Climb A Forest Path And Ogle Magnificent Old-Growth Giants On This Fairy Tale Trail In Wisconsin’s Cathedral Pines

More than 100 years ago, a woman sat in the forest, listened to the sound of the wind in the trees, and imagined a cathedral. In those days, the forest was disappearing, because of fast-moving logging operations across the Northwoods. But thanks to this woman’s recognition of a special place, these old trees were saved and the area is now one of the state’s most magical hiking spots. Here’s what you need to know about this lovely old-growth forest in Wisconsin.

The property has a small gravel parking lot and the trail is less than a half-mile long. Take your time though, and enjoy the magic of this old-growth forest in Wisconsin! Learn more on the state Department of Natural Resources website. If you love wild trails, here are some that will take you through every month of the year!
