Go for a Hike

The National Park Service maintains seven hiking trails along the Riverway. A variety of trails exist in nearby state parks and forests. The western terminus of the Ice Age trail www.nps.gov/iatr is within Wisconsin Interstate Park. Many of the trails can be used in all seasons for hiking, snow shoeing or X-country skiing. As you hike the trails look all around to enjoy the scenery and wildlife. All of the seven park trails are featured on this hiking brochure. Additional site-specific maps are available for the Sandrock Cliffs trail and the Trego Nature Trail.
