Hiking the Ice Age Trail: Monches Segment
Wednesday, September 14, 2022 | 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$25.00 – $30.00
Over its 1,000-mile course, the Ice Age National Scenic Trail in Wisconsin is renowned for its scenic beauty and impressive geologic features. This hike will be led by Director of Education Tom Finley. Adult Programs Coordinator Michelle Allison will point out migrating birds during the hike.
We’ll loosely follow the course of the Oconomowoc River as the trail winds its way through a beautiful hardwood forest near Lake Keesus, Camp Whitcomb, and the village of Merton. Many of the features we’ll encounter were created near the end of the Ice Age, some 12,000 years ago.
Expect to hike approximately three miles over sometimes rugged and occasionally steep terrain.
The field trip begins and ends at the Monches trail segment in Washington County. Further details and directions will be emailed to registered participants the week prior to the trip. There are no rest facilities at this location.
Members: $25 | Non-Members: $30
