Eat Local!

Many of us wait all year for the much too brief Farmer’s Market season, but it is upon us! Running now through September and some years into October when the harvest is good.  Always on Saturday mornings from 8AM to 12PM in the parking lot behind Cumberland Public Library, this small market draws a big crowd! Support local farmers, community members and pick up more than just your veggies here! Varying from week to week some times including baked goods, jewelry, candles and soap it’s worth it to stop every week to make sure you don’t miss anything!

Barron, WI has a comparable market that is open Thursdays from 2-8 at the Country Lane Pantry, an all year business that is gracious to invite others to hawk their wares. Come on down with an empty stomach and your reusuable grocery bags and leave fully satisfied! More information on this can be found here.

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. 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!

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!
