Fantastic Fall Adventures in the Northwoods of Wisconsin
Autumn is a beautiful time to enjoy the Northwoods of Wisconsin. The pace is a bit slower and much more peaceful. It’s also one of the best times to get out and enjoy the many adventures that the Northwoods has to offer.
Here are a few fantastic adventures for you to try this fall.
- Biking through the fall tree canopy is a fun way to see the change of colors. Check out the Bearskin State Trail, a former railroad corridor that leads you across 13 train trestles. Or, if you’re into mountain biking, don’t miss the excellent Chequamegon National Forest CAMBA trail system, twenty-eight trails with more than 300 miles of riding.
- Paddling is a spectacular way to see the colors change, and the colorful reflections will mesmerize you. Check out The Turtle-Flambeau Flowage, a mini-Boundary Waters, offering 19,000 acres of pristine waters and 212 miles of shoreline to explore.
- Take a leisurely drive through some quiet back roads. Head for Rustic Road 60, considered one of the state’s most spectacular autumn drives. It’s lightly traveled, so it’s also a great place for a fall bike ride. The winding route follows County Highway K, northwest of Star Lake. The route passes old logging camps, hiking trailheads, and an old sawmill in Star Lake.
Don’t forget to check out the Wisconsin Fall Color Report before you go if you want to catch the peak colors. Hope you enjoy this awe-inspiring time of year in the Northwoods!
