Welcome to Hurley Wisconsin!
We've got them in abundance. As our rivers race northward toward Lake Superior, more than 30 cascades surround the Hurley Area. Here we'll share a look at a dozen with public access in Iron County. Yet there are even more in every direction, particularly on the Black River Scenic Byway, which begins in the neighboring upper peninsula, about five miles from Hurley. Whether you come to simply look, take pictures, enjoy nature's beauty, or find the vitalized mist rising from a waterfall, where micro molecules maximally absorb atmospheric oxygen to be healthful refresher, we welcome you.More Info...
Wilderness and Wildlife
There are 377,900 acres of forest land in Iron County - 79.8% of the land. The Northern Highland - American Legion State Forest is in the southern part of the county. In addition to our own forest lands, the Hurley area is flanked by the Chequamegon National Forest and Apostle Island National Lake Shore to the west and the Ottawa National Forest and the Porcupine Mountain State Wilderness to the east, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
Surrounded by more than a million acres of private, county, state and national forests makes Hurley your perfect headquarters when planning a wilderness adventure.More Info...
All 200 miles of Iron Counrty ATV trail system is OPEN. Riders are asked to use caution during the spring riding conditions. Town may still have some routes closed to vehicular traffic, this includes ATV's, riders are asked to respect these route closures. As off trail conditions and terrain may look fun, riders are asked to stay on the trail bed. Riding in ditches or off trail can lead to trail closure particularly in wet areas and on private property. This is the report of the Iron County Forestry Department who keep a close eye on the trail system. Remember, we just want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable time.
