This is fun for the whole family!

10:30am – Walkers/Families

Course Description
The 3K course is moderately undulating through woods and prairie, a quarry and a cave. The trails are surfaced with gravel or grass. Obstacles include:
A 60ft observation tower, Quarry Trail and Rope Climb, Cave (walking and some crawling, dogs excluded from this portion), Fun Trail, and clearly marked trails with a water station.
No strollers on the course please. Dogs allowed on the course (excluding caves, must be leashed at all times) for final time slot.
Thank you for understanding.

Enjoy live music, food, and drinks during our Boulder, Beer, & Boogie Picnic after the 3K Course! Entry to the picnic is free and brats, burgers, and beers will be available for purchase.
Groove to the tunes of Two Souls, a local Wisconsin band, and enjoy beverages from a local brewery while spending quality time with friends and family out at the nature center and park. This picnic runs in conjunction with the Ledge View 3K Caveman Adventure Fun Run/Walk Fundraiser, but attendees to the picnic are welcome to join in the fun without participating in the 3K course.

Funds raised through this family-friendly event will go toward increasing and improving the environmental education and recreational opportunities we provide to our growing community.
