The North Lakeland Discovery Center, a nonprofit nature center located in Manitowish Waters in northern Wisconsin’s Vilas County, recently opened a new silent sports trail system: the WinMan Trails.
Munising, Mich., welcomes ski campers
The last couple years our ski camp has been in the Munising, Michigan, area where we explore the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore in the heart of winter.
Making the best of it
Marquette earned a bronze-level “bike friendly community” designation from the League of American Bicyclists in 2010. But with more than a third of its 40 miles of singletrack built since then, the city deserves to be upgraded to gold or platinum status.
A Tale of Two Races
Charles Dickens’ novel
A Tale of Two Cities
juxtaposes life in Paris and London during the onset of the French Revolution.
In contrast, two small northwestern Wisconsin hamlets, Hayward and Cable, serve as anchors to two of my favorite and humbling events, the Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival and the American Birkebeiner.
Living in the dairy state, I doubt I’m the only biker that’s pulled up short for a group of runaway Holsteins who have gotten only as far as the road before losing interest in their mission. But how many bikers have had the same experience with runaway llamas?
The Kettle Moraine extends from southern Wisconsin to southern Door County. The mostly forested and undulating terrain makes a great place for the enjoyment of a wide range of outdoor sports.
Leashing licensed cyclists
A new UCI rule will force riders to choose between sanctioned events, such as races in the Wisconsin Off Road Series (WORS), and nonsanctioned, grassroots events in the upper Midwest, like the Chequamegon 40 or Ore to Shore Mountain Bike Epic. The penalty for violating the rule is one month’s suspension and a fine of $66 to $132.
Can't stop ... too often
The best week-long bike tour I've done - complete with great scenery every day, rolling hills with spectacular lake views, ideal weather, good camping locations and plenty of tasty food - was the Shoreline West Bike Tour last August.
Meeting a need for singletrack in metro Milwaukee
As any avid Milwaukee-area mountain biker knows, finding enjoyable singletrack through hilly wooded terrain requires a drive of a 30- to 60-minute drive, depending on the direction you travel.
We're spoiled by kayak symposia in the upper Midwest
Sea kayaking continues to be of great interest to paddlers in the Midwest. The conditions on the Great Lakes are ideal for longboats. Sure, salt tastes great sometimes, but we have some pretty amazing paddling right here in our backyard.
Lake Huron's Mississagi Coast
For true kayaking enthusiasts, the northeast coast of Lake Superior is the crown jewel of kayak touring in the Midwest. The Slate Islands are there with their woodland caribou and exotic geology. Lake Superior Provincial Park is there with its natural history and the spiritual presence of Nanabijou. Pukaskwa National Park is there with its rugged beaches and the magical allure of its wilderness coves.
Call me Ishmael. No, wait a second. Call me idiot. And call my brother Michael Captain Ahab. It's good to have goals, but when does dogged determination become maniacal obsession?
A highlight for many canoeists in northwest Wisconsin is to be one of the first to paddle down the Flambeau River in the spring. Being the owners of the Flambeau Lodge in Rusk County, Wisconsin, was a real advantage for us in the "Spring Run of '71."
Ghosts of the Menominee River
"Daylight in the swamp!" my dad announced as he shook me and my brother Rod awake. It was the summer of 1953 and day was just working its way over the bluffs of Door County. I was 11 years old and Rod was eight. We were going fishing for perch on the Government Pier in Menekaunee. Catching perch was magical in those days. Sure we were tired, but visions of jumbo perch danced in our heads.
Paddling the Milwaukee River
The Milwaukee River in southeastern Wisconsin is a great waterway to lose yourself on any given day from April through October.
