    I found this trail to be unremarkable compared to the many others in the area. It is classic old-school rocky terrain. It is similar to Makwa. If you only have a few days in the area, I'd skip this one. However, if you're looking to do a point to point between Cable & Hayward, this one is necessary, and it's interesting to see the character of this one compared to others.

    I really liked this trail. Plenty of roots and rocks to keep you on your toes. Loop took me about and hour but advanced riders will be able to do it far less time. Try to hit it in the fall when the colors are best and the mosquitoes are mostly gone. Looking forward to exploring more CAMBA trails.

    Fun, challenging trail. Was just able to ride a small portion of it as the wife was with me and she's still learning. Rocky and rooty for sure. Well maintained and marked. Looking forward to checking it out again for a more extended ride.

    Very enjoyable and slightly challenging single track trail. It was in excellent condition. They built up some sections that made it a very fun ride with small jumps if you were comfortable with that. But still very appropriate intermediate trail.

    This 8 ½ mile loop runs along either side of the Birkie ski trail and relieves you of the relentlessly unforgiving climbs that the ski trail has to offer. It allows you to gradually climb and descend the glacial terrain of the Chequamegaon forest. With trailheads at either end and numerous points that interconnect the north and southbound trails there are plenty of options to modify this ride if you don't have the time or the inclination to do the whole thing. CAMBA has made numerous improvements to the trail over the years to improve the flow and sustainability. It just keeps getting better and better.
