Ed's Lake Trail

The 1.5 million acres of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest sprawl across northern Wisconsin in four major lobes. Two sections in the northeast cover 661,000 acres; a vast playground of woods and water. Covering parts of six counties, the forest lures nature lovers with countless lakes and dozens of campgrounds. For the mountain biker there are miles and miles of forest roads, plus nine off-road trail systems. Often the trails are used for cross-country skiing in winter. Ed's Lake Trails are typical of the mountain bike riding you'll find here.


The trailhead is located on County Highway W midway between Crandon and Wabeno. Look for a large sign along the northeast side of the highway. Parking is available for 12 or more vehicles.
