This Tiny Wisconsin Town Has Miles and Miles of Trails to Explore

Located about 70 miles southeast of Superior, Cable is a small Northwoods town that’s long been known as a winter destination for folks who love to ski and snowmobile. The starting line of the American Birkebeiner race, Cable can have the feel of a small ski town. But the same miles of open land that draw folks in the winter has become a big draw in the warmer months. Home to one of the best mountain biking trail systems in the country – in a state with no mountains, no less – and with miles and miles of hiking trails, tons of spots to canoe and kayak and a growing active community that’s chosen to settle here, this small town of fewer than 1,000 people is kind of an outdoors-person’s paradise. Here are eight different trails you can discover within a few miles of this wonderful Northwoods town:
