Highlighted by its unique forest landscapes and abundant wetlands, the Chequamegon-Nicolet is a hiker's paradise. Don't like to hike? The same trails may also be used in the winter by cross-country skiers, and shared in the summer with mountain bikers and horseback riders. If you'd rather not venture outside, try a scenic auto tour.
