Event Description:
December 21st, 2019- Hike to Kelp Village
1.5 miles, rating: Easy, 1.5 hours long, Meets at the Nature Center

We will kick off our Winter Hike Series with a hike to a small village that once existed within the Brown County State Park boundaries. With the holidays coming, we will take a nice visit to this area is search of remnants of Kelp Village, as we imagine what the holidays would have been like in the hills of Brown County over 100 years ago. This hike will meet at the Nature Center before carpooling to the Strahl Lake Parking Area and head along the original road bed towards Kelp Village. We will travel approximately 1.5 miles, in total, on easy terrain. Dress for the weather and bring along your archeologists’ eye as we explore the area in search of ruins.   

Advanced registration is not necessary and there is no limit on attendance, so feel free to get your group together and come along for these exciting hikes.

All hikes start at 11:00am (unless otherwise noted). Some will include a quick carpool to the trailhead, so please be ready to provide your own transportation.

Dogs are more than welcome to join us as long as they are on a 6 ft. leash and get along well with other dogs and humans alike.

Please be sure to dress for the weather and wear proper footwear for these hikes. Read these descriptions and make sure this is something you and/or your group are up for. Bring plenty of water as well as snacks for these adventures.

In extreme weather conditions cancellations may be necessary, but we will go in the snow! Check our website and Facebook for conditions and cancellation information. />
