Until railroads came in the late 1880s, the Flambeau Trail was the only transportation link between the Lake Superior watershed to the north and the Mississippi watershed to the south. It was an important commercial route for Native Americans, voyagers and explorers traveling between settlements on Madeline Island and Lac du Flambeau. The trail was necessary because no navigable rivers connected the two watersheds.
