The Ice Age Trail is built and beautifully maintained by volunteers. A big thank you to the many volunteers who maintain and build the sections of trail we all very much love and enjoy.

Mild in temperature as far as Wisconsin winters go, the winter of 2014-2015 proved fantastic for hiking. In the southern half of the state, the snow never got especially deep. I hiked the entire winter in waterproof sneakers and gaiters. Few days dipped below 0°F (-18°C).

|A great year for eagle spotting.|
Cheers to a year of outdoorsy fun. Looking forward to more in 2016! Don't forget, today's the day for your first day hike. Let's bundle up and kick-off the new year right!
