Ice Age Trail gets Antigo area land

Thirty-nine plus acres in the town of Antigo in Langlade County will one day include a section of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail, a 1,200-mile hiking path that traces the geology left by the most recent glacier, thanks to the partnership of private landowners, the Ice Age Trail Alliance, the National Park Service and the state of Wisconsin.

Family trustees of the Louise Selenske estate sold the property to the Ice Age Trail Alliance, based out of Cross Plains in December. The property sets atop one of two scenic terminal moraines in Langlade County overlooking a large glacial outwash plain known locally as the Antigo Flats. Someday the parcel will provide highway access and help link the Ice Age Trail, one of 11 National Scenic Trails, through central Wisconsin.

"This property serves as an anchor point for the Trail in southern Langlade County," Kevin Thusius, director of Land Conservation for the Ice Age Trail Alliance, said.
