Winter Wonderland is not so Far Away!

Mother Nature has certainly been kind to us up here in the County of Trails.  Once the Polar Vortex got out of the way that is.  Earlier in the week (Jan 14) we received a gift in the amount of 9" of perfect snow.  That was then followed up with two more nights snow where we received about 8" total to set the stage for an incredible weekend of winter fun.

All the groomers then hit the trails to get them in tip-top shape for you to come and experience some of the best outdoor recreation in the State!

Snowmobilers were out in full force over the weekend, taking advantage of excellent conditions and visiting a few of the area businesses as well.  All the cross country ski trails are groomed and tracked and are also in great shape for weeks to come.

With the free fishing weekend, we saw lots of anglers on area lakes.  With over 170,000 acres of public land, snowshoers are experiencing some of the best conditions in a long time.  And, don't forget that we have forest roads open for snow biking.  

The beauty of all the trails in Langlade County is that we are centrally located and very easy to get to.  Our App (Langlade County Tourism for Apple and Android) and the website will provide you maps and trail reports, along with information on what to do after a great day on the trails.

About Langlade County:
Langlade County sits in the north central part of Wisconsin and is accessed by Highways 45, 52,55, and 64.  There are over 530 miles of snowmobile trails with access to Forest, Lincoln, Marathon,Oconto, Oneida and Shawano Counties.   There are six cross country ski systems in the County, they are the City of Antigo system, Gartzke Flowage, Jack Lake (Veterans Memorial Park), Kettle Bowl ski area, Maranatha and Moccasin Lake.  All are groomed for skating and striding with the  exception of the City of Antigo and Maranatha systems which are groomed for striding only.

Langlade County also has a great downhill area, Kettle Bowl which is a tow-rope operated facility and is open on weekends only.

The County is also becoming a destination for our four-legged friends and handlers, that being dog sledding.  Nestled in the Crocker Hills you'll find a trail system that is used for mushers and their teams for training.

If you like to play outside in the Winter then check us out after all, it's all about the adventure in the County of Trails.
