Ice Age Trailing

Updated 12 May 2020

Rough (as usual) ... will cleanup over the winter.  See also - My Collection of IAT Companion Maps/Guides

A log of Ice Age Trail Runs/Hikes.  The plan is to hike all trails and run connecting routes (pavement) over the next few years.  Outings often combine segments and/or connecting routes and may also contain bike-back info and directions as needed.  Information may be useful to others who may be attempting a similar approach.

In an attempt to simplify this page (and this project), I converted the Official 1000-Mile Spreadsheet to a Google doc Spreadsheet and published below - contains logs/maps/plans/artifacts by county.  I also posted my collection of 2011 IAT Companion Guides (PDF) - I print these as 2-sided booklets to carry on the trail or in my running belt.  Slightly outdated, but much lighter/easier than the current guidebook/atlas - also use these as my working segment checklist.
