Established in 1958, the Ice Age Trail Alliance (IATA) is a nonprofit volunteer- and member-based organization whose mission is to create, support and protect a thousand-mile footpath tracing Ice Age formations across Wisconsin. The IATA supports the hundreds of volunteers who build and maintain the Ice Age Trail, works to acquire a permanently protected corridor for the Trail and promotes the Trail through publications such as the Ice Age Trail Atlas and Ice Age Trail Companion Guide. More than 620 miles (and counting) of the Ice Age Trail are now open to public enjoyment thanks to the efforts of the IATA and its many partners, including the National Park Service and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.Cross Plains is home to some of the finest Ice Age National Scenic Trail in the state. Walkers can enjoy the Trail on either the Cross Plains or Table Bluff Segments.
