We had a full house on our Mammoth 41 Hike on the Chippewa River Segment on Oct. 9th.  Fifty Four participants came to enjoy our beautiful Chippewa River Segment for the first time!  For most of our hikers, it was their first time hiking on the Ice Age Trail.  Several Girl Scout troops came for our hike, and many Cornell Scouts came with their families.  Everyone had a great time, and we are hoping that many of these families will join us again on future hikes.  Now that they have hiked this segment, maybe they will be inspired to try our other segments.  

Kids were encouraged to find a walking stick along the way, and by the end, they all had one.  After the hike, families and scouts were invited to the Cornell Visitor Center to meet Monty.   Craft materials were supplied and children decorated their walking sticks.  Thanks to our chapter volunteers for assisting on the hike and back at the Visitor’s Center.
