Hike 5 took us to the Ice Age Trail Loew Lake Segment
We had so much fun on this trail. The first part of the segment had a ribbon of pine needles as it’s trail. The yellow blazes on the trees indicated the path. The whole area smelled of pine and faintly, cedar. It was so hush.
The second half of the trail took us closer to the lake and marsh area. We walked along the Oconomowoc River. This section had more deciduous trees that had yet to regain their leaves. The bird calls were crisp and clear.
We walked about 1.5 miles out and back of the 5 available miles. This is definitely a segment that I want to revisit. Total mileage for the challenge: 7.75
