Holy Hill Segment,

What better way to warm the heart than with a winter work party on ice? We are taking advantage of Jack Frost’s gift to begin work on a 574-foot-long boardwalk by drilling holes and setting posts in frozen wetland. STAY TUNED for updates and additional projects to be announced. Postponed

Early spring is a great time to converse with Sandhill cranes and gear up for summer trail work. There will be plenty of brush to clear, chainsaw work and herbicide application to reveal this driftless story in stone. Thursday night lodging at private residences is available for those interested in volunteering for both days of the event – details will be available soon.  Project Area Map Photos

After crafting a hard-won half-mile in 2018 and 1.7 miles in 2017, we look to create 2 miles of new Trail on the Ringle Segment in 2019.
