Hundreds of volunteers gathered together to expand the Ice Age National Scenic Trail, working with Ice Age Trail Alliance staff to add nearly three new miles of trail in Cross Plains.
This trailbuilding event was particularly noteworthy, being the last of the season and record-high volunteer support.
“It was great to end the 2023 Trailbuilding Season on such a high note!” said Dave Caliebe, Trail Program Manager for the Ice Age Trail Alliance. “This project had a record number of volunteers (268), service hours (4,776), and the best weather for working out in the field. As a result, we built the most tread of any project this year. And frankly, we couldn’t have done it without our volunteer crew leaders who capably managed newbies and seasoned trailbuilders alike.”
