The City of Delafield becomes an Ice Age Trail Community

Delafield, WI — When complete, the Ice Age National Scenic Trail will cross approximately 132 communities in 31 of Wisconsin’s 72 counties. Along the way, the Trail takes users to some of the best glacial features in the world, provides opportunities for personal rejuvenation, is an outdoor classroom, and is an economic resource for communities. These assets make the Ice Age Trail a welcome addition to many communities ranging from small roadside stops to bustling metropolises.

The Ice Age Trail Alliance has established the Ice Age Trail Community program, designed to help communities leverage the Trail as an economic and social engine, while promoting the Ice Age National Scenic Trail to community members and visitors alike. Commitment to this program represents an agreement to cross promote one another, building healthy and vibrant communities.

The City of Delafield is the most recent addition to the Ice Age Trail Community roster. Tucked in the heart of the Kettle Moraine, Delafield is rich with outdoor beauty and year-round recreational activities. It offers casual and award-winning dining, lodging, specialty shopping and unique historic sites. Delafield is full of friendly faces and stays true to its small town ideals.

To celebrate this designation the Alliance and City of Delafield plan to host a National Trails Day event on June 3rd, 2017. Details to follow.

The Ice Age Trail, one of only eleven National Scenic Trails, is a thousand-mile footpath highlighting Wisconsin's world-renowned Ice Age heritage and natural resources.

The Ice Age Trail Alliance is a non-profit volunteer- and member-based organization established in 1958 that works to create, support and protect the Ice Age Trail. Visit for hiking information and volunteer opportunities.

Delafield is a vibrant city, nestled in-between Milwaukee and Madison, Wisconsin, and is set among the tranquil waters and rolling hills of Waukesha County’s “Lake Country."
