Ice Age Trail Alliance

Walworth / Jefferson County Chapter Hiker Resource

Hike along side history on the Ice Age Trail leading to some deeply historical sites of Whitewater’s past. Pack your bag with everything you’ll need, strap on your comfiest shoes, and prepare for a day of peace and quiet with nature. Whether hiking alone or with a crew, you’ll enjoy some scenic views with the opportunity to simply get away from it all.
