Rustic Road 58

Blue Lake Road skirts many scenic Northwoods' lakes while wandering through thick pine and hardwood forests. This route crosses a railroad bed that was used in the 1800's as a main line to Minocqua. It has now been converted to the Bearskin State Trail for hiking and bicycling. Where Blue Lake Road intersects the Tomahawk River, you'll find an ideal spot for launching a canoe. The Northwood's beauty continues along Mercer Lake Road as it travels across two small creeks, through cedar lowlands and dense pine and hardwood forests before intersecting with WIS 70.


Oneida County. Travel north on US Highway 51 just past Hazelhurst. Take Blue Lake Road west from US Highway 51 to Mercer Lake Road, and Mercer Lake Road, north from Blue Lake Road to State Highway 70.
