This very scenic hardwood and hemlock-lined trail offers rolling terrain on a wide twin track trail that travels around the northern perimeter of Round Lake providing a truly natural experience. Stay to the right as you travel on the trail. The loops to the northwest have sections of bog. The trail exits the woods east of Round Lake and continues on Cole’s Point Road to the intersection with Forest Road 144. A historic logging dam and interpretive signs are found near the trailhead.

ATV/UTV trails are accessible from the parking lot and travel north and west toward the Newman Springs Trail area and south and west towards the Smith Rapids picnic area and the covered bridge. A National Forest parking fee is required. You can purchase a single day pass, a multi-day pass, or an annual pass that covers a forest or region. The daily fee can be paid at the trailhead. An annual sticker or multi-day pass can be purchased at the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest office 715-762-2461 at 1170 South 4th Avenue/Highway 13 in Park Falls.
