Volunteers Finish Rerouting Rib Lake Section of Ice Age Trail

Several dozen people grouped together in front of a work truck parked in a wooded area.

The Ice Age Trail Alliance completed rerouting the Rib Lake section of the trail with the help of volunteers and celebrated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

This section of trail had closed in 2008 when a private landowner no longer wished to have the trail crossing their property. For the past two years, Ice Age Trail Alliance and staff have been working to reroute that section of the trail.

According to WJFW, over 2,500 volunteers spent over 80,000 hours of time helping to reroute the trail.
