Langlade County Chapter Hike
April 30 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
A spring hike on the Ice Age National Scenic Trail in Langlade County organized by the Langlade County Ice Age Trail Chapter is open to the public. Interested persons and groups should meet near the county forest historical marker at Veterans Memorial Park. 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 no one bring their pets, leashed or otherwise, on the group outing.
The spring hike will be a five-mile round trip from the county park on the Summit Moraine Segment of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail to Narrow-Neck Lake. The segment includes views of a large glacial lake which filled in with sediment since the massive ice sheet that covered two-thirds of the state melted away over 11,000 years ago.
Additional information on the hike and volunteer opportunities with the Langlade County Ice Age Trail Chapter can be obtained by mail to 622 First Avenue, Antigo or by calling 715-623-2645.
Future chapter hikes are scheduled this year for Saturdays, September 24th and October 8th.
