Venture through heavily forested trails, passing creeks, ponds, and lakes that dot this northern backcountry. Discovered in 1634 by French explorer Jean Nicolet, the 661,000-acre Nicolet National Forest surrounds the Sokaogon/Chippewa community of Mole Lake. You’ll go deep into beautiful forest on old logging roads and abandoned railroads.
Skirt the headwater swamps of the Peshtigo, Wolf, and Wisconsin Rivers. Keep an eye out for plenty of indigenous wildlife, including deer, beaver, bald eagles, loons, foxes, and black bear. The region is also a paradise for paddlers and fishers alike. Come explore the northwoods with us in this land of lakes.
