Silent-sport options in Boulder Junction

January 4, 2016

We all know Boulder Junction is a great destination for snowmobilers in the winter, with 130 miles of trails that connect to thousands more miles of trails across northern Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

But for those visitors looking for something a little slower-paced, Boulder Junction offers lots of activities and events for silent-sports enthusiasts, too. Here’s a few to keep in mind:

Snowshoeing. Strap on your snowshoes and explore the snowy wonder of the Boulder Junction area in winter. Plow through fresh powder on the Lumberjack Trail or take in the scenery on the North Trout Lake Trail. Find more information on snowshoeing here.

Cross-country skiing. You’ll find plenty of groomed trails in the Boulder Junction area, including those at the Boulder Junction Winter Park and the Escanaba-Pallette Lake Trails, but more adventurous skiers might want to head into woods (try the Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest that surrounds Boulder Junction) to blaze their own trail.

Ice fishing. The Musky Capital of the World® has more than just muskies. Get out on the ice this winter and try to land some panfish or northern.
