Have you ever wanted to walk along the Ice Age Trail. Ever wonder how the Kettle Moraine was formed? Experience and enjoy Wisconsin’s own Ice Age National Scenic Trail!
The Ice Age Trail is one of only 11 National Scenic Trails in the country,  a 1,200 mile footpath found entirely within the state of Wisconsin. It traverses through some of the state’s most beautiful natural areas and winds through 30 counties on state, federal, county and private lands. More than 2.3 million people use the Ice Age Trail each year to walk, hike, saunter, snowshoe, and backpack! Outdoor lovers of all ages and abilities step out on the Ice Age Trail to relax, explore and enjoy all that nature has to offer.
Join a “Thousand-Miler” and other active volunteers in the Ice Age Trail Alliance for this introductory presentation. Come learn about the IAT — its history and glacial features. Learn tips and tricks for spending time on the IAT, hear about the wildly popular October Mammoth Hike Challenge, and leave with plenty of resources to have a safe and successful journey.
