    Trail to tower at Timm's Hill

Located at Timm's Hill County Park near Timm’s Hill, Wisconsin’s highest geographical point, these 9 miles of non-motorized trails traverse some of the most hilly terrain in the state. The landscape viewed from the top of the observation tower on Timm’s Hill is one not to be missed. Forests of hardwood and hemlock border the full length of the trail. This is one of the finest trail systems around. It also connects to the National Ice Age Trail and the Rib Lake Ski Area Trails via the Timm's Hill Trail. In the winter the trail is groomed for both classic and skate skiing by the High Point Ski Club with lighted night skiing available for groups by appointment; snowshoeing is allowed on the ungroomed portion of the trail. The vault toilets located at the park are available for use in the winter.

Directions

The north end of the trail is located 3 miles east of Ogema on State Highway 86, then south 1 mile on County Highway C, then south 1 mile on County Road RR/Rustic Road 62 to the park entrance, which is a one-way road. The gates at both ends of the park road are opened each morning and closed each evening except in the winter when the snow gets too deep and the road is impassable. It is about a half mile from either gate to the park. To access the ski trail, continue on County Road RR/Rustic Road 62 to where it intersects with Ring School Road which is near the park road exit. You can park on Ring School Road to access the trail.
