The Pine Line Bike Trail

 share this article

The Pine Line is a 26 mile rail trail in north central Wisconsin. It is surrounded by the dense forests of Chequamegon National Forest and wilderness hunting camps set into the hilly and textured landscape of terminal moraine. The route runs from Medford to Prentice on a retired Wisconsin Central Railroad line which was famous for transporting white pine from the lumber baron days up until 1988. Near Timms Hill - the highest elevation in Wisconsin - the Pine Line intersects with the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. A number of rustic campsites and RV campgrounds are near to the trail.
