Land O’ Lakes could easily be called “Land O’ Trails.” The community’s 12-mile Bike/Pedestrian Trail provides some of the best hiking and biking in the Northwoods. The community is also a popular jumping-off point for adventures on the woodland trails that run through the Sylvania Wilderness. This pristine tract of forest attracts primitive campers, birdwatchers and mountain bikers.
