Pike Lake State Forest
Explore the trails around Pike Lake, part of the Kettle Moraine State Forest. Through this immersive experience, students will see the glacial landforms, left behind from the Ice Age, that this park helps protect. The trip begins at the Visitor Center to better acquaint ourselves with the landscape. Students will climb the 60-foot tower on top of Powder Hill – a glacial kame that is a striking and key feature of the park. The tower offers a 360-degree view of the countryside for miles around as well as of the 522-acre spring-fed kettle lake that the forest is named for. We will also search for animal inhabitants while hiking the scenic Black Forest Nature Trail and portions of the Ice Age Trail, covering a variety of habitats from forest and prairie to field and water.
