First Day Hike 2016

First Day Hike 2016

Join us on New Year’s Day for a First Day Hike from 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. at Devil’s Lake State Park! Meet at the Steinke Basin Parking Lot on Hwy DL.

Wisconsin State Parks is once again hosting First Day Hikes on New Year’s Day. These hikes offer visitors an opportunity to begin the New Year rejuvenated and connected with nature. This year at Devil’s Lake, we are going to take a twilight hike/snowshoe through Steinke Basin.

Dress warm as it looks like we’ll have winter-like temperatures. It looks like we might have enough snow to snowshoe too. Bring your snowshoes or borrow a pair from the Park – There are kids and adult sizes available to use for free. (Remember, your car will need its 2016 park sticker or a day parking pass!)
