Trailblazers Day – Ice Age Trail Alliance’s Annual Conference

April 20 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

A group of young adults smile and pose together in front of a trailhead on an early spring day before a hike.

Join fellow young adults and outdoor enthusiasts for a day of hiking, socializing, and learning about the Ice Age Trail!

The Alliance’s Trailblazers* and staff members are hosting a day for young adults to experience the Alliance’s Annual Conference.

Get an exclusive guided hike from geologist Rudy Molinek at Devils’ Lake State Park. Learn about the unique geologic landforms of this area during a 3-mile morning hike.

Then, in the afternoon, join other Conference attendees and attend two sessions (of your choice). Topics range from a Trail signage workshop, a hiker forum with Thousand-Milers, learning about the many physical and mental benefits of hiking, and more!

Whether you are interested in finding a hiking buddy, volunteer opportunities, or gaining insider knowledge about the Ice Age Trail, you will leave this event with a newfound appreciation for Wisconsin’s landscapes.

NOTE: The Trailblazers Day is intended for people ages 18-35 years old.
