Torch Lake Trails
This part of the Vilas County Forest Hunter/Hiking Trail System winds through rolling hills and features mature natural stands of red and white pine as well as aspen, oak, and spruce. Portions of the Torch Lake Road and River Road are plowed during the winter, giving access to the trails. The rolling terrain with the variety of habitats and proximity to the Wisconsin River make this area an excellent choice for wildlife viewing.
