Kettle Moraine - Nordic Ski Trails

  • Jun 21, 2014 · 11:30 AM

This is a beautiful hike on rolling hills through pine plantations, prairies and southern hardwood forests in Wisconsin's Southern Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest.

We'll hike about 10 miles with many options to shorten. The trails are very well-marked, so everyone can hike at their own pace. I'm a fairly slow hiker, so I'll be towards the back.

Afterward, we'll have a late lunch at the LaGrange General Store.

Hiking distance: 10 miles on hilly terrain, with options to shorten

Hiking time: approx 4 hours

Parking: $10 per car (unless you have a WI annual sticker)

    Sorry I was too late and missed the group. Hiked the trail anyway-in the rain-but it was still great. Thanks Linda for getting me out there.

    I hope you guys managed to avoid the big storm. Also, I found a deer tick on my thigh so inspect your clothes carefully.

    I'm driving from Chicago's north side (Edgewater), and happy to give anyone a ride there.

    If anyone needs a ride from Southwestern suburbs along I-355, my boyfriend and I will be leaving before 9am and can share a ride. You may need a ride back though since we plan to explore and possibly stay overnight.

    I'd be interested in carpooling if possible. I live in South Evanston, but near both a Metra and L stop so I can easily get to somewhere more convenient to meet up. If more drivers are needed I could get a Zipcar for the day.

    I'll be there camping so perfect time to join you guys!
