Trail Building and Maintenance

The Ice Age Trail does not exist through its beauty and magic alone. It takes a dedicated work force of more than 2,000 volunteers from across the Upper Midwest to build and maintain this space for personal growth and adventure.

Building the Trail

As one of the world-renowned trail building organizations, the craft of sustainable trail layout, design and construction is at the forefront of our organizational efforts.

Connect with a local volunteer chapter or join us for a trailwide event to learn and be part of our trade.

Maintaining the Trail

In addition to building new segments of Ice Age Trail, we also work to maintain existing segments to provide the best trail experience possible. Volunteers from across the state collaborate to complete the day-to-day duties that create such an experience. To join the effort and make a positive difference in your community, get in touch with your local volunteer chapter.
