Blue Lake Road skirts many scenic Northwoods' lakes while wandering through thick pine and hardwood forests. This route crosses a railroad bed that was used in the 1800s as a main line to Minocqua. It has now been converted to the Bearskin State Trail for hiking, bicycling and snowmobiling. Where Blue Lake Road intersects the Tomahawk River, you'll find an ideal spot for launching a canoe. The Northwood's beauty continues along Mercer Lake Road as it travels across two small creeks, through cedar lowlands and dense pine and hardwood forests before intersecting with WI 70.
