An Ice Age Trail Community is a place where Ice Age Trail enthusiasts enjoy healthy walks, visit local businesses and take part in events. These communities work hand-in-hand with the Ice Age Trail Alliance to advance the Ice Age Trail, promote the qualities that make each place unique, and provide pathways to community health and well-being. Together, the Ice Age Trail Alliance and Trail Communities promote the unique qualities that make the Trail, and the community it travels through, a meaningful destination. Rib Lake is the 16th Ice Age Trail Community.
