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. The Moraine-Outwash Preserve section of the Green Bay Terminal Moraine purchased by the Ice Age Trail Alliance just east of Antigo. The piles of potato-sized rocks at the bottom of the photo are part of the glacial debris removed last fall while harvesting the fields of outwash edging the moraine. The dip in the profile of the tree line is caused by a 6 acre natural depression at the top of the moraine. The 44 miles of the Green Bay and Parrish terminal moraines in Langlade County offer a very distinctive landform especially in satellite photography of the state. Photo taken May 17, 2018.)
