Hiking, Cross-Country Skiing, Birdwatching
The 218-acre Telemark Forest Preserve is located just south of Cable, Wisconsin. Over 10,000 years ago, Wisconsin’s last glacier left behind a rolling and hummocky landscape of sand, gravel and rock, an ideal substrate to nurture today’s forest of oak and pine. Low-lying areas collect water which slowly seeps into the sandy soil, providing essential groundwater to feed the clear and cold Namekagon River. The forest community is entirely intact, containing older growth forest characteristics which will only improve over time.
Trails traverse the property for hiking, groomed cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and biking. The property and trails have connectivity with Bayfield County forestland to the south and land owned by the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation to the east. This is a mutli-use property. Please be alert of other users during your visit. The American Birkebeiner ski race goes through this property every winter!
Parking is available at the North End Trailhead in the Bayfield County parking lot to the south. Walk along the trails or Randysek Road to the north to enter the Telemark Forest Preserve.
