WISCONSIN NEWS ROUNDUP: Still too soggy for hikers and campers to enjoy Wisconsin's only national forest
It's too soggy for hikers and campers to enjoy Wisconsin's only national forest. Officials say ground moisture remains excessive at the Chequamegon-Nicolet (shuh-wah'-meh-gn nick-o-lay) Forest in the Northwoods. Trails in the Lakewood-Laona district could open May 15th if things dry up quickly. Otherwise, all trails will stay closed until about May 22nd. The Chequamegon-Nicolet covers one-and-a-half million acres ranging from Bayfield to Oconto counties.
