Description
Wisconsin is a premier backpacking state, with outstanding opportunities for weekend trips. With its Great Lakes and river boundaries, national and state parks and forests, and stunning geological diversity, it offers a variety of experiences for both novice and experienced backpackers. In Backpacking Wisconsin Jack and Liz Hailman, drawing on years of experience, provide first-hand information for trails in every corner of the state -- from the wooded Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, inhabited by whitetailed deer and black bears, to picturesque Newport State Park in Door County, set upon Silurian-age limestone laid down over 100 million years ago.

For each backpacking site you'll find:
-- directions for getting there plus information on entrance fees and permits, campsites, and contact sources
-- detailed trail maps with keys that pinpoint roads, parking, trail shelters, water supplies, outhouses
-- ratings for trails, scenery, quiet, solitude, and interest
-- background information on history, geology, and terrain
-- trail notes describing trees, shrubs, wildflowers, birds, and animals you may encounter

Backpacking Wisconsin also provides an overview of the backpacking experience, tips for the beginner and the expert, hints on how to choose equipment (boots, packs, tents, sleeping bags, rain gear, stoves), notes on troublesome plants and animals, schedules of fees, a checklist for backpacks, and a list of trail, outdoor, and conservation organizations. All you have to do is pick a trail!
