Bearskin State Trail is one of northern Wisconsin's most notable trails. This 18.3 mile former railway line winds its way through old-fields and forests. It snakes along freshwater habitats - marshes, bogs, lakes and creeks. The trail traverses 13 railroad trestles. It steals a look at animals and birds. Hike or bike on crushed granite. Snowmobile on a blanket of white. Spy on wildlife big and small - turtles, beavers, bald eagles, loons and deer. Start out in Minocqua. Journey all or part of the way to Harshaw. Hit the trail in the opposite direction. End an outdoor adventure at Torpy Park, it boasts a playground, public beach, and, in winter, an ice rink.
