The eastern side of Wisconsin’s Douglas County offers a diverse array of day hiking trails, most of them centered on the famous Bois Brule River.

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
