Follow in the dinosaurs’ footsteps! The Ice Age National Scenic Trail (NST) is an approximately 1,200 mile route that traverses the state of Wisconsin, following the edge of the glacier that covered much of North America 15,000 years ago during the Ice Age. It is managed by the National Park Service, the State of Wisconsin, county forests, and private landowners. The Ice Age NST is open year round, though there may be some areas that are closed during hunting season. You can explore both long and short hiking trails, camp in some sections, cross country ski and snowshoe during the winter, or try your luck at ColdCaching, a little like geocaching, but this treasure hunt involves searching for natural features along the Ice Age Trail.
