New Route from Woodland Dunes through Aurora Medical Center, Two Rivers, WI
The new route going south from Woodland Dunes crosses the railroad bed over the footbridges, comes out in the northeast corner of the Aurora Medical Office building parking lot, around Aurora's Healing Garden northeast to exit onto Taylor St., and joins the Mariner Trail along Hwy 42.
Work days are scheduled at various locations throughout the year. In addition to the group activities listed in our events calendar, the Lakeshore Chapter encourages individual participation through our hiker shuttle service, “Hall of Kamers” (NOTE: The correct phone number for the Hall of Kamers contact, Jim Powers, is 262-388-5143) hiking program, and the “ColdCache” geological treasure hunt program.
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.
