Notes on Route Changes and Current Conditions

The map below shows all official Ice Age National Scenic Trail segments (blue lines; actual trail is marked with yellow blazes) and unofficial connecting routes (green lines; actual routes are unmarked). Notes (if any) on route changes and current conditions are indicated by “push pins” on the map; details for each push pin are shown below the map.

The data shown on this map is for general information purposes only. The Ice Age Trail Alliance gives no warranty, expressed or implied, as to the accuracy, reliability, or completeness of these data. It is strongly recommended that only the Ice Age Trail Atlas and Ice Age Trail Companion Guide 2011 be used as official resources for information about the Trail.

As the Ice Age Trail evolves toward completion its route changes over time as volunteers build new sections and other sections are rerouted or closed. Weather and activities such as hunting and land management (e.g., logging) can also alter Trail navigation and access. Pushpins on the map above and detailed comments below (if any) are intended to keep Ice Age Trail users up to date on current Trail conditions and route changes (compared with the Ice Age Trail Atlas and Ice Age Trail Companion Guide 2011).

Walworth / Jefferson County:Reroute (permanent)

Blackhawk Segment Permanent Reroute

effective date: Jun 05, 2008

Ice Age Trail Atlas Map 78f; Ice Age Trail Companion Guide p. 99

Just north of the Hwy 12 trailhead for the Blackhawk Segment, a permanent reroute is complete and marked with yellow blazes. The Trail was rerouted to avoid an underwater boardwalk (Kangaroo Walk). The reroute has a short overlap with a horse trail where we share a bridge, but thanks to the new reroute, the overlap is shorter than it was previously.

Walworth / Jefferson County:Conditions Note

Clover Valley Segment Conditions Note

effective date: Apr 26, 2013

Ice Age Trail Atlas Map 77f; Ice Age Trail Companion Guide p. 107

During wet times of the year some of the trail is soggy but hikeable. There often is a wet spot about half way through that can be walked around on a berm adjacent to the trail. Typical for this section of trail during the spring, these trail conditions may persist into the summer and fall depending on weather conditions. For a short time during ground thaw, heavy snow melt and spring rains may produce flood water on the trail near the bridge across Spring Brook.

If you take a hike on the Ice Age Trail, please let us know how it went. Trail user reports are key to our ability to keep the Ice Age Trail well-maintained and user-friendly. If you notice something during your hike that you think should be included on this page, please let us know by contacting the Ice Age Trail Alliance main office (800-227-0046, info@iceagetrail.org). As you hike, please keep in mind that the Ice Age Trail is largely built and maintained by volunteers. We can always use your help!
