If you have a bike and a little time, head up to the Kettle Moraine State Forest north of Kewaskum and take the Lake to Lake bike trail. The 6.5-mile trail connects Mauthe Lake and Long Lake with the little village of Dundee in between. You’ll know Dundee as home of biker-favorite Hamburger Haus and a 2006 Extreme Home Makeover project, as well as the ancient kame called, appropriately, Dundee Mountain.
I like the sound of my bike tires crunching over the limestone-surfaced trail. The ride through hardwood forests, prairies, conifer plantations and lowland swamps is broken by a field of pink flowers as I round a corner, with friendly Dundee Mountain a dot in the distance.
