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.

I absolutely LOVED hiking here. It was beautiful, there are tons of different trails. I believe a lot of these trails are also used for some type of skiing too. lol I found out that meant that depending on the direction you choose to go it can make the same path more challenging than going the other way i.e. If you go the direction the skiers go down it's slightly easier than going the opposite direction. The black path also crosses over the Ice Age trail a few times.

Super easy, but a favorite. Love the tower.

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