The National Ice Age Scenic Trail traces the border of the incursion of ice from the north into North America. Extending from Interstate State Part on the Minnesota border to Potawatomi State Park on Lake Michigan, it winds for over 1,000 miles through Wisconsin. (See map at right)
Largely maintained by volunteers, the trail offers a great destination for hiking and sports enthusiasts, a nature conservation haven, and it also helps tell the story of the last Ice Age in Wisconsin.
The trail is roughly about as old as I am, but I only discovered it for the first time this month when I visited one county park that lies on the path.
I will share that story in my next post. Meanwhile, you can follow these links to learn more about the Ice Age Trail:
