Boulder Junction

   The town is known as the "Musky Capital of the World", more muskies are caught per square mile than any other similar sized area in the world. Boulder Junction used to be the national base of the Boy Scouts, which makes sense when you think about how connected to nature this town is. When you step out of your car in Boulder Junction, there is a part of you that feels like you should never get back in. It feels like you should walk or bike to your destination. Just a lovely small town setting.

Closest Hospital:
Howard Young Medical Center - Minocqua / 21 minutes south
Nearby Biking/Hiking Trails:
Bear Lake Road - A 4.4 mile leg that goes from the Heart of Vilas County bike trail to the Little Crooked Lake boat landing. The trail is smooth and mostly flat.

Heart of Vilas County (Boulder Junction) - This 9.7 mile section of the Heart of Vilas County paved trail runs along varying terrain right through Bould Junction. Many scenic viewing areas and a picnic area are along this part of the route.

Lumberjack Trail - The Lumberjack Trail has loops of 4.6 and 12.5 miles and is for biking, hiking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing. There is a fee for this mountain biking route (Wisconsin State Trail Pass). The route takes you near Fishtrap and White Sand Lake as well as the edge of the Manitowish River.

Nichols Lake Landing - A short .6 mile trip that can be extended by 3.3 miles by starting at the Boulder Junction community center.

White Deer Loop - This 6.5 mile trip takes you through a wooded area and the airport landing strip before ending at the Boulder Lake landing. The area is known for its white deer population so keep your eyes peeled.

Nearby Cross Country Skiing Trails:
Boulder Junction Winter Park - This .9 groomed trail is good for cross country skiing, snowshoeing and walking. There is also a sledding hill, an ice rink and a warming hut that has a bonfire area.

Escanaba Pallette Lake Trails - This trail system features loops of 2,4, 5.5 and 8.5 miles. A Wisconsin State Trail Pass is required. The trails are hilly and very scenic going around several lakes and through a variety of timber.

Lumberjack Trail - See above for details.

Nearby Paddling Routes:
NHAL Canoe Trip #1 - A 7.5 mile route that takes approximately 4 hours to paddle. A small creek leads to High Lake and from there go through Fishtrap Lake and then back down the river. Several campsites are located along the way.

NHAL Canoe Trip #2 - This 6.1 mile paddle takes about 3 hrs to complete. You will go across Boulder Lake (where there are several campsites available) and then down the river to the boat landing near Hwy K.

NHAL Canoe Trip #3 - An eight hour 15.5 mile paddling route that you should allow for several days to complete. If you want to make it a shorter trip you can take out by the Island Lake boat landing.

NHAL Canoe Trip #5 - This paddling route is 19 miles and takes around 12 hours to complete. It starts at White Sand Lake and then goes across a few lakes and has a long run of river paddling. There are several portages along the way. There are also several campsites along the way so you could make this into a real northwoods adventure.

Nearby ATV Trails:
No nearby routes
Nearby Snowmobile Trails:
The Boulder Junction Snowmobile Club - Featuring 128 miles of groomed trails around Boulder Junction. The trail system connects to other systems giving you access to anywhere you want to go explore on your sled.

Surrounding Towns:
Manitowish Waters - A fourteen minute drive through the Northwoods on mostly county roads will take you into Manitowish Waters. Manitowish Waters is similar to Boulder Junction in that it is a laid back down with the essentials and some great places to grab a bite to eat. The Manitowish Chain offers a ski show a couple nights a week in the summer and there are many trails for walking/biking/etc in the area.

Minocqua - Head south for 20 minutes on County Rd M and then Hwy 51 and you will be in Minocqua. The "island city" is probably the most "modern" of the towns in Northern Wisconsin. There are still plenty of the older mom and pop type of businesses, but they are sprinkled in with fast food restaurants and other national box store outlets. There is a wide variety of things to do and places to visit around Minocqua and the chain of lakes that surround the town is one of the most popular ones around. Being popular, it is also the busiest chain around. The town is considered a tourist hot spot and many summer weekends you will feel like you're back in the city with all the people...well, you will if you're coming from the Lac Du Flambeau area at least!

Woodruff - A seventeen minute drive south on M and then Hwy 51 will take you to Woodruff. Woodruff is basically an extension of Minocqua. The road widens to four lanes and the town blends right into Minocqua.

Presque Isle - Twenty minutes to the northwest lies Presque Isle. Presque Isle feels like it was taken off an old "Up North" postcard. You are getting close to the MI border and there isn't a whole lot for activity. If you're looking to get away, it's a great spot to explore.

Times are approximate. I just took the time from the center of town.
