Ice Age Trail - Portage Canal

The Ice Age Trail begins in Portage at Pauquette Park and continues north through town to the Historic Indian Agency House. 12,000 to 15,000 years ago monstrous glaciers, over two miles thick crept out of Canada to cover much of WI. The Portage Canal Segment is maintained by volunteers from the Heritage Trail Chapter, Portage Canal Society, Boy Scouts and local schools.
