The One Incredible Trail That Spans The Entire State of Wisconsin

Wisconsin’s Ice Age Trail is 1,200 miles of trail that roughly follows the terminal moraine – or edge – of the last glacier that covered the area. North America’s last glaciation is called the Wisconsin Glaciation, and our awesome state has tons of features that can be attributed to those glaciers. This stunning trail travels all over Wisconsin. It’s run by the National Park Service, but maintained by volunteers. There are segments of the trail all over that connect to form one of the most amazing trail systems anywhere in the country.
