately 1.5 miles. We will trek from Centennial Park to Hartbrook Park and back. This section of trail is not maintained in the winter, so expect snow and icy conditions. This hike comes with a bonus of not one but TWO playground stops! Please dress and prepare accordingly. If weather conditions are unsafe we will cancel. Walks are led by 5-year-old Simon, 3-year-old Ophelia, 1-year-old Rhea, and their mom, Christina, an Ice Age Trail volunteer (and kid at heart). All ages are welcome; kids must be accompanied by an adult. Recommended for ages 2-8, but all ages are welcome. Kids must be accompanied by an adult.

Christina Callies and the Hartland Recreation Department organized this hike. Register in advance (ensure that you receive notification in the event this hike is postponed or canceled) or simply show up at Centennial Park. There is no fee for this activity. *Note: We love furry friends, but dogs are not allowed on a section of this trail, so please leave them at home this month.


Meet at the parking lot at Centennial Park. We’ll either be layering up by our car or playing on the playground waiting for our hiking buddies to arrive!
