Hiking & Biking

Follow the path of a former railroad corridor; the 98-mile Gandy Dancer Recreational Trail passes through the heart of Burnett County. With a limestone surface and level grade, the Gandy Dancer, aptly named after the railroad workers, is a great trail for any level of enthusiast. Hikers and bikers will find the scenic trail as it runs through Siren, Webster and Danbury and heads even further north towards Superior.

In addition to the Gandy Dancer, Burnett County boasts over 75 miles of cross country skiing, snowshoeing and hiking trails. From Brandt Pines and Sand Rock Cliff Trails to the west, to the plentiful trails in the east, those looking for a scenic path can find it in Burnett County.

The newest addition to the extensive trail system is the Jordan Buck Heritage Hike – a self guided walking tour of Jim Jordan’s legendary hunt. Follow the trail 1.3 miles down the Gandy Dancer, starting at Blueberry Junction Park in Danbury.
