The Ice Age Trail is one of eleven national scenic trails in the US, winding its way through Wisconsin for over 1,000 miles. The story of the trail is one of geological discovery, patience, good old fashioned elbow grease, and perseverance.
In this special feature on the Perpetual Notion Machine, reporter and host Catherine Garvens gives us a condensed history of how the trail came to be. She talks to the people working to expand the trail and conserve the land that surrounds it, and picks up some natural history along the way. Take a listen, and learn more about one of Wisconsin’s best outdoor features.
