6 great hiking trails in Wisconsin


As April showers turn into May flowers, enjoy the changes in nature by getting outside more. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has a list of six trails to hike this spring.

Ice Age Trail: Cedar Lakes Segment

Find it: Parking lot and trailhead on County Highway NN, north of Slinger

Spring is a great time to see land formations often obscured by foliage in summer and fall. This segment of the Ice Age Trail provides a look at one of the densest collections of kames in the state. The cone-shaped hills were created by sediment left behind by streams that pushed through open shafts in glaciers.
Follow the yellow blazes of the Ice Age Trail south from Highway NN, and don’t miss the trail marked by white blazes that loops around one of the most prominent kames. Look for woodland and prairie flowers such as trillium, jack-in-the-pulpit and violets. Ferns fill the wooded areas of the trail in the summer.
