Ice Age Trail Alliance

Our Mission

The mission of the Ice Age Trail Alliance is to create, support and protect a thousand-mile footpath tracing Ice Age formations across Wisconsin — the Ice Age National Scenic Trail.

Our Vision

In collaboration with our many partners, we envision a premier, continuous, permanently protected Ice Age National Scenic Trail. Coursing through Wisconsin, the Trail is a place where all people can enjoy and embrace the unique natural landscapes and cultural histories of Wisconsin, while finding physical and mental renewal in a peaceful setting and an enduring spiritual connection to the land.
