Myself and ZMallory are planning to hike the hike the entire Northern Unit of Kettle Moraine, WI (32 miles) in a 3 day trip (Friday through Sunday). I have made shelter reservations for 10 people at shelter #5, so slots are open if anyone is interested.
Our roughed out itinerary is below.
April 1 - Meet at Shelter #1 by noon. Park a car at the trailhead at Shelter #1 and drive up to the trailhead at HWY P and park a second car. Hike 7.73 miles into Shelter #5. There is water at Shelter #5.
**If we have a 3rd of 4th car, it may be nice to park a car at Mauthe Lake so we can drive to the gas station if needed on night #2.
Day 2 - Hike from Shelter #5 to Mauthe Lake. This will be a 14.86 mile hike. Camp at Mauthe Lake instead of Shelter #2 due to water being available and pizza delivery until 3am.....yes, there is pizza delivery. We confirmed it last time.
*Now for Mauthe Lake. They do not start taking reservations until April 15th, so it will be a first come, first serve situation and we self register at the gate shack. It will be $12 for a No Electric site and $17 for a site with Electric. This will allow people to find that "perfect" site and then team up with whomever they like and split the costs associated with that site.
***If anyone just wishes to car camp, they could meet us here.
Day 3 - Hike 8.99 miles to the trailhead at Shelter #1. Travel North to pick up the second car and head home.

Again, I have reservations the 1st night for 10 people at shelter #5, so if you want to go, just let me know. I have covered the cost of night #1 (only $25). Night #2 would be on each person. Please, if you are going to backpack with us, be ready for a 15 mile day on day two. If you want to car camp or car camp and or car camp and hike the final day with us, you can meet us at Mauthe Lake.
