Description

Love nature? Then take the Great Divide National Scenic Highway through the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest and revel in the wonderful diversity of plant and animal life in the majestic Northwoods. The byway passes through forests harboring black bear, timber wolves and white-tailed deer. It crosses lakes, swamps and bogs alive with beaver, loons and bald eagles. Lakes and rivers are also abundant in the area, providing more scenery to capture on film. If the weather is not to your taste or the wildlife proves elusive, spend some time with nature of a different sort at the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame, a not-to-miss attraction in the area.

Some of the most beautiful scenery in Northern Wisconsin occurs during the fall foliage season, when the fiery reds and shimmering golds of the sugar maples and red maples contrast against the deep greens of pine and fir to the delight of travelers.
