Overview


This scenic, wide twin track trail has hilly, rolling terrain and passes through a diverse forest of pine, aspen, birch, balsam fir, and northern hardwoods. On the northeast edge of loop C, a short single track connects to ATV trails. Loop D is very hilly with steep ascents and descents. ATV trails are also located south and east of the Wintergreen Trailhead parking lot.

There is a shelter with a fireplace at the trailhead and another shelter is located west of the intersection of Loops B and C. A National Forest parking fee is required. You can purchase a single day pass, a multi-day pass, or an annual pass that covers a forest or region. The daily fee can be paid at the trailhead. An annual sticker or multi-day pass can be purchased at the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest office 715-762-2461 at 1170 South 4th Avenue/Highway 13 in Park Falls.
