“Secret” Places to Hike in Manitowoc County

While there are a number of places to hike in Manitowoc County, Secret Manitowoc County Trails_2015 that don’t get much use.


The Lakeshore Chapter was formed in 2007, when volunteers from Door, Kewaunee and Manitowoc counties and the North Kettle Moraine area merged into one chapter. Our chapter members work to support the mission and goals of the Ice Age Trail Alliance by promoting, planning, building and maintaining the Ice Age Trail from Fond du Lac County to the Eastern Terminus in Sturgeon Bay.
