Chequamegon-Nicolet Nat'l Forest-Hayward
The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest covers more than 1.5 million acres of Wisconsin's Northwoods. The Chequamegon side of the forest covers about 858,400 acres in Ashland, Bayfield, Sawyer, Price, Taylor and Vilas counties while the Nicolet side covers nearly 661,400 acres in Florence, Forest, Langlade, Oconto, Oneida and Vilas counties. The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest represents the “Best of Wisconsin's Northwoods." Formed by the receding glaciers of the past ice age, more than 1 million acres of temperate forests and barrens are interspersed with stream, rivers and lakes to provide a truly diverse landscape that has something for all. The Forest is managed with multiple uses in mind. The objective of this management is to continue restoration of the northern forests landscapes lost or damaged during the turn of the 20th century logging, while providing a wide array of uses and experiences to the public.
