Washburn Silent Trails

The Washburn Area Silent Sports Trails are located on Oneida County forest lands west of Rhinelander.  Perch Lake County Park hosts the main trailhead.  Trailhead features a picnic area on the shores of a spring fed lake, a warming shelter with covered outdoor patio and fireplace, and restrooms.  The 21.6 kilometers (13.4 miles) of ski trails have multiple loops and are groomed for both skate and tracked classic skiing. The hilly glacial topography is a draw for intermediate and advanced skiers, while beginners will also find moderate trails leading from the parking lot. The trail system also includes 13 miles of ungroomed and marked snowshoe trails with multiple routes to please everyone, the novice snowshoer as well as the more spirited adventurer.  These snowshoe trails are popular with fat bikers.  

There are 13 miles of professionally designed and built single track mountain bike trails and a new pump track.  The trails are designed to accommodate all skill levels, with most of the flow trails and jump lines located near the trailhead, while the more technical “old school” hand-built trails and rock gardens are furthest from the shelter. 

Note:  Snowshoes, fat bikes, foot travel, and dogs are not allowed on ski trails when they are snow covered.
