Write On, Door County is offering a new Hike & Write series on the trails of its new writing center in Juddville. Each month, there will be a new theme for hikes that are ideal for families, individuals and those looking for a safe, beautiful outdoor activity. Booklets that guide visitors on a hike will be available at the trailhead and at writeondoorcounty.org/visitus.
February’s theme is Find the Benches, Find the Beauty: a guided hike to search for beautiful cedar donor benches carved by Norm Wiedemeier. Each bench also features an etched brass nature plaque by Mary Ellen Sisulak and hides a special word chosen by the bench donors. The writing activities invite visitors to explore nature and pause at the benches for creative writing and drawing.The half-mile loop starts behind the writing center, 4210 Juddville Road, and the activities and walk take about an hour to complete. No reservations are necessary. The building is open by reservation Tuesday – Sunday, 10 am – 4 pm.
