Ice Age Trail Cross Plains Segment

Description:

The 2.8-mile Cross Plains Segment shows off the village of Cross Plains, which is situated along Black Earth Creek in a valley between tall bluffs. It sits at the boundary of the most recent glaciation to the east and north and the Driftless Area to the west and south. Meltwater from the receding glacier eroded and carried the terminal moraine downstream from the site of the village. (Ice Age Trail Alliance)
