This annual hike is done in conjunction with the Four Lakes Group Sierra Club and is led by David C. Smith. It is likewise posted on the Madison Area Outdoor meetup group.
Join us for a 4 – 5 mile spring hike through prairies and forests at New Glarus Woods State Park. The hike is moderate with rolling hills and ravines and a great opportunity to see spring ephemerals just starting to bloom and trees just budding out.
Carpooling from Madison meets at 9 AM at the western Hill Farms State Office parking lot, 4802 Sheboygan Ave. Otherwise, meet at the parking lot off State Hwy 69, 2 miles south of New Glarus at 10 AM. There is a $5 fee for parking at the New Glarus location. Also, a State Park sticker is required for cars at New Glarus Woods. Lunch option at a local Swiss restaurant afterward if interested.
