The Timberland Wilderness Segment of the Ice Age Trail will be the featured section for this year’s fall hike. This segment is in the western most portion of the Ice Age Trail in
accessed only by Lincoln County Tower Road. This “wilderness” is characterized by mature,
mixed hardwood trees; maple, oaks and hickory.
There are several unusual glacial features traversed by the trail, one
being the ice-walled-lake plain. This
will be a good chance to test your tree identification skills.
The trail is on firm, dry ground and should be considered only moderately difficult following rolling terrain. Total distance to be hiked is about 3 miles.
Bring a lunch to eat on the trail.
We will car pool from the parking lot near Club 64 (on Hwy 64) on the west end of Merrill on Saturday October 5th at 9:00 A.M.
