There is great new "geology of the moraine" signage installed at Prairie Moraine Park. There are 5 signs - the first two placed at the entrances: one near the Ice Age Trail parking lot entrance and one near the dog park gate into the Ice Age Trail area; and three larger ones at the overlook on the moraine. They are best enjoyed on site with the landscape and its features in front of you. However, if it's too cold for you to hike out and see them in person, just scroll on down the page to see all five!
These signs are the product of a collective effort on the part of the Ice Age Trail Alliance, Wisconsin Geological & Natural History Survey, Prairie Moraine Friends, Inc., and Dane County Parks. Special thanks to Dave Lonsdorf for seeing that these signs, long planned for, are now a reality for all to enjoy.

Walk 2.6 kilometers or 1.6 miles of beautiful trails in the northern half of Prairie Moraine Park, watch for the twelve marked posts, and read or listen to a guided tour as you go.
