Hike & Picnic Lunch at Ferry Bluff

Join us Memorial Day Weekend for a hike and picnic lunch at The Ferry Bluff State Natural Area. It's located a few minutes from downtown Sauk City (about 35 miles northwest of Madison).

There's a parking area at the base of the trail. We'll meet there at noon, hike up the trail to the bluff that overlooks the Wisconsin River (Cactus Bluff), and enjoy a picnic lunch. Before the event I'll provide more logistical details (including carpooling options) to those who RSVP.

This event does not include any extreme hiking. It's about 10-15 minutes of hilly walking (each way) through the woods.

There is no charge to attend this event.

What about kids?
Kids of all ages are welcome. Just make sure any kids you bring can hike the trail or be carried by you. Also be aware that there is a 300-foot bluff we'll be near.

What to bring:
Everyone is responsible for bringing their own lunch and plenty of water. You might also want to take along a blanket, insect repellent, sunscreen, and a camera.

What if it rains?
Unless there's a big storm, we'll meet as planned.

    Bhuva and Ann, you can ride with us tomorrow. Would it work to meet at Hilldale Mall parking lot (outside the entrance to The University Bookstore) some time after 11am? E-mail me tonight if you want to ride with us.

    I'm cold all the time as it is, and with the chilly forecast and possible rain, we're going to skip it. Next time!

    Hi Dave, is there a car-pooling option for this event?
    I can join someone driving from the Hilldale area.

      Maybe someone can swing by on their way... If you're going tomorrow and the Hilldale area isn't too far out of your way, please coordinate with Bhuva and Ann. Thanks!

      Another option would be to bike to the meeting point by my place in Middleton.

    *maybe. Been dying to find a good place to go hiking around here, so I am leaning toward yes. Will depend on a few things. Will know as the date approaches.
