The Ice Age National Scenic Trail is one of only eleven national scenic trails in the U.S. The local Chippewa Moraine segment is one part of this national trail that follows th e terminal moraine of the last glacier for over 1000 miles from the St. Croix River to the shores of Green Bay. Walkers may register anytime between 9 and 11 a.m. at the Obey Interpretive Center at the Chippewa Moraine, located 7 miles east of New Auburn on County Hwy. M, (1.9 miles east of Hwy. 40).
