Langlade County offers over 106 miles of scenic trails that take you
through the diverse landscapes of Langlade County! The trail system has four main corridors that connect through various road routes. While on the trails you’ll encounter rolling hills, glacial moraines, northern hardwood forests, swamps and picturesque views of lakes and rivers.
Starting Monday July 24, at 12pm the ATV trail from Fraley Road (Intersection 43) east to Highway 64, and the ATV trail from Badger Ranch Road to intersection 44 will be closed for a major trail rehabilitation project. These trails will remain closed until further notice.
