One of only 11 National Scenic Trails in the country, the Ice Age Trail is a 1,000-mile footpath contained entirely within the state of Wisconsin. Ancient glaciers carved the path through rocky terrain, open prairies, and peaceful forests. Now, day hikers, backpackers, and outdoor lovers of all ages rely on the Ice Age Trail for a place to unplug, relax, and enjoy nature.
October is a great month for hiking because it is cooler and the fall colors are gorgeous. So grab your Girl Scouts and family members and join us for a great hiking challenge!
Set hikes for Girl Scouts and their families will be most Saturdays and Sundays in October in various locations including, but not limited to, Cornell, West Bend, Sturgeon Bay, St. Croix Falls, Two Rivers, Antigo, Rib Lake, and more!
Participants can choose which hikes they will participate in. Families are also welcome to explore other areas of the trail on their own. We'll register our group as a team, and those who hike a total of at least 10 miles and visit at least 1 trail community will earn the Mammoth Hike Challenge Patch and Certificate of Completion. Girls can also complete portions (or all) of the hiking and outdoor badges at their levels.
There will be a mandatory Zoom meeting to go over information and exact hike dates, times, and locations will be shared after attending that meeting.
Zoom meeting option 1: September 18 at 6 p.m. CDT
Zoom meeting option 2: September 21 at 7 p.m. CDT
The cost is just $5.00 per family!
Transportation to and from hike sites will be the responsibility of participants.
We will have a Facebook group for all participants as well which will have all dates and where pictures can be shared.
