Fall Color Hike and Trail Grand Opening

Join the Northwoods Chapter of the Ice Age Trail Alliance for a hike through autumn leaves on a newly constructed trail.  Explore the 2.5 mile Marsh Loop, or continue over the ice marginal ridge for a 5.1 mile journey to the brink of the Prairie Dells gorge.  A newly created map to 42 features on Lincoln County hiking trails will be available to guide you past the historic and natural features in your path.

Meet for a guided hike at 10AM on October 1st.  From Highway 17 find Heinemann Road just south of Bloomville and continue approximately 2.5 miles west to the Merrill Memorial Forest.  Others approaching from Merrill may take County K for 6 miles north to County R which winds east to the trailhead.

Bring a snack and water for the trail.  The hike is open to the public at no cost.  A free will donation for the local chapter is welcome.  For more information contact Chris Schotz at 715-351-0107.

This trail will also host the Wisconsin Endurance Mountain Bike Series Championship on October 8th.  This event is another trail fundraiser, and volunteers are always appreciated.
