Over 1 million people annually enjoy the Wisconsin landscape while traveling the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. These visitors seek out unique places – the quaint coffee shop, historical point of interest, bed and breakfast, or gallery filled with local art – while traveling to and from each hike. The Ice Age Trail Alliance’s Exploring Wisconsin On Foot series is designed to be a one-stop shop for trail travelers.
In 2016, Ice Age Trail Alliance volunteers and staff created a set of regional itineraries based on the best places we visit after a hike, work day or while traveling to either. While we took the time to find the best spots for relaxation, education and enjoyment, some of the restaurant or lodging information may not be current. We look forward to offering updated versions, but in the meantime, please enjoy the information as it was intended, as a way to begin exploring the Ice Age Trail.
The Exploring Wisconsin On Foot series is divided into six regions across Wisconsin, highlighting some of the best Ice Age Trail segments, and broken into day hikes, overnight stays, and multiple-day adventures.
