It weaves its course through changing scenery of primarily Northern Hardwood and Aspen forest types, which are typical of Langlade County. You will also see pine and spruce forests, as well as bogs and other wetlands. Glacial features of the area include terminal moraines and drumlins. Family-style skiing for all skill levels. As for snowshoeing, the snowshoe trail head is located a mile down the road from the cross country ski trail in Langlade County's Veteran's Memorial Park. The trail meanders along three undeveloped glacier lakes, wetlands, and bogs.
