The Langlade County Chapter has been actively involved with the Ice Age Trail since 1973. Activities include chapter hikes, community outreach and trail maintenance. Segment stewards are responsible for specific sections of the 50 plus miles of trail in the county. About 2/3 of the trail traverses public lands owned and administered by the county and state. Updated information for hike planning and current trail conditions is available from the coordinator or included below.

Above Photo: A major summer storm the evening of July 19th left a destructive path through Langlade County affecting lengthy portions of the Kettlebowl, Lumbercamp, Highland Lakes and Old Railroad Segments of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. Sections of Old Railroad rerouted last year by chapter volunteers and a MSC project crew were adversely affected. The segments were not closed as volunteers near and far cleared a discernible path through miles of turmoil from the day after to mid-October. Thanks and praise alone cannot fully recognize their challenging but noble and unselfish efforts.
