Baraboo Hills Chapter
The Baraboo Hills Chapter works to create, support and protect
the Ice Age Trail in Sauk County. The chapter promotes the use
of the Trail for education and recreation.

Chapter Trail Maintainers
We are looking for adopt-a-trail volunteers to help with trail from South Lake Dr. to the East Bluff, Marsh Road to Marsh Road and Roznos Meadow. Trail adopters just need to hike their section once or twice a month and keep the trail clear of brambles and brush. Contact Allan Henn to adopt a section of trail, or to ask for more information. Come to one of our maintenance events (see below) and you can pick up your folding saw and loppers.
Chapter meetings are usually every other month. This is subject to change, so for more details and to view other chapter and Ice Age Trail Alliance events visit our online events calendar.
Chapter Hiking Award Program
Whether you’re an avid hiker looking for a new challenge or an occasional trekker looking for inspiration to get out more often, a new hiking program is now available that may be just the thing for you! The Lodi Valley and Baraboo Hills chapters of the Ice Age Trail Alliance have partnered to create the “Glacial Drifters” hiking award program. This project is funded in part by a Healthy Life Initiative Grant from the Sauk Prairie Memorial Hospital Foundation. Participants in the program will earn an award for hiking all of the approximately 50 miles of the Ice Age Trail within these two chapters’ areas, with the hiking to be done on each individual’s own timetable. Registered participants will be sent maps and information about each of the various segments along with a hiking log for tracking progress. To receive more information about the Glacial Drifters hiking award program, download the program brochure and contact Bob Lange (608-356-2427, email@example.com) or Patti Herman (608-592-5666, firstname.lastname@example.org).
