a full-day integral bike trek in Kettle Moraine State Forest

Dates of Lake to Lake Kettle Moraine bike treks:

  1. TBA
  2. TBA

The Northern Unit of Wisconsin's Kettle Moraine State Forest is located in western Sheboygan County, southeastern Fond du Lac County and northern Washington County. It is over twenty miles (32 km) long, and extends from just outside Glenbeulah, on the north end, southward to just east of Kewaskum. Both the Northern and Southern Units of Kettle Moraine State Forest are situated at the terminal edges left by the receding glaciers during the last Ice Age. It is named for two of the glacial features: kettles and moraines. There are also drumlins, kames, and eskers. It's a really interesting place with lots of wicked hills.

The 6.5-mile Lake to Lake Trail connects Mauthe Lake and Long Lake recreation areas and is open to both bicyclists and hikers. Here are some links to more information about this unique Wisconsin natural area and these particular treks. Download the registration forms and equipment list in particular.

The Lake to Lake Trail is a 6.5-mile (one way) limestone-surfaced trail that goes up and down ("gently," they say) through mixed forests, along prairies, pines and swamps, connecting Long Lake and Mauthe Lake. Each end is a state recreation area and campground.

We will begin at the main parking lot at the trailhead at Mauthe Lake. From there we will bike North to the Long Lake Recreation Area, where we will pause for lunch and some mid-day journal work. After lunch, we will return to one of the picnic areas at Mauthe Lake Recreation Area for supper. There are restrooms at either end of the trail.

On registration, each participant will receive "before you go" materials including trek information, map(s), and journal work to do before the day of the trek. At the site, participants will receive a metal water bottle, journal notebook and pencil, hand sanitizer and wipes, and a disposable facemask (all yours to keep). We'll provide a bag lunch and cooked supper as well. See the registration form above for a complete description. The writing exercises are drawn from a number of proven approaches, all with the intention of facilitating your awakening. This Integral Trek will work your body, calm your mind, and lift your spirit!
