Hiking

The Chequamegon Bay region is a great place for hiking.

Some great hiking trails are at Copper Falls – located in Mellen.  To get to Copper Falls State Park: Drive just 25 miles south of Ashland on State Hwy. 13 and hike and enjoy the beautiful waterfalls at Copper Falls.

The Heritage Chapter of the North Country Trail Association invites you to enjoy the forests, lakes, and rivers of our trail country in Iron and Ashland Counties.  Click here for North Country Trail Maps and Brochures for the Heritage Chapter’s Region.

Walking & Biking

Ashland has a great walking/biking trail that runs along the lake, as well as along the 5th Street Corridor. This walking/biking trail connects with the Tri-County Recreational Corridor. If you were really ambitious, you could make your way all the way to Superior!
