Spring Hike - New Glarus Woods State Park


This annual hike is done in conjunction with the Four Lakes Group Sierra Club and is led by David C. Smith.

Join us for a 4 – 5 mile spring hike through prairies and forests at New Glarus Woods State Park. The hike is moderate with rolling hills and ravines and a great opportunity to see spring ephemerals just starting to bloom and trees just budding out.

Carpooling from Madison meets at 9 AM at the western Hill Farms State Office parking lot, 4802 Sheboygan Ave. Otherwise, meet at the parking lot off State Hwy 69, 2 miles south of New Glarus at 10 AM. There is a $5 fee for parking at the New Glarus location. Also, a State Park sticker is required for cars at New Glarus Woods. We have lunch reservations at the New Glarus Hotel, a local Swiss restaurant, for those who are interested.

Hope to see you there!
