Welcome to scenic
The Heritage Chapter of the North Country Trail Association invites you to
enjoy the forests, lakes, and rivers of our trail country in Iron and AshlandCounties.
Our chapter was
formed to develop, maintain, and promote use of the North Country National
Scenic Trail from CopperFallsState Park
WI to the
Wisconsin-Michigan border. This area of the North Country National Scenic Trail
remains one of the most remote sections of the trail in Wisconsin.
Bears - Northern Wisconsin has much
remote back country through which the North Country Trail passes. Naturally the
bear population is much higher than other parts of the country. Hikers and overnight
campers should take special precautions with food. No food should be eaten or
kept in tents. If possible, meals should be prepared well away from tent areas.
Food should be placed in suspended packs where bears cannot reach them away
from the tent area.
