Three Fantastic Silent Sports You Need to Try in Northern Wisconsin

The quiet of a winter’s day in Northern Wisconsin is something everyone needs to experience. Crisp winter air, lightly falling snow, and the beauty of the forest are something to behold!

Not everyone enjoys the long, cold winter here. But when you discover the beauty of winter silent sports, a long winter can be pure bliss.

What are Silent Sports?

Silent sports are outdoor activities that do not require a motor or engine. Examples are hiking, skiing, rock climbing, mountain biking, etc. Here are a couple of silent sports to try this winter. 

Cross Country Skiing & Snowshoeing

There are miles of trails in the area for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, but the Ice Age Trail and the Pride Pond Natural Area and Pond System are among the most popular places to hit the trails. Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is another excellent place you’ll want to check out.

Fat Tire Biking 

Like cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, you can find fat tire bike trails pretty easily near, Minocqua and Tomahawk. But one of the best fat bike trail systems in the state is within an hour of us. With over 6 miles of groomed single-track trails, Lambo Mountain Bike Trail tops the charts for fun on your fattie.

Winter’s peaceful landscape is ideal for silent sports in northern Wisconsin. We hope you get out and enjoy at least one of them!
