From Rice Lake to Park Falls, the Tuscobia State Trail travels 74 miles through the Flambeau State Forest and Chequamegon National Forest in northern Wisconsin. Enjoy the rugged wilderness of the Blue Hills from a nearly-level former rail grade. Trail users can hike, mountain bike, snowmobile, use ATVs and visit quaint shops in small villages along the trail.
About midway along the trail in the village of Winter, is the restored Winter Railroad Depot. The Depot serves as a trailhead, Visitor Welcome Center, Historical Museum, and offices for Friends of the Tuscobia Trail, a 501c3 nonprofit that cares for the trail. The building, dating back to 1905, is adjacent to what was once the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Railway line on which the trail now travels.
The western tip of the Tuscobia State Trail—from the community of Tuscobia, just north of Rice Lake, to the Village of Birchwood—also overlaps the Ice Age Trail, a 1,200-mile hiking trail across Wisconsin.
Parking is available at either end of the trail in Rice Lake (west end) and Park Falls (east end). The Park Falls trailhead is located at 15400 Park Lane; restrooms and a picnic area are also available here.
