Climb a 45-foot observation tower atop the highest point in Waukesha County (1,233 feet above sea level). Lapham Peak Unit's glaciated topography provides excellent hiking, backpacking, and cross-country skiing on lighted trails.

Super easy, but a favorite. Love the tower.

It was crazy muddy and slippery on this wet spring day.

there are many trail options. I did the moraine ridge trail, which as per the website is 6.6 miles and is tagged advanced. I got lost three times so as a result ended up clocking 9.3 miles in about 2 hours 45 minutes. so far, this has been the best hike because it was just a wee bit challenging with its ups and downs. it is a very well marked trail and while I wouldn't call it strenuous, it definitely is not a walk in the park.
