The Walworth/Jefferson County Chapter of the Ice Age Trail Alliance is known for its free weekly hikes — one at 4 PM on Tuesdays, and two (one short and one long) at 10:30 AM on Wednesdays.
These hikes range in length from 2.8 miles on Tuesdays — to three and a half or six or seven miles on Wednesdays. They take place year around, except during thunderstorms, tornadoes, or actual blizzards — and cover most of the trails in the Southern Kettle Moraine at one time or another. Hikers meet at the Highway 12 IAT parking area then generally carpool to the location of the day’s hike, determined with input from the participants.
