Hike the Reindeer Trail at Peninsula State Park

Strange tracks have appeared at Peninsula State Park. “I heard the jingle of bells and then felt a whoosh,” said Peninsula State Park Naturalist Kathleen Harris. Come see the tracks for yourself by hiking the Reindeer Trail.

The Reindeer Trail, a half-mile woodsy walk, will be ready for young trail trampers on Nov. 25, from 12 – 3 pm or while supplies last. Prance along the trail to learn about members of the deer family, and to gather treasures along the way. End your walk with a cup of hot cocoa by an outdoor campfire. Decorate a small wooden tabletop snowman, too. The self-guided hike takes about twenty minutes. In case of inclement weather, the trail will be shortened and the art project and cocoa moved inside the Nature Center. The Nature Center will be open from 10 am – 3 pm.

On Nov. 24, park visitors are welcome to join the Naturalist from 10 – 10:45 am at Park Headquarters for an Evergreen Trail Hike. Discover facts and folklore of favorite holiday trees. Learn a bit of Peninsula State Park history, too. The talk will take place inside, in case of inclement weather. The Nature Center will be open 12 – 3 pm.

Programs are free and open to the public, but a state park vehicle sticker is required. Donations are appreciated. For more information, call 920.868.3258 or email [email protected].
