Area Information

Hayward has approximately 300,000 acres of forest. The Chequamegon National Forest alone is 124,000 acres. Allowing for that  “Northwoods experience”. It has over 200 miles of bike trails. Home to over 55,000 acres of lakes.

Hayward is a popular fishing destination because of the many lakes in the area which are known for yielding trophy-sized musky, northern pike, walleye and smallmouth bass.  It is also home to the “Quiet Lakes” (Teal, Ghost and Lost Land Lakes), which do not allow water sports as do the larger lakes.

Hayward is home to the national fresh water fishing Hall of Fame, which contains a 200-foot musky, the world’s largest fiberglass structure. One can climb up into the mouth of the fish, and look over the town.

Hayward is also a hot spot for deer hunting, golfing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, and biking.



Hayward is home to many festivals and events. The annual Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival is the largest gathering of off-road mountain bike riders in the world, and is the largest mass start mountain bike race in the United States. 

Participants in the annual Lumberjack World Championships compete in a variety of lumberjack games such as log rolling, chopping, sawing, and chainsaw events.

Hayward hosts the American Birkebeiner cross country skiing race.
