  • A couple cool supper clubs

    Posted on Thursday, November 21, 2013

    The best way to spend a cold winter night in Rhinelander? Lounging at a supper club and enjoying great food, drinks and company. Rhinelander has two amazing supper clubs for you to try this winter.


    • Al-Gen Dinner Club. Hang out in their cozy cocktail lounge before dining on some of the best food in the Northwoods. Choose from an extensive wine list and menu that includes top-notch steaks, all-you-can-eat Friday fish fry and nightly specials like shrimp scampi or their famous baby back ribs.
    • The Fireside Supper Club. Overlooking Town Line Lake, The Fireside offers a relaxing yet elegant Northwoods atmosphere. Specialties include their Friday fish fry, prime rib, steaks, seafood and more. Youíll be in good company with a friendly staff, so stay for a while and unwind.
  • Late Fall – Prime Time for Mountain Biking

    Posted on Monday, November 4, 2013

    Experienced mountain bikers know that some of the best riding of the year is in late fall. With the leaves off the trees, the forest looks completely different. The trails are generally dry and in very good condition. And, with few other people out on the trail, youíll feel like you have the forest all to yourself.

    The Rhinelander Area boasts some outstanding mountain biking trails. CAVOC Trails is one of the most challenging rides in the area, with lots of twists and turns and climbing. The Mud Lake Trail has both single- and double-track trails waiting to challenge you. The Washburn Lake County Trail presents riders with a whopping 15 miles of forest trails. For a more leisurely ride, try the Newbold Town Trails, which are level and well packed.

    During late fall, there might be some hunters out in the woods. As a safety precaution, itís a good idea to wear some blaze orange or other bright colors so that youíre visible. (Take the same precaution if youíre out hiking or birdwatching in the fall.)

    Now, get out there before the cross-country skiing season begins! Find trail maps and plan your own late fall mountain biking trip.
