There’s A Small Picnic Spot And Beach Hidden On This Gorgeous Remote Wisconsin Trail

Some of the most beautiful places to wander and get a bit lost in Wisconsin are way up north, where the land feels like it hasn’t been touched for years. With tons of forests and lakes up north, there are small trails to hike in Wisconsin with places to explore and discover around nearly every turn. Located in Vilas County, Star Lake is an unincorporated town that was once a bustling spot with a railroad going through. That’s hard to imagine now as the trees have all grown back and the nearest town is miles away.

In the Northern Highland American Legion State Forest, you’ll find a series of trails that wind around the water here. You’ll find the perfect place to rest awhile along the Star Lake shoreline. Pack a lunch and take advantage of what feels like the world’s smallest, most private beach.

Learn more about Star Lake and this trail from Vilas County here and from the Wisconsin State Department of Resources here.

Address: 7999 State House Road, Star Lake, WI, 54561.
