If you’ve wanted to explore deeper into Devil’s Lake State Park and the three state natural areas within it where there aren’t trails, the new guided Adventure Hikes are your chance. Register April 3, 2017 for five half- and full-day hikes April through October each limited to six participants to explore the park’s 10,000 acres.
These two- to six-mile hikes are half or full days through challenging terrain and require you be in good physical condition and comfortable in the backcountry of the Wisconsin’s largest state park. Expect steep climbs, stream crossings and thick undergrowth with rewarding vistas and beautiful, rarely seen wilderness.
The publisher of the online Devil’s Lake State Park Visitor Guide www.devilslakewisconsin.com, Derrick Mayoleth of Skillet Creek Media in Baraboo, Wis., leads these hikes. Derrick previously worked in the park for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and has spent more than 20 years exploring, photographing and promoting it. He’s also an experienced paddler and hiker who’s trekked around the globe. He’ll share natural and cultural history, tips for exploring further and his love for this park.
