The great outdoors & tons of trails

Want to get some peace and quiet as you explore the snow-covered scenery and wintry fresh air of the Northwoods? Grab a pair of skis or snowshoes (or rent them at a local store like Mel’s Trading Post) and explore the Rhinelander Area’s cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails. Popular routes for skiers and snowshoers include the CAVOC Trails east of Rhinelander and the tree-lined Almon Park Trail.

While we’re still waiting to open our trails for the season, Rhinelander is a great hub for snowmobiling adventures when the white stuff flies, too. Launch your snowmobile outing from one of the area’s resorts and hotels that offer easy access to the trails and explore more than 1,000 miles of snowmobiling fun throughout Oneida County.
