Langlade County Chapter Hike

October 8, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


A fall color hike on a section of the Langlade County is being offered to the public this month. Participants are encouraged to wear suitable clothing and bring a lunch or snacks. Hikers can individually hike the Ice Age Trail with dogs on leash but the chapter requests that participants bring their pets, leashed or otherwise, on the group outing.

Besides getting out to really enjoy the fall colors, another feature of the October hike will be an opportunity for participants to earn a special patch observing 50 years of Ice Age Trail activity in Langlade County. To earn the patch, persons must hike 2 of the 3 local outings held last month, October 8th and one tentatively set for Saturday, April 29, 2023.

The colorful October chapter outing will be a 5-mile out and back hike of the Summit Moraine Segment of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. The segment was formerly known as the Old Railroad Segment which largely followed the historic grade which connected the mainline at Koepenick to Pearson and Camp 23 during the logging era.

The segment was rerouted in 2018 using sections of the former trail with new stretches of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail between County Highways A and B, including Veterans Memorial Park. Yet a very short stretch of the historic rail grade remains a part of the Ice Age Trail at Spychalla Lodge.
