Join the NCTA Chequamegon Chapter on this hike that features an overlook at Upson Lake, an easy trail along the Potato River, a look at the Tilted Gabbro Campsite, Foster Falls and the Sullivan Fire Road, an unbridged road across the Potato River. There are no bathrooms. You will want to dress for the weather and bugs, wear a hat, bring bug repellant (perhaps a bug net), water, lunch, and a snack. Consider trekking poles, too. If you want to do half this hike, contact Kevin Schram and he will try to arrange for a shuttle:

  • Distance is approximately 8.5 miles out-and-back, or 4.2 miles one way.
  • Leader: Kevin Schram
