The Whitewater Lake segment of the Ice Age trail is in the southern segment of the Kettle Moraine State Forest in Wisconsin, just north of Whitewater Lake. Wildlife, flora, and fauna all abound as the trail winds, climbs, and dips it's way through this natural setting.

Great trail, maintained well and thoroughly enjoyable. Only downside is there is no water for four miles. We took two dogs on the hottest day of the year and ran out of water at the vista. Only took us an hour and 20 min to get back from the whitewater vista. Lots of bugs so don't forget your spray!
