Guided Trail Hike and Annual Potluck Picnic

  • Burroughs Trailhead N Shore Dr La Pointe, WI, 54850 United States (map)

Free and Open to the Public

Join us as we explore and hike the rustic trails of Madeline Island.  MIWP member Fred Koerschner will guide the hike. The hike will wander through ancient Hemlock stands, perhaps old Lake Superior shorelines, and hopefully will encounter an abundance of wild mushrooms, migrating birds and autumn color. Trail route will vary pending trail conditions — hike may be an out/back or shore­-to-shore route.

Note these trails are rustic; good hiking boots and an adventuresome spirit are required. Depending on recent weather, trails can be wet in spots so waterproof footwear recommended.

NE Trail Hike will meet at the Burrough’s Trailhead
2.5 miles north of Benjamin Blvd at 3060 North Shore Road

9:00–11:00am, possibly until 12:00pm depending on chosen route.

Annual Fall Potluck Picnic following the hike. All are welcome, even if you don’t join the hike!

Picnic Location: Home of Mark & Bonnie Matuseski, 1348 Big Bay Road.
