Ice Age Trail snowshoe hike

Once again, the Northwoods Chapter of the Ice Age Trail Alliance will be offering the public a guided snowshoe hike in the Underdown area of the Lincoln County Forest on Jan. 22, starting at 10:30 a.m. from the parking lot on Copper Lake Road.

Come and enjoy the wonderful landscape created by the Great Wisconsin Glacier about ten thousand years ago. A UW geology and geophysics professor described the Underdown as a “world class hummocky feature” of glacial topography. In simpler terms, the area has swamps, lakes, bogs and hills abundantly.

The snowshoe trail layout and design has been done by chapter member, Chris Schotz. The trail is well marked and packed. Hikers can choose between distances of one to four hours depending on your ability, experience and endurance. The trail is of moderate difficulty. Bring your snowshoes, drink and weather appropriate clothing.

Hot cider, hot chocolate, cookies and a blazing fire will await you after the hike. There is no charge for this event, but offerings are accepted.

For more information, contact Herb Schotz at 715-536-9392 or [email protected].
