Join fellow Nordics and Ice Age Trail Alliance members at Pike Lake State Park for a fun night of hiking in the dark beginning at 6:00 pm under an almost full moon and then a warm bonfire afterwards. This hike has some hills and rocky terrain. Hiking poles, hiking boots and water are recommended. Part of this hike will take place after dark, so bring a headlamp or flashlight. The hike will be about a 4-mile loop.
After the hike we will have a bonfire at the amphitheater which is near the parking area and the entrance to the park on the North side. If you would like to stay for the fire bring a camping chair, beverages and snacks if desired.
Dogs are welcome, but must be leashed and under the owner's control at all times whenever using the Ice Age Trail. A Wisconsin state park sticker is required and there are restrooms at the starting location. Contact Becky at 414-294-9619 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
