Event Information


Hey-Hi Hoofers,

Join us for a challenging day hike at the Kettle Moraine State Forest – Lapham Peak Unit in Delafield, WI (just west of Milwaukee). 

Trail Name: Moraine Ridge Trail

Distance: 6.6 miles

Difficulty Level: Advanced





The goal of this trip is to challenge ourselves on some hilly terrain over a moderate distance. Also… to have fun and get outside!

Lapham Peak’s glaciated topography was formed 10,000 years ago during the last ice age. It provides excellent hiking and backpacking.

Meet at the Park Street Circle between 8:15-8:30am

By 8:30 am, leave for Lapham Peak

By 9:30 am, arrive at Lapham Peak

From 9:30 am – 2:00 pm, hike the trail, eat lunch, enjoy each other’s company

By 2:00 pm, leave for Madison

By 3:00 pm, arrive back in Madison 



Please wear supportive shoes/boots with a good outsole that you are comfortable walking up and down trails in. 

Bring your own water, food (we will eat lunch in the park), and sun protection. 


Right now, space is limited because there are no large fleet vehicles available. We can increase the number of participants if we can find additional drivers or if a larger vehicle becomes available. Please reach out if you’re interested in driving.
