OutWiGo ‘Trails of Newport’ Hiking Challenge: Week 1

June 16, 2022 @ 9:00 am 10:00 am

This Week’s Hike

Fern Trail
1.2 miles
Meet at Lot 3 at 9:00am

As part of the Wisconsin DNR OutWiGo initiative, Newport SP Naturalist Beth Bartoli is leading a 13-week progressive hiking challenge covering every trail in the park.  OutWiGo encourages everyone to improve their overall health and wellness by getting out and active in the outdoors. 

Hikes will take place on Thursday at 9:00am. We will begin on June 16th with the shortest trail loop (1.2 mi.) and end with the longest trail loop (7 mi.) on Sept 8th. Please join us when you can. On the final hike (Sept 8th), miles will be tallied and participants will enjoy a pot-luck picnic together.

These are not meant to be interpretive hikes; the purpose is to get out and enjoy some physical activity. Everyone is encouraged to hike at a pace that is comfortable for them. Hikes will be held as scheduled, except for extreme weather conditions. (We hike in the rain!)

All programs are free, but a state park admission sticker is required on all vehicles.
