First Sunday Hike at Obey Center - August 1st

Come and join us for our First Sunday Hike on August 1st.   JoAnn Parks will be leading a hike on the Chippewa Moraine Segment.  Come join us as we hike on an in-and-back hike beginning at the Obey Center and heading west to 267th Ave.  The hike will take you down the Ice Walled Lake Plain and past a series of lakes, including the uniquely named “North of North Shattuck Lake”.   Come and enjoy this beautiful piece of trail.  

The Obey Center just re-opened on Saturday, June 26th after its Covid-related closure.  You will have the opportunity to check out their glacial and Chippewa Valley History displays, check out some live critters, and view a glacial video.  The staff is looking forward to seeing you.

Hikers should meet at the Obey Center parking lot on Hwy. M at 1:00 pm.  Wear sturdy walking shoes or hiking boots, long pants, and long sleeve shirt.  Be prepared to tuck your pants legs into your socks.  Bring water and a snack.  Mosquito repellent is recommended.  Wear a mask at the parking area if you have not been vaccinated.  Maintain 6 feet of distance on the hike.    Please send  an RSVP to JoAnn at
