Hello adventurers! I highly recommend this nature trail! The path to the bluff is only .5 miles and the view is very worth it! Jade and I hiked about 3 miles all together. This trail also leads into the forest and connects to the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. I highly recommend questing in the snow! It’s very beautiful! Unless it’s like a blizzard and -25 degrees…haha Address: Co Rd H, Palmyra, WI 53156 I’m excited it snowed for this last hike! Until next time, Quest on adventurers! ~Crystal 🙂
Hi everyone! I can’t believe the semester is almost over! There hasn’t been any snow yet.. For my last quest I will be going to Bald Bluff Trail! Below is a pdf of this area 😀 http://dnr.wi.gov/files/PDF/pubs/pr/PR0231.pdf Woo! ~Happy questing!
This trail is amazing! It is really beautiful and links to the adjacent segments to the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. SO BE CAREFUL and read the map carefully; There is a path that takes you to the next segment of the Ice Age Trail, THIS PATH DOESN’T LOOP TO THE PARKING LOT. PLEASE BE AWARE! Address: 7206 US-12, Whitewater WI 53190 From the parking lot, hikers can (safely) cross the highway to access another beautiful hiking loop! We hiked the side with Lake La Grange 🙂
Hello adventurers! I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! For my 8th nature quest, I will be going to the Ice Age National Scenic Trail, South Kettle Moraine. Here’s the address: 7206 US-12, Whitewater, WI 53190 I’ll update the Quest Log most likely Saturday night… or early Sunday, just to let you know! 🙂
Hi, sorry this post is late! We didn’t adventure to all three cemeteries…BUT we made it to the Calvary Cemetery (on campus) and the Indian Burial Mounds (within town). There is three cemeteries in Whitewater, WI: Calvary Cemetery, Hillside Cemetery, Oak Grove Cemetery. It was very fun going on a night quest!! It felt like we were transitioning between worlds! The cemetery and burial mounds were quiet, peaceful, and a tad scary. Each area gave off a different vibe and I can’t believe how old some of the tombstones are! We stopped at Walmart to use the restrooms and it felt like we time traveled. I wish I could take pictures with my eyes! The night sky was beautiful and had a purple glow to it. We could see the stars too!
Hi adventurers, I can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week already! For this next quest my friend suggested doing a Halloween Quest since it’s the last week before Thanksgiving. Side note: I also didn’t get to celebrate Halloween this year..so this will be fun! On Saturday, we will be adventuring to each cemetery(3) in Whitewater,WI 😀 I will update the Quest Log, most likely, late Saturday night!
Hi fellow adventurers! Sorry this is late, I’m terrible! Stute Springs is a wonderful place! The actual loop is 1.5 miles but Kenny and I trekked The Big Hill. We hiked about 2.3 miles! The hill was so worth it! From the ground, it doesn’t look like the hill is that tall, it’s a hidden gem! Highly recommend it! Address: Co Rd Z, Eagle, WI 53119 This trail also had guided maps! Here’s the link to the PDF: http://dnr.wi.gov/files/PDF/pubs/pr/PR0535.pdf I took pics of most of the numbered landmarks. #3 The Farmhouse, is torn down. Chunks of the stone fence are still there though.
Happy Wednesday! It is getting colder each week so bundle up fellow adventurers! This week, I’m going to Stute Springs Nature Trail! The address is: Co Rd Z, Eagle, WI 53119 This trail has a 1.5 hiking loop and is across from the Emma Carlin Trail. I’m going either Friday or Saturday so I’ll update the Quest Log Saturday! ~Happy Questing! 🙂
Hi fellow adventurers! Sorry for posting this late…:/ This quest ended up being a solo adventure! It was cold and kind of rainy, but very peaceful at the same time 🙂 I will definitely be returning here to complete the other loops. There is a scenic outlook on the map(Viewed in the quest gallery) that I am curious about! Here is the address for the trail: Co Road Z, Palmyra, WI 53156 I have also updated the quest stats game to include more deductions; this will help balance the game. See you Wednesday! ~Crystal
