The Pike Lake Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest is in the middle of the Kettle Moraine, a strip of glacial landforms which extends through southeastern Wisconsin to Lake Winnebago. This provides for a beautiful glacial remnant landscape of kames, kettles, and eskers.
The trail may be confusing at first.. We got lost but we manage to find our way to the top, just required extra energy and effort, but extra workout! Follow the Ice Age trail, read signs and know the color codes carefully. The kiosk was really helpful cuz it tells you exactly where you are just in case you're lost. Need more of those in other hiking places hehe.
Overall, great workout, great hike, amazing view. Would go back here anytime!

Fun shorter trail, lookout tower offers a nice view.
Great hike from the beach up the ridge to the tower. The view is so worth the hour long trek uphill to get there. Can't wait to walk this trail again once the leaves change. We saw a deer on the way up and came across an old abandoned hay rake just off the trail.

A favorite go to trail when we want to go for a hike. Beautiful in the fall with all the sumac and oaks. Fun features along the trail - old farm fence lines, signal trees, springs and a look out tower.
