Ice Age National Scenic Trail: Holy Hill Segment Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Hike a portion of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail as it passes through forest and prairie over moraines and kames. Then have a look at the Holy Hill Basilica on top of a 1,335-foot kame. From the top you can see all the way to Milwaukee.
A National Shrine of Mary, Holy Hill Basilica is built atop a glacial formation called a kame, formed by debris deposited by a stream that once rushed straight down from the thick sheet of ice above. This segment of the Ice Age Trail approaches from the north, passes around the kame, and heads south. Parking at the trail’s southern end on Donegal Road is not permitted, but there is a small parking lot on Shannon Road just west of the northern trailhead."
