Ice Age Trail Alliance – Walworth/Jefferson County Chapter Hiker Resource
Explore over 25 miles of maintained trails
through the Kettle Moraine State Forest Southern Unit and Clover Valley Habitat Area
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. These glacial remnants are 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.
The Ice Age Trail is marked with yellow rectangular blazes. Dogs must be under control and leashed at all times. Leave no trace.
Walworth/Jefferson County Chapter
Since 1993, the Walworth/Jefferson County Chapter has reached out to residents of Walworth and Jefferson Counties and other nearby communities in southeast Wisconsin and northern Illinois to connect people to the Ice Age Trail.
