The Northwoods Chapter, Ice Age Trail Alliance will be conducting their Spring Wildflower Hike Saturday, May 24. The adventure will be in the Camp 27 Segment of the Ice Age Trail. This is one of the wildest sections of the entire 1,000 miles of the trail. In addition to the usual spring flora, hikers may see evidence of bobcats, timber wolf, fisher, deer and bear.
The total hike will be about three miles on woodland trails, and considered moderately easy. The tread could be wet in a few spots. Hikers need to dress for the weather as it is a rain or shine event. Bring a lunch to eat on the trail. This hike is open to the public and there is no cost. A free will donation for the local Chapter is welcome.
A car pool is available from Club 64 Parking Lot on Hwy. 64 on the West side of Merrill at 9:30 a.m. Hikers can choose to meet at the hike start at 10 a.m. Take Hwy. 64 west of Merrill to Cty. E. Follow E to Conservation Ave. Follow the Ice Age Trail event signs.
