Event Information


Ice Age Trail Building near Cross Plains

Saturday, March 16th, 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.

We will be cutting and burning invasive brush to prepare the way for new tread construction to follow in the warmer months. We’ll use fire, handsaws, loppers and herbicide. You’ll learn from local experts and have a hand in revealing a heretofore unseen story of continental proportions that will, with your help, soon be a new signature section of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail.
All Abilities and Talents Welcome

Hands-on training provided by certified volunteer crew leaders.

In addition to signing up on the Hoofer Outing Club website, please register on the Ice Age Trail website

We will meet at the Park Street Circle(the end of Park Street) next to the Memorial Union.

If you have questions, please email me or call me 608-873-2016

What to Bring

    Bring snowshoes and ice cleats (Micro Spikes, Yak Traks, etc.) for secure footing.
    Have appropriate ‘near-fire’ clothing (no synthetics - leave that fancy coat at home).
    Bring clothing to dress in layers for warmth and to keep dry.
    A daypack, leather gloves, (the Hoofer Outing Club will supply the gloves) water bottle(s) and a thermos of warm beverage is hard to     beat.
