Touring Trip – Kettle Moraine State Forest

OSHKOSH – MAUTHE LAKE (Northern Kettle Moraine State Forrest)

Date: September 23-24 or 25


WHAT TO EXPECT

We will depart from Winnebago Bicycle at 8:00am on Saturday (9.23.2017).  Our route will take us south on quiet roads until we reach Fond du Lac.  We will head towards Eden and pick up the Eisenbahn State Trail.  Eisenbahn State Trail is both paved and gravel, the majority being the latter.  Please make sure your bike and you are ready to tackle crushed gravel! We will more than likely stop  for lunch in Campbellsport, which is approximately 8 miles from our campground.  Once checked in and setup of your site is complete, feel free to hike, explore, nap, or anything you’d like, we do not have anything planned as a group.  If you have room, bring a fishing pole to try for a shore lunch!

Our route, this may deviate from the map slightly due to wind direction, construction, or heavier than expected traffic volume.

The return trip will be broken up into one of two options.  One departing for home on Sunday, the other Monday.  Both will follow the same return route.  Both the Sunday and Monday group will leave the campground in the late morning.
