A Mammoth Invitation to Reimagine

Ice Age National Scenic Trail, Ice Age Trail Alliance, Mobile Skills Crew 2017

“The newly re-routed Ice Age Trail segment is designed to be an attractive walk. This initial 1.5 miles of trail will meander across rolling terrain filled with big oaks. These old trees create a dramatic over-story and help highlight impressive glacial features like large erratics and boulder fields,” stated Dave Caliebe, Trail Program Specialist.

Life’s transformative events might stew and brew for years until one day…poof; we turn around and find our very being has expanded in ways we could barely imagine.

The reimagining of the Ringle Segment is one such transformative event for the Ice Age Trail.  Here, spring peepers chorus, wolves roam, trillium bloom, and rock, as all farmers, geologists, and trail builders know, begets rock.

For those who embrace bringing landscape stories to life, Ringle is a legacy event.

What We’re Doing

We’re moving forward with the next step in a transformational Trail re-route. Corridor clearing in April set us on solid footing, ready to stretch mind, body and soul to craft an imaginative experience across rolling, stone studded, forested terrain.

All Ages and Abilities are Welcome

As with all Mobile Skills Crew events, no experience is necessary and there’s a role for volunteers of all ages and abilities…bring the family! Your contribution is welcome for any amount of time you can give. Training is provided by certified volunteer crew leaders, and all participants get free meals and (for those working with us for multiple days) a free place to pitch a tent.


To help us plan this event with your needs in mind, please register by Sunday, May 14th.


If you’re in need of a ride or have an extra seat or two in your car, please head to our Facebook page and post a note.


Please contact Brad Crary (262-370-2995, brad@iceagetrail.org) or the IATA office (800-227-0046).

We hope to see you soon!

Happy Trails,
