Ice Age National Scenic Trail: Southern Holy Hill Segment Professional Review and Guide
"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 through the thick sheet of ice above. This segment of the Ice Age Trail approaches from the north, passes around the kame, and heads south. The best option for hiking this segment is to park in the middle of the hike on Station Way Road and hike the northern and southern halves each as out-and-back routes."
