Places to Visit in Verona, WI

Ice Age National Scenic Trail – Not many cities can boast having a national trail, but Verona can. The Ice Age National Scenic Trail is one of only eight national scenic trails in the United States. Primarily for foot journey, it showcases Wisconsin's world-renowned glacial features. The Verona Segment of the trail takes wayfarers on a 6-1/2 mile trek that travels through farm fields, woods and prairies, along Badger Mill Park, past glacial kettle ponds and through Badger Prairie County Park with acres of prairie flowers and grasses. The Ice Age Trail, totally contained in Wisconsin, is intended for such low-impact activities as walking, backpacking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. The serpentine course approximates the last stopping point or terminal edge of the most recent continental glaciers, which ended their last major surge 14,000 to 16,000 years ago.
