Ashland Mural Walk
Numerous beautiful public murals depicting actual people, places, and events from Ashland County’s rich history. From Butternut in southern Ashland County to Madeline Island in northern Ashland County. Ashland County has become a public art destination that is not weather-dependent. Our vibrant murals can be seen 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year!
It's a small, self-guided, one-room, museum in downtown Mellen. It's worth a stop and it's great for a rainy day, if you're interested in the town's history. It tells the story of local residents, the industry that came and went and it gives you a good understating of what life was like in the North woods 100 years ago. Plan for about 30 minutes -1 hour.
Copper Falls State Park
Spectacular waterfalls make Copper Falls State Park one of Wisconsin's most scenic parks. Log buildings built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s add to the park's charm. The park offers camping, hiking, bicycling, picnicking, fishing and swimming opportunities in Loon Lake. The 1.7-mile Doughboy's Nature Trail, along the Bad River, is one of the best hikes in Wisconsin.
