National Scenic Trails

Wisconsin is one of the only states to have two National Scenic Trails. The Ice Age Trail is located entirely within Wisconsin, winding for over 1,000 miles between Interstate and Potawatomi state parks. The North Country Trail travels through the northwest corner of the state for 200 miles. These premier hiking and backpacking trails pass through several state parks and forests.  


Snowshoeing is allowed almost anywhere in state park and forest properties. Hiking, snowshoeing and pets are not permitted on cross-country ski trails when the trails are snow-covered. Several properties offer snowshoe rentals during winter.
