Tracing what geologists call a terminal moraine, Wisconsin’s Ice Age National Scenic Trail stretches as far south as the glaciers crept. All that scouring left its mark, and that’s the coolest thing about the 1,200-mile trail: whenever you’re on it, it’s safe to assume you’re hiking or cross-country skiing (mountain biking is generally not allowed) through the state’s most interesting terrain. Check out New Wood State Wildlife Area, home to a few wolf packs.
