The Awesome Hike That Will Take You To The Most Spectacular Fall Foliage In Wisconsin

There’s not really such a thing as a bad hike in Wisconsin in fall. Our state has done an amazing job of setting aside public land for us to enjoy and explore. We have such a wide array of geology and geography that no matter where you are in the state, you can find unique and fascinating spots to explore as the leaves start to change. We’re also so blessed to have the Ice Age Trail wending it’s way for 1,000 miles through the state and the different segments are a totally manageable way to get out an explore. From the Northwoods to the Mississippi Valley and from the Driftless Region over to Door County, there are plenty of gorgeous spots for a fall hike, but one of the very best and most underrated spots is west of Milwaukee in Hartland on the Monches Segment of the Ice Age Trail.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

The Monches Segment is just off Kilbourne Avenue between Hwy E and Hwy 83 in Hartford. There is parking located nearby in an Ice Age Segment parking lot at N78W30778 Kilbourne Rd, Hartland, WI 53029.
