|Round Lake Skiing and Hiking Trails
This 11 mile trail system provides access to the
3600-acre Round Lake Semi-Primitive Non-Motorized Area. This unique
area has numerous foot trails and old road grades. The area contains
the origin of the South Fork of the Flambeau River; stands of
towering, old-growth white pine and hemlock forests surrounding
Tucker Lake; and a restored logging dam dating back to the 1800's.
The trail terrain varies from fairly gently rolling slopes and
steeper ridges to occasional low wet areas. Camping is permitted
throughout the area with several spots having been cleared for
primitive camping. There is a lot of human history associated
with this area and when walking along the trails you can almost
conjure up what it was like during the logging era of the 1800's.
