OutWiGo ‘Trails of Newport’ Hiking Challenge: Week 3

June 25 @ 9:00 am 10:30 am

The Hike this Week

Monarch Trail
1.7 miles
Meet at Lot 1 at 9:00am


As part of the Wisconsin DNR OutWiGo initiative to get outside and participate in healthy activities, Newport SP Naturalist Beth Bartoli is leading a 13-week progressive hiking challenge covering every trail in the park.  

Hikes will take place on Tuesday at 9:00am. We begin on June 11 with one of the shortest trails and end with the longest trail loop (7-ish miles) on September 3. Please join us when you can. On the final hike (Sept 3), miles will be tallied and participants will enjoy a pot-luck picnic.

These are not 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.
Some programs are weather related, so check with the park if you have any questions.
