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.

Awesome!

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.

Beautiful!

Solid trail, mostly wooded with some nice hills. Lapham peak tower is a nice spot.

Very beautiful scenery at this time of year. Somewhat muddy but that's because it drizzled last night. Over all, very nice trails, quite a variety and very nice people. Daily pass to get into the park is $10 as of today, March 21st, 2015

Hiked here a few weeks ago. The ridge trail is stunningly beautiful! The view from the top of the tower is one of the best I have ever seen! Going back to try one of the many other trails!
