*** COVID-19 Update ***

Getting outdoors and hiking is one of the few activities that we can continue to do safely during the COVID-19 outbreak, but due to recent world events, following social distancing guidelines, and the closure of camping at state parks, Badger Trails has cancelled the Glacial Trail Hike in 2020. Thank you for supporting Badger Trails by attending this event for the last 60 years and we look forward to seeing you at next year's event!

Hike, backpack and camp In Wisconsin’s beautiful Kettle Moraine State Forrest along the Ice Age Trail. This event can be backpacked over two to three days, or individually day hiked on any of the days. The hikes range from 5 to 10 miles per day.

Backpackers start the event with a 4 mile hike on Friday evening and spend Friday night at Greenbush Group Camp Ground. There is a 10 mile hike from Greenbush to Long Lake State Park Saturday. Campsites are provided at Long Lake State Park or Greenbush Group Camp on Saturday night and participants begin the final 10 mile hike from Long Lake State Park to Mauthe Lake State Park on Sunday. Throughout the event, Badger Trails provides periodic checkpoints, manned road crossings and shuttle services. Although we encourage participants to take part in the entire event, we also accommodate those who are interested in camping and hiking part of the trail or simply coming to day hike. The entire hike is a moderately difficult trail approximately 24 miles in length, and is  a perfect event for those that want to practice or teach backpacking skills. If you run into any issues on the trail during your hike, Badger Trails will be there to assist you and help you get back to your campsite. Camping reservations are limited for this event and the event sells out early. Make your reservations early so ensure your participation at this years event.
