Wisconsin Ice Age Trail Maps, Guides & Tools

This page contains a random collection of links, maps, companion guides and such - used on my Ice Age Trail Hikes/Runs

Google Sheets Version of some collateral from IAT Website - a little more handy than MS Excel
  1. 2014 IAT Thousand Miler Spreadsheet is HERE.  Basically converted Thousand-Miler spreadsheet [MS Excel] that posts.  Please make a copy ('add to my drive') if you'd like to use.
  2. Corrections and Changes SINCE 2014 Guidebook - Spreadsheet.  gdocs version of spreadsheet with updates and corrections to the Trail [MS Excel]
  3. Camping options along IAT - Feb 2016 spreadsheet.  Gdocs version of camping options on and near the Trail [MS Excel] from IAT site.
  4. Interesting spreadsheet with all sorts of handy info by segment/area (food, lodging, water ...).  Converted Guidebook criteria sortable by segment [MS Excel] from IAT

IAT Companion Guide PDFs posted below are from 2011, but are very useful on the trail - nicer maps and more concise directions.  I print the companion guide map full-size/landscape, then create a 2-sided booklet with remainder of PDF (pages 2-end).  The booklet is easier to carry in running belt or pocket.   IAT Companion Guides ARE out of date and no longer available on official IAT site that I could see.  There are also PDF annotations and IAT corrections in the guides that are highlighted/easy to see on the computer screen, but difficult to pick-out when printed black&white, so be careful. 

I also use these booklets like score-cards as I clip off segments county by county.  I will try to note changes, observations or gotcha's as I use these to hike the trails.  You will probably still need to buy the current (2014) Atlas and Guide from the Ice Age Trail Alliance or the IAT Smartphone app if you want to hike a significant portion (not sure I agree with this!).

Work in Process:  Slowly working through maps (from east to west).  Will also attempt to note any changes I notice during planning/hiking using booklets based on 2011 Guides vs 2014 Guidebook/Atlas vs actual trail experiences
