Route: Ice Age Trail (WI)

Wisconsin, US
823.3 mi

The Ice Age National Scenic Trail winds for over 1000 miles though rural Wisconsin, from St. Croix to Potowatomi Park at Sturgeon Bay. The Ice Age Trail Alliance "protects, promotes, builds and maintains the Ice Age Trail", in cooperation with the Wisconsin Deptartment of Natural Resources, the National Park Service, and local governments and private landowners.

The Ice Age Trail is under development and consists of trail sections and some roads.  The Ice Age Trail Alliance recognizes those who have walked all of the trail sections AND the road connections for the full length of the trail.  While there are suggested routes on the interactive hiker map, the road connections are non-specific.  In the Ice Age Trail Databook, page xi of the introduction clarifies the issue of connecting routes: “ Connecting routes are not technically considered to be Ice Age Trail; they are suggested routes to connect Ice Age Trail segments. Long-distance hikers may choose other routes that connect Ice Age Trail segments.”
