The Ice Age Trail is a designated National Scenic Trail that will extend some 1,200 miles entirely within the State of Wisconsin once completed.
Established by an Act of Congress in 1980, due in large part to the efforts of Congressman Henry Reuss, the IAT roughly follows the location of the terminal morraine of Wisconsin's last glacier 12,000 years ago. The IAT begins in Potawatomi State Park near Green Bay and ends in Interstate State Park on the Wi-Mn border.
This IAT segment is maintained entirely by volunteers of the Lodi Valley Chapter. Ludwig's Lookout is located on the Gibralter Segment about halfway between the Slack Road parking lot and the Merrimac Ferry lot. The trail between these two points was completed last fall, and is really a great segment of interesting trail and scenic overlook views. We have found it to be an excellent snowshoe hike during the winter months.
