Summer Solstice Hike – Indianhead Chapter
June 19, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
We will be heading out on the southern portion of the Gandy Dancer State Trail/Ice Age National Scenic Trail for an out-and-back morning hike of approximately 7- 7.5 miles total. Surfaced in 1995 with crushed limestone, this multi-use trail provides a smooth, hard surface for bicyclists and hikers. Built on a former railroad corridor, the trail is named for the work crews who laid the railroad tracks. The crews used tools made by the Gandy Tool Company of Chicago and were known to work by keeping their voices, feet and tools in harmony, leading them to be called “Gandy Dancers”.
Before returning on the trail, we will take a breakfast/lunch break at Cafe Wren in Luck, so please plan accordingly. Everyone is welcome!
NOTE: If you would like a shuttle back to the parking lot from Cafe Wren, please let Barb Ceder know before the day of the hike.
LOCATION: We will meet at the Ice Age Trail Trade River Trailhead located at 2933-2925 150th Street in Frederic, about 1/2 mile east of Highway 35 and north of 290th Avenue. Click here for driving directions. Watch for yellow Ice Age Trail Event signs.
WHAT TO BRING: Please wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Bring insect repellent, sunscreen, water and money for lunch. Don’t forget your camera!
