A Welcome Retreat

Kettle Moraine State Forest offers loads of trails for various uses. If you can, park at the forest headquarters off WI-59, which is free. The Ice Age Trail runs straight through here, and there's even an overnight shelter.

Very peaceful hike, awesome park!

Went here with my mom, we really enjoyed the hike there. Lots of wildflowers, trees, prairie grasses and deer. Make sure to check out the tower in the park. The view from the top is amazing!
