Waukesha/Milwaukee Chapter Evening Hike

November 18 @ 5:00 pm

Free

Join us for a fun night of hiking in the dark and a warm bonfire afterwards! We will hike on the Lapham Peak Ice Age Trail and hiking/ski trails for approximately 4 miles. We will meet at the Evergreen Grove Shelter parking lot at the Lapham Peak Unit of the Southern Kettle Moraine State Forest. From the shelter, we will head east toward the 45-foot observation tower. This hike has some challenging hills and rocky terrain. Walking sticks, hiking boots and water are recommended. This hike will take place after dark, so also bring a headlamp or flashlight. Gun deer season kicks off this weekend but not to worry! Hunting is not allowed at Lapham Peak so we are safe to hike throughout the park. We will have a bonfire after the hike, so be sure to stick around, and bring a camping chair, beverages and food to roast over the fire!

Watch for the yellow and black Ice Age Trail Event signs as you enter the park, to guide you to our meeting place. You will need a State Park sticker to enter the park.
