What do our visitors have to say about our Trails?

hiking walkingTrail Discovery – L. William Staudenmaier, Wauwatosa, WI.

I thought I might share with you and your readers a little gem of a trail I discovered recently in northeastern Wisconsin.

About four miles east of Crivitz and a mile or so east of Lake Noquebay on right of Way Woad, the Lake Noquebay Trail System comprises four or five loops totaling probably 10 to 12 miles. The course is almost entirely wooded – about equal evergreens and deciduous – with a number of gentle hills. It's ideal for classic cross country skiing but too narrow for skating. In addition to skiing, the trail signage indicates that hikers, mountain bikers and snowshoers are welcome; a perfect venue for a silent sports type.walking

Best of all, it's peaceful. In a two-hour hike on a recent weekday, I encountered a couple grouse, some other song birds and two deer, but no other humans. The road traffic on Right of Way Road is minimal. You can access it either from the south off of County Road GG or from the north off of County Road X.
