Plans for 2017, which include several opportunities for new trails, e.g., Mishicot Public School trail; signing the city of Algoma, Reroute/repair Schuette Park, Manitowoc; working in July at the State Annual Farm Days in Kewaunee as an IATA fund raiser; and this spring and this fall at Walla Hi County Park in southwest Manitowoc County, four miles east of Kiel from Mueller Rd. into the park and out to the west to Lax Chapel Rd.
Get Involved on the Trail
We schedule work days at various locations throughout the year. In addition to the group activities, we encourage people to get out onto the Trail:

“Secret” Places to Hike in Manitowoc County
While there are a number of places to hike in Manitowoc County, Secret Manitowoc County Trails_2015 that don’t get much use.
Park Rd. Entry to Point Beach State Forest Shoreline 11/3/16
The swale that hikers must cross to get to the beach has been flooding periodically the last couple of years. We erected a 4×4 with blazes and arrows along the west edge of the swale about a hundred yards north. Walk along the west edge of the swale, not along the top of the sensitive dune. At the 4×4, hikers can hop onto a dry area and then onto the beach to proceed north (and Vice versa).
The Lakeshore Chapter was formed in 2007, when volunteers from Door, Kewaunee and Manitowoc counties and the North Kettle Moraine area merged into one chapter. Our chapter members work to support the mission and goals of the Ice Age Trail Alliance by promoting, planning, building and maintaining the Ice Age Trail from Fond du Lac County to the Eastern Terminus in Sturgeon Bay.
