Slinger opens new Ice Age Trail segment to fanfare

SLINGER, WISC. On October 6, the community of Slinger came out to walk and enjoy the newest multi-use trail asset that connects part of the Ice Age Trail through previously vacant land owned by the village. While the Ice Age Trail that winds throughout Wisconsin is pedestrian only, this new segment is also open to bikes yet was awarded full Ice Age Trail segment status by the Ice Age Trail Alliance. The rolling, scenic segment was proposed in a downtown plan by Vandewalle & Associates.

 

In addition to it appeal to tourists, the new segment also connects other assets throughout the village including the middle school, Little Switzerland Ski Area, a church, Community Park, and downtown businesses.

The community gathered after the official ribbon-cutting ceremony to listen to a band in Community Park.
