WisCorps puts on three popular yearly events.
River to Ridge 5 Mile Run/Walk
The River to Ridge 5 Mile route is engulfed in nature’s beauty! This challenging trek starts at the Mississippi River in Riverside Park, winds through the La Crosse River Marsh trails, and leads to a lush, green view of the Mississippi River Valley from Hixon Forest’s bluff top.
Enchanted Forest is a non-scary, trick-or-treat hike through Myrick Park, where your child can dress up in their Halloween costume and meet fairytale characters as they collect candy and other goodies along the way.
Upon reaching the end of the hike, families will find a fall festival waiting for them, with activities, games, music, a magic performance, petting farm, and refreshments!
Great Pumpkin Chase 5K RunWalk
The Great Pumpkin Chase 5K Run/Walk is one of the La Crosse area’s most scenic 5K run/walk events – featuring a course that is 100% off pavement! Participants will trek through the colorful foliage of Upper Hixon Forest during this unique autumn race.
