"The Ice Age Trail starts out wide as it heads west from CTH-E, but quickly narrows through birch forest with an undergrowth of ferns. In less than a mile, the Trail leaves the footpath and has a short road walk along Mondeaux Ave. (FR-102).

After crossing the North Fork of the Yellow River, the Ice Age Trail continues on FR-102 for 100 yards to a gated unmarked forest trail. The Ice Age Trail turns abruptly south along this forest trail, then the route wiggles westerly. Reach a primitive campsite 0.6 miles west of FR-102. Located on the north shore of an unnamed, small lake, the site has no improvements.

Leaving the lake, continue west 0.1 miles to a junction with Forest Trail 350. To access Mondeaux Ave. (FR-102), hike 0.2 miles north on Forest Trail 350. From the junction, the Ice Age Trail turns south and at 0.7 miles intersects the Chippewa Lobe Interpretive Loop; marked by a small, steel sign." Hiking trail info by iceagetrail.rog

Chequamegon National Forest - Jerry Lake

"In the Chequamegon National Forest, this segment features Jerry Lake, the mile-long Hemlock Esker, and several crossings of the Yellow River. The Ice Age Trail traverses the Chippewa Moraine over crevasse fills and across several glacial ice-walled lake plains in a heavily forested area. A true sense of the remoteness of the area is felt despite a few forest road crossings throughout the segment.

A quiet footpath, one of the best woodland walks in the state. This stretch of the Ice Age Trail is an undiscovered gem. If you like quiet, woodland walks on narrow, intimate footpaths, push this hike to the top of your list. Mile after mile of soul-satisfying, deep woods ambiance rolls by, while the sight of another hiker is a rarity." Ice Age Trail description by iceagetrail.org
