Northern Kettle Moraine: Scaling Dundee Mountain
Wednesday, July 20, 2022 | 10:00 am - 2:00 pm$45.00 – $60.00
The Northern Kettle Moraine is renowned for its scenic beauty and impressive geologic features. Join Director of Education Tom Finley as we traverse Dundee Mountain and the Greenbush Trails.
Our day begins at the Long Lake south picnic area. We’ll hike our way through a forest and then the slopes to the top of Dundee Mountain – which offers a great scenic view of the countryside, and Long Lake. Dundee Mountain was created at the end of the last Ice Age, some 10 – 12,000 years ago, and has an elevation rise of approximately 200 feet.
After a bag lunch at the Long Lake picnic grounds, we drive north to the Greenbush Trails for an afternoon of scenic hiking along the beautiful Kettle Moraine to view kettles and moraines!
Overall, expect to hike several miles over sometimes rugged and occasionally steep terrain, but also to be rewarded with fresh air and stunning vistas.
The field trip begins and ends at the Northern Kettle Moraine State Forest. A vehicle admission sticker is required. Further details and directions will be emailed to registered participants the week prior to the trip. Pit toilets are available.
