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
near Mellen, WI to the Wisconsin-Michigan border.
Our main activities have included: marking, certification, and maintenance of
the Uller Hiking and Ski Trail and Casey Sag to WrenFalls
segments; layout, planning and initial construction of new segments and a
number of public event activities throughout the state. 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.
