Ice Age Trail Backpacking



Ice Age Trail Backpacking Trek:  Take advantage of an outstanding hiking trail right in Ma-Ka-Ja-Wan’s backyard.  In Langlade and Lincoln Counties, long segments of the Ice Age Trail wind through a region full of lakes and bogs formed by the melting of the last glacier.  Amid the northern forest of spruce, fir, maple and birch, the trail follows the glacier’s terminal moraine as it winds through the woods just a few miles from camp.  Treks can be customized from 3 to 5 days.  Our standard trek is through a 28.5 mile section which will be traversed over 4 days.  This trek is an excellent introduction to backpacking: with “un-designated”, primitive back country camping.  Leave No Trace skills are an integral part of this trek.  Consult with the High Adventure Staff to plan this excellent “close in” hiking experience.

Group sizes:  Up to 11 from your unit, plus our guide to total 12.  Smaller groups have more options for campsites.  Two groups from your unit can hike together during the day.
