Wisconsin Hiking Hot Spots

Let’s face it… this is Wisconsin; we very well could have a 55 degree day in March. And with the first day of Spring right around the corner it’s time to dig out the hiking boots, pick out a trail, and prep for the nice weather to come!

One of the state's most popular hiking destinations is Door County's Peninsula State Park. Enjoy nearly 35 miles of trails that wind through hardwood forests and along towering limestone bluffs.  While you’re in the area, be sure to check out the White Cedar Nature Center and the 132-year-old Eagle Bluff Lighthouse. On March 6, the Nature Center will host a birding extravaganza. Trivia, photos and even recordings will help you identify birds heading north to Wisconsin. Afterwards, see if you can spot some! 

Blue Mound State Park is another favorite hiking spot in southwestern Wisconsin. Set atop the westernmost of two mounds, walkers can experience wooded trails, including the Military Ridge State Trail, and a spectacular view of the countryside from the park's perch, the highest point in southern Wisconsin.

So lace up those boots, grab a friend and enjoy the spring air!
