Get out on National Trails Day with the Niagara Escarpment Resource Network as we host four simultaneous, geologist-led hikes through some of Wisconsin’s most fascinating geologic landscapes.
Oakfield Ledge is one of the most significant exposures of the Niagara Escarpment in Wisconsin. Located along Horicon Marsh, the hard, erosion-resistant Niagara dolomite walls form a series of prominent rock cliffs 40′ high – what locals call “the ledge.” Join NERN on this rare opportunity to be led on a tour with State Geologist, Ken Bradbury!
Come help us celebrate the Ledge and kickoff NERN’s new WI-LEDGE Geotourism Program and online WI-LEDGE Rambler Map Guide. Limited to 15 persons for each hike so sign up soon!
Directions: From the intersection of County Highways B and Y on the south side of Oakfield, go south on CTH B 3.2 miles, then east on Breakneck Road 0.6 miles to a parking area just past the top of the hill. Tour will start from this parking area.
Park in the small lot on Breakneck Road just east of the intersection with Centerline Road: 43.64690351910202, -88.58023244697468
