Glacier Ridge Metro Park:Marsh Hawk and Ironweed Trails Professional Review and Guide
"Now surrounded by farmlands, Glacier Ridge was named for the moraine that was left by the retreating Wisconsinan glacier. Today the area features a restored 250-acre wetland, a boardwalk, and an observation tower for a leisurely and informative hike.
The 1,037-acre Glacier Ridge Metro Park offers multiuse trail options in a condensed area known for its wetland education access and public programs. One of the newer metro parks in the system, Glacier Ridge features agricultural land, woodlots, successional areas, and large open fields. The paved multi-use trails are both bike and dog friendly. Plastic bags for canine cleanup are available from the wooden kiosks located along Ironweed Trail."
