I am almost positive I have never talked about the Ice Age Trail we have in Wisconsin but it really is impressive.
Over 12,00 years ago, mountainous flows of glacial ice sculpted a unique and remarkably beautiful landscape across Wisconsin.
The Ice Age National Scenic Trail is a thousand-mile footpath — entirely within Wisconsin — that celebrates the legacy of the Ice Age. Diverse geological features along the Trail rank among the finest examples of continental glaciation anywhere in the world. Beyond any textbook, the Ice Age Trail lets us see and touch glacial history.

Even if you add all of our hiking up, we have only hiked a small portion of the trail over the years. One day we set out to hike a 4.5 mile loop in the Chippewa Moraine Ice Area because we heard there had been several bear there the day before. We weren’t lucky enough to see one but we enjoyed our hike, saw some nesting Great Blue Herons and explored the Interpretive Center.
While we missed seeing the bears we did enjoy watching all the hummingbirds coming to feed at the feeders near the interpretive center. So the day was not a total loss.
