Superior Lobe Chapter

The Superior Lobe Chapter was formed in 2001. We maintain approximately 50 miles of Ice Age Trail in Rusk, Barron, Washburn and Burnett counties.
Our chapter meets 6:30-8:00 p.m. monthly the third Tuesday at the 2 E Marshall St. Rice Lake Public Library in Rice Lake We also sponsor seasonal hikes, including snowshoe hikes, bird walks and the Fall Adventure Weekend.  Go to the calendar for details on upcoming events. Check out our Facebook Page : Ice Age Trail Alliance-Superior Lobe Chapter. We would invite you to share  photos of your Superior Lobe Chapter hikes.

Our chapter offers the Superior Lobetrotter award to hikers who register and complete all 48 miles of Ice Age Trail from CTH-F in Rusk County to Lake 32 Rd. in Burnett County. For more information on becoming a Superior Lobetrotter, contact Letitia Crisler at or call 651-485-1170

We are going to have to close the Grassy lake segment from Pershing to Lehmann Lake Rd because of the logging. Trail is tore up and not many blazes left. Hikers should road walk on Pershing east to Lehman lake rd, and go north to Shingle Camp and continue their hike

The Superior Lobe Chapter of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail will host a hike to the Felsenmeer (a sea of rocks) Canyon and the Devil’s Kettle in the Blue Hills on Saturday, October 14th. The hike will be led by Tim McRaith, chapter leader and teacher at WITC. Hikers should wear sensible footwear and meet at the corner of Hwy O and W near the former Blue Hills Inn by 9:00 AM. We will park up the road from there at the county land trail head and hike 1.5 miles down to the Felsenmeer – then 1.5 miles right back up. After that, we can stop at the Devils Kettle, which is nearby on HWY W.  Depending how much we poke around, you should be on your way again between noon and one.

Please RSVP to Tim at 715-651-2517 or email for more information, to plan for numbers, or in case of inclement weather.

IF SO . . . YOU will want to participate in the DNR Recreational Opportunities Analysis so that there are enough places to do your favorite thing.

Public input will influence government decisions that may affect the Ice Age Trail and other non-motorized trails, for better or worse, far in the future.

Attending an OPEN HOUSE is the best way to be heard:

Meetings will be held between 4PM and 7PM. DNR staff will provide a brief overview at each meeting both at 4:30 and 6PM.
