As the Ice Age Trail Alliance kicks off the third annual Mammoth Hike Challenge during the month of October, join Walworth Jefferson County Chapter Volunteer Gary Hitchcock for an introductory presentation to the Ice Age National Scenic Trail.
One of only 11 National Scenic Trails in the country, Wisconsin is blessed with a 1,200 mile long footpath that winds through our glacial landscape. From Potawatomi State Park in Door County to Interstate Park along the St. Croix River in St. Croix Falls, Polk County, several of the Ice Age Trail’s best miles are located right here in the Kettle Moraine State Forest, near Whitewater.
We’ll highlight tips and tricks for day hiking and backpacking, along with plenty of resources to get you started. You’ll leave will maps and information suited to scratch your hiking itch. And get ready for the Mammoth Hike Challenge taking place the entire month of October.
- Date: Tuesday, September 27

This is an in-person presentation at the Irvin L. Young Memorial Library, 431 W Center Street, Whitewater, WI 53190.
