Cable, Wisconsin - Fun in the Forest
In the midst of the Chequamegon National Forest lies the Cable Area of Northwest Wisconsin. Over three hundred miles of mapped and marked trails are here for the outdoor enthusiast. It's not unusual to sight deer, bear, porcupine, bald eagles, and other forest animals. The fall colors begin in late August and reach their splendid peak near the end of September. Most trails in the system are ideal for mountain biking from May through November, almost 7 months of fat tire fun! Hayward's unique setting and northwoods appeal make it an ideal destination. Breathe in the fresh air and relax in the beautiful Northwoods, or challenge yourself with one of many outdoor sport activities the Area has to offer. Or if its fishing you're into, Sawyer County is the place!
The temperatures are falling and the excitement is rising for skiers, spectators, volunteers and area residents looking forward to the 2006 American Birkebeiner. The Cable - Hayward area is home to North America's largest and most prestigious cross-country ski marathon and half-marathon, along with various sprints and other festivities. Over 9000 skiers will wind thru
some of the hilliest terrain in the Midwest, beginning near Cable and ending at Hayward approximately 51 grueling kilometers later.
