New East Twin River Section is Open!

The Mobile Skills Crew Event July 22 - 27 was a great success in making a 1.3 mile trek along the East Twin River northwest of Mishicot under comfprtable temperatures and virtually no skeeters. More than 120 people helped after months of corridor cutting by a dozen Lakeshore Chapter members and friends. You can park on the west side of the East Twin off Hillview Rd. and hike south to Rockledge. Take a break halfway on the split log bench overlooking the huge Thompson (silver) maple and the river. (If you were to park on Rockledge, be sure all your tires are off the road.) As you walk south, look uphill and downhill to get an idea of the many trees that were blown down a year ago and arduously cleared by the crews.

The Lakeshore Chapter was formed in 2007 when volunteers
from the Door/Kewaunee County, Manitowoc County and North
Kettle Moraine chapters of the Ice Age Trail Alliance decided to merge into one large chapter. Chapter members work to support the mission and goals of the IATA by promoting, planning, building and maintaining the Ice Age Trail.
