COUNTYCOUNTYGSF10THE HIKEIDDThe area traversed by the Kewaskum Segment has a rich Native American hisNew Fanetory. The word Kewaskum means “crooked river”in Algonquin, the languageof the Potawatomi who once inhabited the area.

later, only a few returned.The Kewaskum Segment heads north from its starting point on Ridge Roadthrough the Ice Age Trail Alliance’s 125-acre Roman and Mercedes Otten Preserve, home to not only the main segment route but also an additional 2.5 milesof loop trails. The main segment route features light forests and upland fieldswith spectacular views of the Otten Preserve and the surrounding areas. Fromthe hilltops, hikers can look for Kewaskum and Campbellsport to the northand the Dundee Kame and Kettle Moraine State Forest to the northeast. Thisportion of the segment is a magnet for birds and hikers should keep an eye outfor meadowlarks, bobolinks, turkeys and several birds of prey. In spring, thewoods are filled with a gorgeous display of trillium and jack-in-the-pulpit, andin late summer, there are many areas of gooseberry and raspberry patches. Aspur trail (WA32) to a Dispersed Camping Area (DCA) for long-distance, multiday hikers is located 0.5 miles from the parking area on Ridge Road.After passing through the Otten Preserve, the segment continues east acrossthe Sunburst Winter Sports Park property (covering a prominent kame) on aneasement granted by the Summit Ski Corporation. The segment intersects (WA2)Prospect Drive, where hikers should turn left and follow the road 0.3 miles north.The segment departs Prospect Drive heading east along a field edge, crosses aseries of boardwalks, then skirts the southern edge of the “tank farm” beforearriving at USH-45. The segment crosses under USH-45 via an underpass builtspecifically for the Ice Age Trail. After periods of heavy rains, the underpass isoften swamped with water. Therefore, as conditions warrant, hikers should turnleft and hike north 0.1 miles along USH-45 to the intersection with CTH-H.Cross USH-45 at the stoplight, turn right onto the Eisenbahn State Trail and hikesouth 0.1 miles to where the Trail heads east.East of USH-45, the segment intersects the Eisenbahn State Trail, a stateowned multiuse recreation trail on the former C & NW Railroad right-of-way.Twelve of the 24.0 miles of the abandoned former rail corridor are maintained,extending from the city of West Bend to Eden in Fond du Lac County. “Eisenbahn” is German for “iron road,” harkening back to this rail line’s heritage andoriginal construction in 1871. The segment very briefly follows the EisenbahnState Trail north to the segment’s terminus where the Ice Age Trail heads off theEisenbahn State Trail to the east.From the Eisenbahn State Trail, the Milwaukee River Segment (WashingtonCounty) heads east then south, skirting a wetland mitigation site. The Trailcrosses a boardwalk, cuts through woods and along the edge of a field and thenenters a forested area. As the segment meanders through the forest it crosses awet area on a curving boardwalk and travels below and alongside a ridge, gradually climbing the ridge until the segment reaches an open field (WA23) just beforecrossing Sandy Ridge Road. The open field offers nice, long views of the surrounding fields and forested hills in the distance.After crossing the road, the Trail continues north through an open field and upthe side of a hill, then shortly drops down into the woods and courses through amore hummocky area passing grassy depressions and wetland openings. Alongthe way, the segment enters the Kettle Moraine State Forest—Northern Unit314 Ice Age Trail Guidebook 2020 – 2022 Edition

The segment offers quiet passage through the forests, distant viewsfrom a ridge and opportunities to observe a variety of wildlife, including birds,plants and woodland flowers.The segment starts where the Ice Age Trail crosses Kettle Moraine Drive at apoint about a quarter mile north of the Fond du Lac/Washington county line.A short distance ( 0.3 miles) from the start, after passing over rolling hills andprairie grasses, the segment intersects (SF8) a spur trail that leads to the KettleMoraine State Forest—Northern Unit (KMSF-NU) New Fane Trails parkingarea. The segment continues through hardwood forests with some prairie clearings that contain an abundance of wildflowers like pinnate prairie coneflower,Queen Anne’s lace and more. Just before reaching CTH-DD, the segment parallels a well-worn bike path.320 Ice Age Trail Guidebook 2020 – 2022 Edition

In 1926, the Milwaukee Chapterof the Izaak Walton League protected Mauthe Lake, known as Moon Lake at thetime. This initiative was a precursor to the development of the Kettle MoraineState Forest and the Ice Age Trail. Ray Zillmer, founder of the Ice Age Trail Alliance, was a long-time member and president of the League.The segment heads north from the entrance road and skirts along the eastern edge of the Mauthe Lake campground. Be careful not to get confused by thefrequent side trails that connect the campground to the Ice Age Trail. The segment cuts by Forest Lake with scenic views from the southern shore.
