Devil's Lake fall hike on Tuesdays - LAST HIKE

Thought we might do hiking Devil's Lake every Tuesday until it gets too dark or too cold....so this is it...our last hike. I will be coming after work as soon as I can, so if Tess beats me there, she will start the group out. We will start the hike promptly at 5:30! 

For our last hike, we will take the West Bluff and then return on the Tumbled Rocks path (base of west bluff).  Please bring a flashlight just in case as it is getting dark early now.)  The beginning is steep, but then it is easier the rest of the way.  The fall colors were still very beautiful this week when we hiked. 

Those who want to can stop afterwards at Hooty's (no, not Hooters) or The Barn to have dinner and/or beverage or beer.  This link gives you a map of the hiking trails:  http://www.devilslakewisconsin.com/wp-content/images/Devilslake.pdf

If it is actively raining, this meetup will be cancelled. Otherwise I will watch the Baraboo forecast and let people know. Please be aware the weather in Baraboo often is not the same as in Madison.

You do need a vehicle sticker or daily pass to get in since it is a state park, which can be purchased at entry if needed. This meetup is in conjunction with Madison Outdoor Group and Energizers.

    It was fun, even though the conditions weren't perfect. Sorry I missed the get together after.

    Hi folks, it'll be dark when we finish, so try to bring a flashlight if you can. Thanks.

    I'd like to come with my 3 year old, he's actually a pretty good hiker for his age, and could drive from the Madison area. I'll plan on leaving all valuables at home.

    Just a word of caution. Careful while you are there. I just saw on the news last night about when people come back to their cars, they found windows broken out and items stolen. Evidently this is has been going on for two years, mostly during the summer. Make sure you cover up any valuables or put them in the trunk. Have fun!
