Description

Scott Lake Trail leads south (from FR 2183) through a towering stand of white pines and hemlocks about 300 years old and follows the wetland around Scott Lake. A short trail to Shelp Lake winds north through large, old hemlocks to a bog surrounding the lake, providing close-up views of bog plants. This is an excellent area to glimpse some of northern Wisconsin's distinctive birds--gray jays, black-backed woodpeckers, and boreal chickadees. Shelp Lake is a Research Natural Area and part of the Headwaters Wilderness. Along with Scott Lake, this is part of a cooperatively designated State Scientific Natural Area.
