Xtreme Hike Wisconsin


About Xtreme Hike

Welcome to the 4th Annual Wisconsin Xtreme Hike.  Since 2013, our hikers have traversed over 2,500 miles of the Ice Age Trail (IAT) and have raised over $330,000 toward finding a cure for cystic fibrosis (CF). We are proud to bring our hike to central Wisconsin and explore the Devil’s Lake State Park section of the IAT.  Featuring rolling prairie, wooded slopes, balanced rock trails, and vertical stone steps, this year’s location epitomizes the physical and philanthropic challenge of Xtreme Hike.

The Wisconsin Xtreme Hike will take place over the weekend of September 23-25, with 25+ miles of trail to be conquered on Saturday.  Our hikers will enjoy accommodations for three days and two nights at Devil’s Head including our classic Friday night pasta party, our post hike blow-out and campfire, and our ‘Victory’ brunch on Sunday. 

Cystic fibrosis is a life-shortening disease which requires our commitment to find a cure. Xtreme Hike embodies this challenge in mind, body and soul.  While we prepare physically for Xtreme Hike, we also challenge ourselves to raise individual amounts of $2,500 and a state goal of $133,000.  

 The journey of participation includes:

  • Three months of training hikes starting July 9 and 10th
  • Training, work out, and hiking coaches
  • Urban hike tours and weekday Happy Hour Hikes
