   Katherine Lake is a big beautiful lake with clear, deep water. It is a highly sought after lake because of the water quality, the location (just minutes from town) and its picturesque shoreline. Homes don't come up real often on Katherine, and when they do, they usually sell pretty quick. The lake is just south of Minocqua so you are close to the action, but you avoid the traffic that comes with being on the chain.

Biking/Walking/Ski Trails:
Bearskin State Trail - The Bearskin Trail about a quarter mile west of Katherine Lake. It is an 18 mile semi-paved trail that isn't groomed in the winter. The surface is crushed granite and the trail is pretty level. A trail pass is required for biking.
Paddling Routes:
No nearby designated paddling routes. The Minocqua Chain is real close is better for paddling than most paddling routes anyway. The water is clear and there is a lot of action to watch. It's an entertaining way to spend a few hours...or days, if you want! Sticking to exploring the shoreline of Katherine is not a bad option either, it's a beautiful lake.
Snowmobile Trails:
The Cross Country Cruisers Trail System goes right across Katherine Lake. This club grooms 90 miles of trails that connect to the rest of the trails in Northern Wisconsin.
ATV Trails:
No nearby ATV Trails
