Lakeshore Chapter

Building 100′ of Boardwalk Friday, May 15, & Saturday, May 16, 2015

We need to build a boardwalk near Rockledge Rd. northwest of Mishicot on our new trail to cover seepage from the sedge field upslope of the trail. We have most of the materials stored in a barn on the outskirts of Two Rivers and hope to move the precut lumber and parts on Thursday, May 14. We need about 10 more people to help on those days. A FREE LUNCH will be provided, thanks to the generosity of Chapter members. We will work from 9 to 4 each day. Will you help us? Reservations are necessary so that we don’t get too many people. (It’s no fun to stand around with nothing to do.) If you can help or have questions, contact Dan Mitchell, [email protected] or call me at 920-241-0207.

History

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.

If you notice any problems with the trails in the Lakeshore Chapter area (fallen trees, poor signage, etc.), please call the Ice Age Trail Alliance at 800-227-0046. We will fix the problem!

Get Involved on the Trail

We schedule work days at various locations throughout the year. In addition to the group activities listed in our events calendar, we encourage people to get out onto the Trail through our hiker shuttle service [PDF], Hall of Kamers [PDF] hiking award program, and the ColdCaching geological treasure hunt program.

Note: the correct phone number for the Hall of Kamers contact, Jim Powers, is 262-388-5143.

“Secret” Places to Hike in Manitowoc County

While there are a number of places to hike in Manitowoc County, here are seven places [PDF] that don’t get much use.
