Waukesha/Milwaukee County Chapter: Wee Walkers Hike – Hartland Marsh Preserve @ Cottonwood Wayside
September 10 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Hartland became Wisconsin’s first Ice Age Trail Community in 2015, and their walking club was formed to bring people–both adults and “Wee Walkers”–together to enjoy the trail, community, and each other. This September, get outside with your kids and enjoy watching them march to the beat of their own drums. We’d love to have you join the “Wee Walkers” for a hike!
Starting at the Cottonwood Wayside, we will complete the beautiful 1.2 mile loop trail through the Ice Age Marsh. We will move at a “toddler pace,” exploring and enjoying our surroundings as we walk. This hike is recommended for ages 2-8, but all ages are welcome (kids must be accompanied by an adult). Walks are led by 5-year-old Simon, 3-year-old Ophelia, and their mom, Christina, an Ice Age Trail volunteer (and kid at heart). Check their Facebook page for updates.
This is an easy hike and will last approximately two hours. Participants can elect to head back to the starting point at any time. Leashed dogs are welcome. Dress for the weather. Christina Callies and the Hartland Recreation Department organized this hike. Register in advance (to ensure that you receive notification in the event this hike is postponed or canceled) or simply show up at the Cottonwood Wayside. There is no fee for this activity.
Park at the Cottonwood Wayside lot. We will meet at the pavillion.
Email comments or questions to your hike leader, Christina.
