Make sure kids wear clothes that are ok to get wet and dirty!

Scuppernong Springs: Nature’s Playground

Spent a lovely afternoon hiking, exploring, and playing along Scuppernong Springs nature trail (near Ottawa Lake in the Kettle Moraine State Forest). It took us 2 hours to work our way along the loop. We climbed trees, played in streams, floated bark boats, and squished around in the mud. If you live in Southeast Wisconsin be sure to take your kids to this kid-friendly trail. They will love it!
