Trip Description

Weekend of mountain biking, orienteering, and hiking for all levels through the Chequamegon National Forest Region of NW Wisconsin (Cable/Hayward). The Chequamegon Area Mountain Bike Association (CAMBA) off-road bike trail system consists of over 300 miles of marked and mapped routes through a near-wilderness area of striking beauty and peaceful solitude. This well-mapped trail system includes many routes that use singletrack paths, gravel forest roads, two-track trails, and ski trails. Lodging is a bunk in a rustic cabin or camping on our property.

We’ll leave the cities after work on Friday, it’s about a 3-hour drive to our place.

Saturday & Sunday:
Ride at your own pace on your choice of trails — the trails are well mapped and rated according to ability. | trail guide |
Practice orienteering/land navigation in the forest. We’re doing an adventure race in June and will be practicing our map reading and compass skills to prepare for the race. This will involve some hiking off trail (bushwhacking). If you’re not comfortable or interested in that, there’s plenty of ski/snowshoe trails you can hike on instead (or do more mountain biking).

Accommodations: Camping or a bunk in a rustic cabin (we ask for $20 to help with expenses). No running water; to clean up after a long day of biking, we either pay for a shower at a hotel, swim in a lake, or use a portable outdoor shower.

Food: Bring your own breakfast, lunch, and snacks. We may head to a local eatery for dinner on Saturday or we may decide to grab some groceries and have a BBQ.

Estimated cost: $20 + food/gas. Deposit: $20. Max trip size: 8-12 people willing to carpool.
