The Baraboo Hills Chapter works to create, support and protect the Ice Age Trail in Sauk County. We promote the use of the Trail for education and recreation.

Trail Maintenance and Meetings:
Volunteer work days occur throughout the spring, summer, and autumn on various portions of the trail. These events are a great way to see and get to know the trail while keeping it in great shape for all users. Usual activities include clearing of brush, building and maintaining tread, and occasional sawing or chainsaw work. No experience is necessary, and these are great opportunities to learn about trail construction and to prepare for more intense Mobile Skills Crew (MSC) events throughout Wisconsin. Activities are coordinated by the Trail Maintenance Coordinator, Allan Henn. If desired, individuals or groups can also choose to adopt a segment of the trail.
In addition to gathering for trail maintenance, chapter meetings are generally held on Saturday mornings, once per month. For more details, contact the chapter or our Facebook page. Events will also be posted to the IATA events calendar (search Baraboo Hills Chapter).
Glacial Drifters Hiking Award Program:
We’ve partnered with the Lodi Valley Chapter to create the Glacial Drifters hiking award program. This project was originally funded in part by a Healthy Life Initiative Grant from the Sauk Prairie Memorial Hospital Foundation. Participants in the program will earn an award for hiking the whole Ice Age Trail within these two chapters’ areas, about 50 miles.
Registered participants will receive maps and information about each of the various segments, along with a hiking log for tracking progress.
