Waukesha/Milwaukee Chapter Fall Mid-Week Hike: Waterville Segment

The Hike:

The Waterville Segment is a gently rolling, easy to moderate hike. We will see the transformation of this segment that has taken place over the last year: new boardwalks, extensive clearing, two new Dispersed Camping Areas, and several trail relocations including almost 1⁄2 mile now off Waterville Road.

Details:

Meet at the Pinewoods Group Camp parking area next to the kiosk (near site D). We will leave some cars there and drive to the UW-Waukesha Field Station. We will hike the 5.5-mile hike back to the Pinewoods Group Camp. Those wishing a shorter hike can leave a car on Hwy D. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes/boots. Layers are helpful this time of year! Bring water for the hike and a lunch if you wish to picnic afterwards.

Location:

This hike will start out at the UW-Waukesha Field Station.
