Awassa Trail, St Germain, WI. New Year’s Day 2022!

The Awassa trails are by far our favorite winter hiking spot!

What can I say but the Awassa trails are amazing! The trails are wide, easy to hike, mainly flat, and the forest is absolutely incredible. I’ll include what Vilas County has to say:

LENGTH:1.0 to 4.4 mi

LOCATION:From the intersection of Hwy 155 & Hwy 70 in St. Germain, continue west on Hwy 70 approximately .5 miles to Eaglewatch Ct Rd. Turn right, then continue 200 feet to Trailhead Way. Turn right on Trailhead Way and continue to trailhead at end of road. A second parking area is located behind the elementary school.

An easy/beginner trail offering a system of level, shaded trails that meander through stands of mature pines, oaks, maples, and a rich understory of balsam fir. Hiking loops of varied length provide for pleasurable walking. During the winter, the portions of the trail system that do not coincide with the snowmobile trail are available for walking, snowshoeing, skiing, and fat tire biking. Biking is only allowed in the winter season.

The trail has a sense of history. Maybe it’s the size of the canopy but you almost feel like you walked back in time.

The forest here has incredible healing power!

I don’t know how to describe it but it’s true, the forest here has incredible healing power. The trail system winds through some seriously old mature growth, and it does 馃挴 feel like you stepped back in time.

The Awassa Trails are quiet, wide, easy to hike and more than anything peaceful. In summer, the sunsets here are unreal. The sun peaks through the trees and lights up the forest with warm colors that will make your heart sing. In winter you hear wildlife and your feet on the snow……that’s it.

The forest can turn your perspective around completely!

When is the last time you hiked in winter? If it’s been a while I highly suggest you start here. The Awassa trail is easy and can be done without snowshoes. It’s 157 miles from Green Bay, just under a 3 hour drive. There are so many places to stay in the area. You can make a great weekend away to recharge.

There is nothing better than a cabin, a fireplace, some time in the woods, and great food and drink with your best friend, partner, or your family. It can turn your month around, give you energy, recharge you and put you at ease all at the same time!

We come up all the time in winter to just rest and recharge. Being in the woods takes away my stress. Breathing the cool fresh air feeds your soul and your body. The quiet puts me at ease. I have a feeling a lot of that is my increasing age LOL! I wish I was there right now. As I grow older there is literally nothing I want more than to enjoy the forest and be in a peaceful setting.

NOTHING brings me more happiness and more peace than the forest and it’s calm soothing and tranquil way.

Todays Adventure

Today we are headed to the Boulder Lake area. We decided just last minute to take a hike, get out, and take a drive. There is nothing I love more than bundling up, throwing on my favorite stocking hat, and loading up the Jeep. Steve got not only one, but two solo stove fire pits for Christmas, so I’m sure we are gonna bring one of those along too.

The forest heals, it renews, and it gives more than it takes. If you have time to give back I highly recommend doing so. There are so many ways you can make a difference to the forest, our state, and how we treat the earth.

Have an incredible weekend. Thanks for reading and subscribing! I appreciate you guys so much. I’m working on a “winter fun” page to give you all tips on things to do to get us to April. Winter can be long. But if you choose to enjoy it and get out more I promise it makes a huge difference. I love the snow, I don’t need 6 feet, but the snow is beautiful and clean. It also has healing power. It provides a fresh new canvas each time it comes. Let it give you a fresh start each time it falls…………

Sending you ALL peace and good vibes, make today a GREAT ONE~ Amy
