With more than 1,300 lakes and nearly a quarter million acres of wild forests, there’s no shortage of gorgeous scenery to discover in Vilas County. In the winter, snow-laden pines frame frozen glacial lakes throughout Wisconsin’s Northwoods. In the spring, wildflowers and migratory birds begin to emerge in the forest. Lush trees and sparkling lake views appear in the summer before giving way to some of the most spectacular fall colors in the Midwest. Here are some road routes you can follow to experience the beauty of northern Wisconsin for yourself.
