Rainbow Lake was one of the first wildernesses designated in 1975. The total area encompasses 6,583 acres, located 4 miles north of Drummond, Wis. in Bayfield County. Among the unique features of this wilderness are the numerous narrow gauge railroad grades that were used for log hauling in the early 1900’s. The North Country National Scenic Trail, which runs the length of the wilderness, follows parts of these old grades. The trail is marked at difficult intersections. The terrain in the area is flat to gentle rolling, and steep hills can be found north, east and northwest corner of the wilderness. Fishing opportunities can be found at Wishbone, Clay, Reynard and Beaver Lakes. Wildlife is abundant, so bring your binoculars and cameras!
