Hike at Petrifying Springs

We will hike Petrifying Springs (or more affectionately known as "Pets") -- about 3 or 4 miles. Pets and the adjoining UW-Parkside campus have many miles of easy-to-moderate hiking trails through a beautiful forest and along the Pike River. The trail can be muddy in places, so wear good walking shoes you don't mind getting dirty. If the trails are too muddy, we will switch to the paved path instead. We will meet in Parking Lot #2. In case of rain or inclement weather, we will cancel the hike so please check meetup ahead of time if the weather is looking iffy.

    Darn. The paths had just dried out to an almost-perfect condition prior to the recent heavy rains. Yesterday (Wednesday) it was very muddy at Pets. The forecast looks good, so the next few days might dry things out better, and I'll adjust the route according to the conditions. However, probability is high that there will be mud, so make sure to wear shoes that you don't mind getting dirty.

    Also, if you want to hang and chat after the hike, bring a "sack lunch" (whatever that is for you) and we can commandeer a picnic table or two.

    I just joined and would love to meet up at Pets, but I work every other Saturday and that's a work day. I look forward to other opportunities.
