“Secret” Places to Hike in Manitowoc County

While there are a number of places to hike in Manitowoc County, Secret Manitowoc County Trails_2015 that don’t get much use.

Park Rd. Entry to Point Beach State Forest Shoreline 11/3/16

The swale that hikers must cross to get to the beach has been flooding periodically the last couple of years. We erected a 4×4 with blazes and arrows along the west edge of the swale about a hundred yards north. Walk along the west edge of the swale, not along the top of the sensitive dune. At the 4×4, hikers can hop onto a dry area and then onto the beach to proceed north (and Vice versa).point-beach-entrance-park-rd-to-shore

 

 

 

 

 History

The Lakeshore Chapter was formed in 2007, when volunteers from Door, Kewaunee and Manitowoc counties and the North Kettle Moraine area merged into one chapter. Our chapter members work to support the mission and goals of the Ice Age Trail Alliance by promoting, planning, building and maintaining the Ice Age Trail from Fond du Lac County to the Eastern Terminus in Sturgeon Bay.
