A late summer hike on the Ice Age National Scenic Trail in Langlade County will take place Saturday, Sept. 6. The hike organized by the Langlade County Ice Age Trail Chapter is open to the public.

Interested persons should meet 9 a.m. in front of the Langlade County Forestry Office at the fairgrounds.

Participants are encouraged to wear suitable clothing and bring a lunch. Transportation to the trailhead northwest of Antigo on County Highway T will be provided from the fairgrounds.

An added feature for outing participants will be the awarding of a special hiker patch during the chapterís 40th anniversary celebration. To earn the patch, persons must make two or six outings scheduled by the chapter this year and in 2013.

The September hike will be five miles in length on the Parrish Hills segment which winds through magnificent hardwood and wetland areas. The segment is one of four in the county recognized in 1977 by Secretary of the Interior Thomas Kleppe as the Ice Age Recreation Trail in the National Trails System.

In the 1980s, the National Trail Act was amended to designate Wisconsinís Ice Age Trail as a scenic trail in the national system. There are currently 11 trails designated as national scenic trails.

The final hike this year is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 4.

Dates for the 2015 hikes will be set at the Monday, Sept. 11 chapter meeting to be held in the Langlade County Resource Center. The meeting is open to the public.
