Nose Lake ski and snowshoe trails are located west of Rhinelander and offer 12.5 kilometer (7.8 miles) of trail groomed for traditional tracked skiing. The trails feature gentle topography in remote county forests, making the system very popular with skiers possessing either a beginner or intermediate skill set. A most popular feature of the Nose Lake Trail is that dogs are permitted on the entire system. There is also a portable restroom in the parking area.
The Nose Lake trails also feature multiple snowshoe routes totaling 2.3 miles, blazed through balsam forests, oak and maple ridges, and stands of aspen, white and red pine.
The east and west loops of the Nose lake ski trails are mowed periodically throughout the summer months. The west loop is most popular and offers 3 miles of hiking and biking on gentle topography. The east loop is 5 miles and is also hiked by many.
