Glacial Geology of the Northern Kettle Moraine
Renowned for its geologic beauty, Wisconsin’s Northern Kettle Moraine State Forest offers an incredible opportunity to see and study Ice Age features. We begin at the Ice Age Trail Visitor’s Center, where displays teach about processes behind the formation of these relics. We then take a bus tour of the many formations the ice sheet left on the landscape, also hiking up to and over some of them. Sights include a kame, esker, moraine, and a kettle lake, as well as a trek to the top of Parnell Tower. Enjoyable any time of the year, geologic features are most visible when the leaves are off the trees.
