Status update 5/21/2020- Trails and trailheads are available for use, hgowever, they will not be maintained, nor will any associated facilities be available such as restrooms or garbage receptacles until further notice.

The Forest is working with trail partners to address imminent hazards on trails and will be doing required maintenance only while we work through the risks associated with additional field work. When visiting your public lands, it is important to be aware of current forest limitations.

To protect public health and safety, all visitors to the Forest are encouraged to:

  • Avoid visiting the forest if you are sick and/or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Follow CDC guidance on personal hygiene and social distancing before and during your visit to the Forest.
  • Take your trash with you when you leave.
  • Please make arrangements to use the restroom before or after your visit to the forest. Unmanaged waste creates a health hazard for our employees and for other visitors.
  • If an area is crowded, please search for a less occupied location. Also consider avoiding the Forest during high-use periods.

The Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest will continue to coordinate its COVID-19 response in alignment with all federal, state and local guidance. When visiting your public lands, it is important to be aware of current forest limitations.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we all work together to minimize the impacts and spread of COVID-19.


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.
