Almost every snowmobiler in the Midwest is aware of the fantastic winter playground found near the Washburn area of Bayfield County. Hundreds of miles of wilderness trails provide tours through this area’s natural beauty, beckoning riders to return year after year.
Bayfield County welcomes winter snow enthusiasts to their winter paradise. A special treat for riders can be found on Trail 63, which travels from Hayward north through Cable, Drummond and Grandview as it continues on toward Mason. Along this trail riders will cross three refurbished railroad trestles, the 200 foot Namakagon River Bridge, 585 foot 18 Mile Creek Bridge, and the 325 foot White River Ramblers Snowmobile Bridge, each providing an awesome view.
Trail 7 traveling east from Cable brings riders to the scenic Lake Namakagon, the 10th largest natural lake in Wisconsin. From here a trek south on Trail 8 provides an excellent opportunity to view wildlife as riders travel along the Rock Lake Semi-Primitive Area.
