We parked at the Robertson trail head, hiked the Lodi Marsh Segment, then hiked the Eastern Lodi Marsh Segment as far as Wisconsin State Highway 113. Unusual for a Monday in February, I had company on the trail. My husband hiked with me, and we ran into a dog walker. Lodi Marsh is an easy hike, although hikers should expect a few gentle slopes. Eastern Lodi Marsh is moderate due to hills. These well-blazed and nicely maintained trails prove easy to follow. They showcase the work of hard-working volunteers who make the Ice Age Trail the gem that it is.
