Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest

Chute Pond Overlook Trail

This short, moderately steep trail leads to the top of a rock outcrop that features five vistas. Three of the vistas overlook Chute Pond, one looks over a Forest Service tree plantation, and one looks north along State Highway 32 with Bagley Rapids on the west and Green Lake on the east. At the northernmost vista, look north to see the last remaining Forest Service fire lookout tower almost six miles away at Mountain. Looking south from the southernmost vista you can see the radio tower on Suring Hill, about eight miles away. Be sure to bring your binoculars on this hike!

Directions: From the town of Mountain, take State Highway 32 south for 3-1/2 miles to Parkway Drive and turn right (west). Follow the signs to Scenic Overlook.

Trail Length: 2/3 mile.

Difficulty: Moderate to difficult.
