Bearskin State Trail

This 18-mile railbed trail offers a packed granite gravel surface for hiking/biking in the warmer weather, and snowmobiling in the winter. Excellent birding as the trail transects varied habitats - northern hardwoods, bogs, old-field, marsh and springs, and trout stream. The south end of the trail is especially productive. Numerous trestles and boardwalks provide viewing stops. Fascinating interpretive signage.


The north trailhead is located behind the post office in Minocqua; the south trailhead is about two miles southwest of Harshaw on Cty. K. You'll find paved parking at both trailheads.
