Ice Age National Scenic Trail

More than 12,000 years ago, an immense flow of glacial ice sculpted a landscape of remarkable beauty across Wisconsin. As the glacier retreated, it left behind a variety of unique landscape features now considered among the world’s finest examples of how continental glaciation sculpts our planet. The Ice Age National Scenic Trail is a thousand-mile footpath that highlights these landscape features as it travels through some of the state’s most beautiful natural areas. The Trail is entirely within Wisconsin and is one of only eleven National Scenic Trails. 

  • Volunteers with the Ice Age Trail Alliance, the non-profit partner organization with a mission to create, support and protect the Trail, are available to help Girl Scouts engage with the Ice Age Trail through day hikes, backpacking trips, or service learning projects. 
  • Venture out on your own, or set up programming with an Ice Age Trail Alliance volunteer.  Perfect for many outdoor badges, including Trail Adventure, at every level.
