Two new shirts in the IATA store!
Just in time for the giving season, two new Ice Age Trail shirts are available!
One features the simple-yet-bold yellow blaze that IAT hikers will recognize on or off the Trail. The second shows a trail, a hiker, and a calling: "go." Both are long-sleeved, preshrunk, 100% cotton tees.
Find them in our store today!

Gibraltar Rock now home to the Ice Age Trail
Phase One of the Gibraltar Rock trail construction project in Columbia County was a huge success Oct. 24-27. Nearly a mile of new Ice Age Trail now leads hikers past sheer rock faces to the top of Gibraltar Rock and its expansive, inspiring vistas. Visit the online trail map on the Lodi Valley Chapter page to see the new route and plan a hike.
Thank you to more than 350 volunteers who came out for the event and the donors who made it possible!
New permanently-protected Trail in the Chippewa Moraine!
Thanks to our hard-working Mobile Skills Crew volunteers, a half-mile of new Trail and a Dispersed Camping Area are now open! Both are located along scenic Picnic Lake at Camp Nawakwa, a Girl Scout Camp that offered IATA volunteers a peaceful Northwoods retreat for the week of Sept. 11-15. The Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes have completed a conservation easement that permanently protects the new Trail, and another mile is in the works. You can find the new section on the online trail map and on page 16 of the Ice Age Trail Atlas, and if you’re interested and able, catch up with the Chippewa Moraine Chapter to help out with the remaining work to be done.
Happy Trails and THANK YOU, volunteers!
