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 on hilly terrain around 8-10 miles depending upon the energy of the group. Afterward, we'll have a late lunch at the LaGrange General Store.

just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
