The Hike:

Please join us as we hike the Eagle Segment of the Ice Age Trail. This prairie segment is in the bed of the former Glacial Lake Scuppernong. The trail segment also weaves through the outcroppings of Brady’s Rocks, where a unique fern population is found growing out of cracks in the dolomite bedrock.

Details:

We will shuttle cars to the small parking lot at the Eagle Segment’s southern trailhead where we will begin our hike. We will hike north and east ~4 miles to the Hwy 67 Trailhead. Dogs are welcome but must be leashed and cleaned up after. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes. Bring water for the hike.

Note: We do not cancel hikes ahead of time due to weather predictions. If that morning we have a deluge, or lightning, Mark will send out an email canceling…if you are not sure, stay home.

Location:

We will meet at the Hwy 67 Trailhead south of Highway Z. We will leave some cars there and drive to the small parking (see above link) area along Hwy N near Eagle, Wisconsin where we will begin our hike.

Contact Information:

Dick Haas and Jeff Romagna help Mark Miner organize these hikes. Email comments or questions to Mark, your hike leader, and he will answer them for you.
