Trail Description
About this trail
These are great single track trails located in a state forest. Some technical parts, but most riders will be able to find a track that suites them. They are a series of loops, with a ten-mile track being the longest. There is also a five mile connector trail that connects to another series of trails - the Emma Carlin trails. Considering the area, these are the best trails for single track riding in this area of the state!

Q: how long does it take roughly for these trails to dry up a decent amuont after a day of rain? -Guest

A: a day or two after rain most parts of the trail will be dry. Certain sections will remain wet and muddy for days. You will be able to enjoy, just beware of the muddy sections.

Review: The blue trail is intense! Logs, plenty of medium sized rocks, sand and 4 real good hills! You sure can't take your eyes off the trail for long or you re going down!

Review: In a word, awesome. These trails are extensive, well labeled and carefully maintained and it all adds up to a great experience. They offer a variety of difficulties from beginner to expert so no matter your skill level there is something for you. Some of the obstacles include rock gardens, bridges and fallen logs, both avoidable and unavoidable. There are numerous uphills as well as fast downhills and even a few sand traps. I enjoyed these trails immensely and would recommend them to anyone.

Review: 4th of July ride with my brothers. Haven't rode these trails in years. I love the variety of terrain and the ability to mix and match the different trails for how far and how difficult a ride you want to do! The only thing I wasn't quite prepared for was to need an annual Wisconsin State Park tag ($38 out of state) or day permit ($11 out of state) to enter the park and an annual trail pass ($25) or day pass ($5) for every rider over 16. Other than that the facilities were nice, the trails fairly well maintained and the maps and trail markings were easy to follow. We rode a combination of the blue, green and orange trails totalling in at just over 9 miles. Great combination of smooth flow and tight technical single track!

Review: Grew up riding these trails and still get out on them as much as possible. Nothing very technical here, just some easily navigable rock gardens in the back of the blue loop. Come out for the fall colors race at the end of September each year for a great ride

Review: Fun system of trails with varying difficulties. Great singletrack that is well marked. Only downside really is that you have to pay to ride it unless you have a Wisconsin State trail pass and and Wisconsin State Park sticker.

Review: Agree with Jared, deducted star for cost of non resident. Trails were very well maintained and is a very popular trail in WI. Thought it flowed well and was very well marked. Mutliple level trails and a connector to near by trails makes for about 28 miles of trails.
