Bog News Update about Sunday's Winter Hike
Cedarburg Bog ice conditions along the route of the Winter Hike – as of Friday, 1/29/2016
Conditions may change by Sunday 1/31, but as of now the Bog is frozen and we are planning to hike to Long Lake and Donut Lake. The forecast for Sunday is for temperatures well above freezing and possibly rain, so expect soft, slushy, wet snow.
“Gripons”, or ice cleats, are not likely to be necessary, but it never hurts to bring them along if you have them.
Bog hikers must be willing to accept the risk associated with this hike off-trail in the Bog. There is always an unavoidable risk of tripping and falling. Glasses are always a good safety measure to avoid getting poked in the eye.
