The River of Presidents – so named because five U.S. commander-in-chiefs have stayed on or fished it – flows 44 miles through eastern Douglas County on its way to Lake Superior. Most of the river is protected by the Brule River State Forest.
The 4600-mile multistate North Country National Scenic Trail also enters Douglas County at the state forest.
Among the great day hiking trails of eastern Douglas County are:
• Bear Beach Trail
• Stoney Hill Nature Trail
• North Country National Scenic Trail
• Bois-Brule-St. Croix River Historic Portage Trail
• Brule Bog Boardwalk Trail
