Ice Age National Scenic Trail

A mere 15,000 years ago, two-thirds of what is today Wisconsin lay under the grip of colossal ice sheets. The climate warmed and they began to melt back. In their wake, they left an impressive glacial landscape of fascinating landforms--moraines, drumlins, kames, kettles, eskers, outwash plains, erratics, meltwater channels, potholes, driftless (unglaciated) topography, glacial lake beds and islands, and more.

The Ice Age National Scenic Trail helps preserve this scenic beauty and provides a way to explore and appreciate this landscape, from expansive moraines to delicate marsh marigolds. It leads to places close to home as well as to remote parts of Wisconsin.
