Langlade County 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.

Dependent on ground water levels, the chain of shallow glacial ponds in the state wildlife area varies from “bone dry” to being full as a water source for hikers on the 5 mile stretch of the Lumbercamp segment between County S and County A.
