Summary:

   

Great family activity! We'll start at the Discovery Center and take a 4-mile road ride to the WinMan Trails. Once onsite, we'll hike in a little ways with your guides to a fire pit to learn the ins and outs of cooking over a fire. We'll fix up some cowboy coffee, rustic fry bread, eggs and more. Satisfied and hydrated, we'll hop on our bikes and head back to where we started. Best for children ages 10 and up.


CURRENT PROGRESS CONTINUED (as of June 1, 2014): 

  • Application for RTA Funding: We're looking for funding and submitted a State of Wisconsin Recreation Trails Grant... notification this summer.
