Gil Larsen Nature Trail/Iron Bridge Trail
Distance: .75 miles
Trail Difficulty: Easy
Owned/managed by City of Bayfield
This quaint trail follows the Big Ravine Forest’s stream under an old iron bridge to an overlook. This trail's namesake, Gilbert Larsen, grew up near the ravine and harbored a life-long interest in the wise use and management of natural resources as a conservationist. The trail offers a first-hand look at conservation as the trees have regrown following the ravine flood of 1942.
Directions: Travel uphill from the ferry-boat landing on Washington Avenue in Bayfield. You’ll see the Iron Bridge and parking area on your right. Trail starts at the sign near the parking area.
