Experience the Ice Age Trail: trace the edge of an ancient glacier.

The Ice Age Trail is a historic adventure of almost 1200 miles (1930 km) that traces the edge of the huge glacier that once covered North America. The landscape that its retreating mass carved in the state of Wisconsin is a spectacular example of the mark that natural forces, such as continental glaciation, can leave on our planet. The Ice Age Trail is one of the country's National Scenic Trails, and is a trek across the state of Wisconsin that travels through rolling green hills, river valleys, and wide lakes; all reminders of a planetary era long past. Its path stretches from the Interstate State Park along the St. Croix River to Potawatomi State Park near Sturgeon Bay. Traveling through some of the state’s most beautiful natural areas, the trail is perfect for day-hiking, thru-hiking, snowshoeing, and backpacking adventures.

Trusted Trail Data

All of the data for our routes is collected by trusted individuals and partners, and is kept meticulously up to date. The track of each trail includes side trails and alternate routes, along with key waypoints. Our apps also offer comprehensive town guides, helping you resupply and access other services quickly.

Built for Community

Stay informed about trail conditions ahead by reading other hikers’ waypoint comments, and let other hikers know about your experience by leaving your own comments. Keep your friends and family up to date by sharing your current location from a Google Maps link sent via email or text message.

Offline Maps

Our variety of offline map sets, optionally downloaded as part of the initial setup and accessible offline afterwards, can give you extra quality information such as topographic lines with elevation values and satellite imagery.

Detailed Waypoints

Waypoints are plotted on a map and elevation profile, and each includes its own detail page with photos and descriptions. Water waypoints offer the most up-to-date water information, gathered from trusted sources and checked by other users.

Tailored to You

Plan your day by letting the app calculate the distance to the next campsite, water source, or other waypoint. Not every hike is the same, and we know that. Create your own custom routes using our route builder tool.
