Co Rd Z, Eagle, WI 53119
Only 19 minutes outside of Whitewater, this is an extremely beautiful place to hike. Originally this was a farm lane, but since it has been converted into a one mile loop hiking trail through the former 180 acre Stute Farm.
There is a brochure that you can access here to guide you through the trail. It shows you where the location of the outhouse, the big hill overlook, the smokehouse, the farmhouse, the milk house and many more. This is a very interactive trail that is different from anything else that I have previously posted about. This is definitely worth the trip!
Just 24 minutes outside of Whitewater, in Eagle, WI, you can find the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. This is a leisurely trail that has some excellent views. This trail is one of 42 designated Wisconsin State trails. And is a trail that your whole family could enjoy.
These trails are named because of the glaciers that were located in the Kettle Moraine area. Some people say this is the best evidence of glaciers that you can witness in Wisconsin. This trail is no longer than 4 miles, but the entire Ice Age Scenic Trail, was established in 1980 and runs about 1,200 miles in total.
From my personal experience, I went with my family this past summer. This is a beautiful view that you can witness when out on the trail. If you come into the park from Highway 59 and go up to Highway Z its about a 3.1 mile hike. I would recommend doing this hike in the summer rather than the winter months because of the wildlife. The flowers and trees make for vibrant colors and great views. It would still be an excellent hike in the winter months but I’m all about getting the best view.
