Ascent Trip Report

At little Ogema, WI I got on Route 86 east, which took me shortly to the entrance to Timms Hill County Park, where I followed signs over narrow, lushly vegetated tunnels of road to a parking lot near a lake. There were a bunch of construction workers hanging out in the shade of a picnic shelter, but I was the only tourist. A sign pointed uphill to Timms Hill, and a very short uphill walk through thick woods on a wood-chip trail brought me to the base of an observation tower at the summit of Wisconsin.

Timms Hill was a close to road/tower highpoint, which means that I didn’t have a summit snack, but I did climb the tower, which provided views over the deep woods and little lakes of the northern Wisconsin landscape. After taking my pictures I walked back to the car in the intense heat and left, working my back out to Route 86 a different way on the curvy one-way roads of the County Park. Another day, another high point.

The highest point in Wisconsin is marked by a fire tower in thick forest (1989-06-27).
