When complete, the Ice Age Trail will be over 1200 miles long stretching across Wisconsin tracing the path of the last glacial advance. We are fortunate, here in the Chippewa Valley to have one of the most unique segments of the IAT right in our own backyard. The Chippewa Moraine unit NE of New Auburn offers some magnificent hiking opportunities in the form of the loop trail and the main E-W running main trail of the IAT. This 3 part series attempts to give you a taste of the loop trail, it's fantastic scenery and the geologic wonders of the ice age.
