18 Wisconsin Hikes Along The Ice Age Trail That Are Picture Perfect In The Winter

Did you know that the most recent North American advance of the North American ice sheet is known as the Wisconsin Episode?

So much of our terrain was determined by the glaciers that moved through our land and made changes along the way. The 1,100-mile Ice Age National Scenic Trail is one of just a handful of nationally recognized trails in the country and it gives us the incredible opportunity to see and enjoy protected areas of our state that have been thousands of years in the making.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
