Auto & Motorcycle Tours

The Turtle-Flambeau Scenic Waters Area Auto Tour is a self guiding tour illustrating the interactions of humans with our native flora and fauna. This tour will give you a glimpse of the spectacular resources of the area. Management programs that will insure the future of these resources are explained. The tour is 24 miles long and has fifteen stops.


Turtle-Flambeau Scenic Waters Area Auto Tour booklets [PDF 3.4MB] are available at the Mercer Ranger Station and may also be found in the literature box on the kiosk at the Little Turtle Waterfowl Management Area parking lot – this site is the first stop on the tour.

A circle tour around the entire Turtle Flambeau Flowage is approximately 125 miles and will take you into the communities of Mercer, Springstead, Park Falls and Butternut. This scenic tour is especially nice in the fall when the trees in the forests are at their peak color. The leaves begin to change in September and typically peak around October 1st.
