2018 begins a year-long celebration by the Ice Age Trail Alliance of its 60th anniversary, as well as, the 50th anniversary of the National Trail System. Both of these milestones are tremendous and speak to the perseverance of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail and those who care for it…including you.
This collage of documents, photos, and quotes honors our history, a fascinating mix of vision, conservation, and passion, involving both famous Wisconsin politicians and thousands of private citizens (hover over item of interest for more information). A more complete narrative of our history can be found here.
As we move to the future, the Alliance is taking more responsibility for permanently protecting shrinking landscapes, crafting world-class hiking experiences, and sharing the personal benefits of the Trail with new audiences. Creating, supporting and protecting the Ice Age Trail is a project of the people, now more than ever before.
