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. In the summer the Ice Age Trail supports hikers and bikers alike. Check trail sections for specific regulations regarding horse back riding.

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 bountiful.

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!

Anchored in a history of tourism and travel, the Cumberland area hosts many unique and secluded getaways. Of course, the IdleWild Resort is no longer open, but we have a few favorites that capture the idea of a home away from home for your next vacation.

Timberland Hills Farmstead– Situated just off of Cty. Rd H, this cozy, remodeled farmstead is only 15 minutes from downtown Cumberland. The house overlooks a peaceful valley in the rolling Timberland Hills. Featuring a full kitchen, two bathrooms and three bedrooms, sunny deck and high-speed internet, this will make a great retreat after a long day on one of the many local lakes.

Laird Chuch– Located up on the banks of Grenquist Lake in McKinley, approximately ten minutes from Cumberland, this is truly unique vacation experience. Enjoy beautiful secluded sunrises, long lazy afternoons and an evening stroll around the lake in this picturesque setting. A great spot to stay any time of year with ATV and snowmobile trails close by.

CoyLand Creek– Offering more than just a place to rest your head, this game preserve is sometimes better know with hunters as a location to bring their bird dogs for some practice. They offer sporting clay packages, pheasant hunts and a sporting clay league. Retire to the clubhouse for drinks post-hunt. The adjacent pavilion is a beautiful place to hold your wedding and reception, with optional side walls in case the weather turns stormy. The bunkhouse has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, conference room, kitchen and living room.
