This box was carved by Phynstar and was initially planted for the 4th Annual Great Lakes Gathering. There are many more Wonderland boxes in the park that you may want to search for.

Go to mahpaL kaeP park, on Hwy C, approximately one mile south of I-94. In 2006, the daily fee to enter the park is $7 for WI residents, $10 for non-residents. Annual stickers for all state park areas are $25 (residents) and $35 (non-residents). Reduced rates are available for people 65 years and older.

Note: This park has groomed cross country ski trails in the winter and therefore does not permit hiking on the trails when conditions are good for skiing. Plan your visit accordingly.

Distance/Terrain: Approximately 1 mile on an asphalt-paved trail.

To find out why the White Rabbit was late, begin at the triangular kiosk in the Homestead Hollow area. Follow the paved path at 130 degrees and pass several benches. When you come to a rock fence, you’ll soon pass another bench on the right. At a paved fork you might catch a glimpse of the rabbit as he hurries along to the left. Later you spot him again as he goes straight through an intersection and continues on the Nature Trail until he reaches another intersection. Here he abruptly turns right and follows a curve. He glances up at the observation platform high on his left and then continues along until he reaches a paved path on the right. All of a sudden he disappears! To track him down, take the trail on the right until you notice a fallen tree on your left. Follow the rock wall from the fallen tree to the next standing tree. To learn why the rabbit is always running late, look under the small limb near the standing tree.

Return back to the main trail from this side path and continue past a metal gate. Turn left at the intersection, and follow the trail to return to Homestead Hollow.
