Northwoods Chapter of the Ice Age Trail Alliance Snowshoe Hike

January 23, 2016
10:00 A.M.

The Northwoods Chapter of the Ice Age Trail Alliance will host  a
guided snowshoe hike in the Underdown area of the Lincoln County Forest on Saturday,  January 23, 2015 starting at 10:00 A.M.   Meet at the  Underdown Parking Lot parking lot on Copper Lake Road.

Come and enjoy the wonderful landscape created by the Great Wisconsin Glacier about ten
thousand years ago.  A UW geology and geophysics professor described the Underdown as a
“world class hummocky feature” of glacial topography.  In simpler terms, the area has swamps,
lakes, bogs and hills abundantly.

The snowshoe trail layout and design has been done by chapter member, Chris Schotz. The trail
is well marked and packed.  Hikers can chose between distances of one to four hours depending
on your ability, experience and endurance.  The trail is  moderately difficulty. Bring your
snowshoes, drink and weather appropriate clothing.

Hot cider, hot chocolate, cookies and a blazing fire will await you after the hike.  There is no charge for this event, though donations will be accepted.
