Ice Age Trail Communities

The Ice Age National Scenic Trail traverses the entire state of Wisconsin, showcasing its natural beauty and glacial landscapes.

Along the way, the Ice Age Trail winds its way through hundreds of communities.

The Ice Age Trail Alliance Trail Communities are hiker destinations for Trail enthusiasts.

Ranging from small roadside stops to bustling metropolises, they are a vibrant aspect of the Ice Age Trail hiking experience.

The Ice Age Trail Community program is a symbiotic partnership between the Ice Age Trail Alliance and local Wisconsin communities. It aims to enhance awareness of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail, improve the quality of life for residents and visitors, and promote the natural and cultural heritage of Wisconsin along the Ice Age Trail.


By becoming an Ice Age Trail Community, they show their support for the Trail and to recognize Trail users as important players in their local economies.

Exploring our Trail Communities is an excellent way to dive deep into the Wisconsin experience of supper clubs and the tall tales told at the local watering holes.

Grab a coffee and a sweet treat from a local bakery and check out one-of-a-kind treasures only found in small-town shops!
