Remember back in May when we were all voting to be The Best Town Ever? Well, that time we lost to Chattanooga – but not this time! Michelob Ultra (for real) and the American Hiking Society are giving away two $25,000 grants to preserve trails across America, and one of the front runners is in our own backyard. And you can help.

Wisconsin’s entry is the Ice Age Trail in Rib Lake and we’re currently sitting at third place. Ahead of us is Continental Divide Trail in Silver City, New Mexico and Florida Scenic Trail in Crawfordville, Florida.

If you’ve never been to the Ice Age Trail I suggest you go (especially as the leaves are turning) because it makes a pretty amazing hike. You can find more info about the trail and some pictures on Michelob’s (really) voting site, and read about the trail’s plans for the grant.

You can cast your vote here for your favorite trail, which is obviously ours, right?
