The Nicolet – Wolf River Scenic Byway


The Nicolet – Wolf River Byway is located in the heart of the majestic Nicolet National Forest and home to the headwaters of the pristine, boulder-strewn Wolf River. Here you’ll discover communities where life moves at a slower pace and centers around time-honored traditions and values.

Discover beautiful scenery dotted with quiet vistas and trails, a historic logging train being pulled by steam engine, homemade food and crafts, Northwoods apparel, and brightly colored regalia at the center of many local festivals. Enjoy the rich blend of culture with Native American pow wows, Polish Heritage Days, Kentuck Day, and Art in the Square. Hear the peaceful quiet and the occasional sounds of northern wildlife: loons on a quiet morning waking the early fog from the lake, barn owls piercing the quiet of a moonlit night, or the rustle of leaves as you and a white-tailed deer cross paths. Experience the amazing diversity of birds, wildlife, fish and wild edibles of the Chequamegon Nicolet National Forest.

Amid the relaxing atmosphere and peaceful scenery you’ll find a unique blend of attractions: gaming, entertainment, food and shopping, trails and sports that make the Wolf River/Nicolet area a favorite vacation destination for all ages. The Wolf River/ Nicolet area is where you will experience a sense of place, where the people and nature are authentic.
