This 18-mile trail connects the Hiawatha Trail to Minocqua. It’s built on the same 1880s railway corridor as the Hiawatha Trail. The railway once hauled white pine to market. Today, the trail treats riders to more Northwoods beauty, crossing bogs and forests and passing lakes and historic sites. It follows the path of Bearskin Creek. The path is open for biking and pedestrian traffic in the summer; snowmobiles use the path in the winter. It’s a good place for a family walk and leashed pets are allowed. Cyclists will need a state trail pass; self-registration stations are available on the trail. See map here.
