The 45th Annual American Birkie

Thursday, 2/21 through Sunday, 2/24 2019

It’s that time once again! Snow enthusiasts and cold weather lovers alike gather for one of Wisconsin’s biggest celebrations. Thousands flock to the Hayward area to participate in this iconic event. Whether it be for fun or to seriously compete, we strongly encourage you to make it up there at some point in your life and experience the fun for yourself.

The American Birkebiner Ski Foundation has a wonderfully insightful, easy to navigate website that answers just about any question a spectator or participant could think to ask. From detailed maps of the race course, bussing routes and schedules of the events, I strongly suggest you check out their website here.

Timberland Trail: Timberland Hills is located about 9 miles Northwest of Cumberland, WI on County Highway H. This 24 Km trail system situated on 2400 wooded acres of Burnett County forest land. From gentle rolling terrain to the screaming hills of “The Ridge Run” and the “Outer Loop”, Timberland Hills offers fun and excitement for the beginning hiker and skier to the expert.

The Ice Age Trail is just north of Cumberland.  See here for more info on the ice age.

The Gandy Dancer Trail: Separated into a north half and south half, this trail runs from St. Croix all the way to Superior. Arguably one of the most traveler friendly trails in the upper portion of the state, it meanders through many small towns and hosts marathons and 5k’s throughout the year. One notable stop on the trail is Café Wren, locally owned and operated. Established on the old railway tracks, it accommodates hikers, bikers and ATV/UTV enthusiasts alike, just remember to get the appropriate permits before hitting the trail! More information can be found here.

The Stower Seven Lakes Trail: Trail heads in both Amery and just south of Dresser, WI make accessing this trail very user friendly. Supported by the county, DNR and a private group, this is a great trail for beginners. A group meets every Saturday morning at a different point in the trail, hikes for an hour or so and in true Northerner fashion, breaks for coffee and donuts at a local establishment. Enjoy views of multiple lakes, prairies, farmland and wetlands throughout the 14 mile stretch from a well groomed former railroad bed. Check out their very informative website here for more details!

Beaver Dam Lake

At 1163 acres, there’s plenty of room to accommodate fishing boats, pontoons, canoes, standup paddleboards and speed boats. Adored by locals and out-of-towners alike, quiet bays mixed with a lengthy stretch of straight lake offer something for everyone. While we’ll never tell where our favorite fishing spots are, we can tell you that you’ll find panfish, bass and walleye in the lake.

Feeling Idle? take a paddle board onto Norwegian Bay and enjoy quiet waters as you tour the “other half” of town. More Wild? launch the speed boat and tubes and scream down the western half of the lake!
