Trippe Lake Park is home to one of the largest hills (known as "Killer Hill") in Whitewater. At the top, you get a beautiful view of downtown Whitewater across from Cravath Lake before you throw yourself onto a sled and descend. Thrilling and a good work out when you have to trek back up to the top!
Prefer a leisure winter activity? Grab your snowshoes and head to any one of these little slices of heaven. Through a variety of terrain and beautiful views, you’ll enjoy an afternoon of peacefulness.
The Kettle Moraine State Forest is a site to behold in the winter, whether because of snow-filled pine forests or old growth bare oaks and hickories. Grab those skis for a break from cars and city noise. These trails offer a variety of experience levels so you can ski with minimal effort on flat terrain or challenge yourself on tougher trails that offer more slopes.
Whitewater offers vast stretches of countryside, perfect for cruising on snowmobiles. If you have questions, there’s a group of avid snowmobilers in the area with all the answers. This activity requires that you have your own snowmobile, so if you don’t have one, give a wink, wink nudge, nudge to a friend who does, and then get out there and ride free. It’s an exhilaration you won’t soon forget.
Trailheads off of:
Enjoy hitting the trails on your bike? Throw on those fat tires and head to the the John Muir Trail system at N9097 Co Rd H. If you’ve already biked these trails in the summer or fall, take pleasure in noticing the differences between seasons.
Sometimes, there's nothing more winter than sitting on a bucket or in an ice shanty in the middle of a frozen lake waiting for the fish to bite.
Not a fan of iced-over lakes? Bundle up, lace up your skates, and have some fun on the ice at Big Brick Park - 611 West Center Street! And since it's in Whitewater, you're close to all the hot cups of coffee and warm bowls of soup.
