Fall Hikes – Go Back in Time Oct. 3 & 17th

Join retired Park Naturalist Ken Lange Saturday, October 3 or October 17 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. for a geology hike through the Devil’s Lake State Park. The hike will begin at the Steinke Basin parking lot with an orientation. The group will hike across the road and walk up onto the end moraine of the Wisconsin glacier and talk about rocks transported by the glacier. You will follow the trail onto the top of the south end of the East Bluff, where you’ll see the potholes, Devil’s Doorway, an Indian marker tree, a 200 year old red cedar, a quartzite glade, and pygmy forest unique to Wisconsin. The group will return to the parking lot around 5:00 p.m.

Some sections of the trail are steep.

The only requirement for the hike is the vehicle needs a valid park sticker.

Meet at the Steinke Basin Parking Lot at 1pm.

    Our family from Chicago has a plan to visit Wisconsin for a fall color – this must be a good chance for us to have a nice hiking!

    Where can we buy the park sticker?

    Thanks
