Out and About
Ice Road

Ice Road Deliveries. Coco still delivers its bread and pastries after Christmas when the channel between Bayfield and Madeline Island freezes. The highway department marks a road on the ice with pine trees when the ice is strong enough. The Madeline Island Ferry transports passengers and vehicles (and Coco’s scrumptious items) from March or April until freeze-up, weather permitting. The crossing takes about 25 minutes. Once the ferries stop running for the winter, there is a passenger only windsled that travels on a limited schedule. The sled is used until the ice road is considered safe enough for cars and light trucks to travel. The sled is used again in the spring when the road is deemed unworthy of travel but the lake ice is too thick for the ferries to cut through.
