Silvernail Wildlife Area

This beautiful wild tract in northcentral Rusk County spans 1,040 acres. The habitat consists of hardwood and hemlock forest and is home to a tributary of the Thornapple River. It's a good place for birding, backcountry cross-country skiing and hiking. There's also a marked snowmobile trail on the property. Trappers will find productive habitat and hunters can pursue deer, bear, ruffed grouse, squirrels, rabbits and raccoon on the property. Access on the southern side of the wildlife area is possible via Flambeau Road.
