Month Long Event (october)


The Ice Age National Scenic Trail is a thousand-mile footpath through some of Wisconsin’s most beautiful natural areas. It is one of only eleven National Scenic Trails, and 2020 marks the 40th anniversary of the trail’s designation as such.


Hike 40 miles on the Ice Age Trail AND visit three trail communities (like Two Rivers!) throughout October to earn a limited-edition patch and certificate.


Hike, walk, run, or backpack and log your miles over days, weekends, weeks–or take one big adventure!


Sign up as an individual, a couple, a family or even a team. You’ll receive a special Mammoth Hike Challenge itinerary highlighting fall colors, Ice Age Trail communities, and local businesses to support along the way.


The City of Two Rivers segment is an urban one; it begins at the Columbus and 12th Street intersection, crosses the 17th Street bridge and travels along Neshotah Beach. The Dunes segment of the trail is a 2.7 mile footpath through Woodland Dunes. This trail features a surprising mix of natural sights: boardwalks through forested wetlands, deep old growth cedar forests, open prairies, and dense hardwood forest. The Point Beach State Forest has a five-mile segment that runs north to south through the forest.
