Langlade County Chapter


The Langlade County Chapter was recently notified that the host private landowner from  the Sherry/Oak Road Trailhead  to the county land north of his property has requested closure of the Kettlebowl stretch across his land due to a pending logging operation. A 2-3 month period is projected to complete the logging. Until the chapter is able to recommend possible options for access/parking of the segment’s north end, the entire Kettlebowl segment is closed. If any questions, please contact the chapter.

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 lake of many moods. Townline Lake which sets on the boundary between the Towns of Summit and Upham is a favorite photo location. It also is the scenic welcoming host to the Parrish Hills and Highland Lakes Trailheads of the Ice Age  Trail in Langlade County. The lake also hosts a county wayside complete with boat ramp, pit privy, scattered picnic facilities and a hidden stairway to the top of Basswood Hill. A former fire tower site which occupied a part of the hill offered views of the Parrish End Moraine to the south and the Harrison Hills to the northwest.)
