Explore new Trail in Chippewa County

Make your way to Wisconsin’s Northwoods this fall to hike 1.5 miles of new Ice Age Trail on the Harwood Lakes Segment.

At a Mobile Skills Crew trail building event this fall, volunteers built new trail and upgraded over 3 miles of signage, continuing work from a fall 2013 project. The properties that host the new Trail are permanently protected by conservation easements held by the Alliance thanks to a partnership with Chippewa County and the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes.

Volunteers also extended the Trail by half a mile on the Chippewa River Segment, eliminating a section of road walk. The new Trail here is protected as well, thanks to a partnership with the Chippewa County Land Conservancy. The state Knowles Nelson Stewardship program and federal Land and Water Conservation Fund contributed to the protection of this property, where more new Trail is planned for the future.

View the online trail map to see the new Trail, or reference Map 16f in your Ice Age Trail Atlas.

THANK YOU to our volunteers, and happy hiking!
