Glacier Ridge – Madison

Located on Madison’s southwest side, residents living in the Glacier Ridge Neighborhood enjoy their accessibility to Madison, Verona, Fitchburg, Middleton and beyond. The neighborhood is bordered by McKee Road on the north, Country Grove to the east, Iris Bloom Drive on the south, and Madison City Limits to the west. One of the primary features of Glacier Ridge is the Ice Age Trail, which cuts through the neighborhood and provides the backdrop for many of the homes here. Glacier Ridge was established around the turn of the (last) century with most of the houses built here after the year 2000. Uniquely divided into 2 smaller subdivisions – Heather Glen and Glacier Crossing — many of the homes are situated near natural areas such as prairieland or parkland.
