Follow the Ice Age Trail travels through Wisconsin's second largest cluster of kames, some standing 100ft above the trail. This is a very popular trail and for good reason. The environment between the kames is majestic. The addition of a separate loop trail provides day hikers an alternate route back to their car. The Ice Age Trail is a thousand-mile footpath highlighting the remnants left behind by glaciers during the last ice age over 12,000 years ago. Designated as a National Scenic Trail, the Ice Age trail follows the terminal moraine of the last glaciation throughout Wisconsin providing some of the world's best examples of glacial formations such as kettles, moraines, and drumlins.

Lots of loud construction at the start, otherwise it was a nice enough trail.

This was a great trail! The parking lot was full but we didn’t see anyone while we were hiking. It was just a great hike through some fields and then into the woods. Trail was pretty well marked. It was just a nice walk through the woods. We were bummed you could hear the traffic at all points on the trail though. It’s to be expected.

Great variety - wooded areas, wildflowers, marshy areas. Narrow at some points, but an overall easy hike. A little muddy in spots after a rain.

It’s a beautiful trail! Flat and easy to hike. Just be careful if you’re bringing your pups. Found 4 ticks on my dogs.
