Lumberjack Trail

Average Rating:    (3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 1

this is hike/bike/ski state system of loops near north parking lot, but the best thing about it is the long single track (12k or miles?) that runs south all the way to join the Escanaba lake trail. it starts as a wider grassy lane but then there is a section of true single track that has some hills & is one of the best i've ever ridden, very scenic, part along a lake and thru evergreens.

Summary:
Lumberjack Trail winds through some gorgeous wooded areas, around a dam, up through the largest sandtrap in northern Wisconsin, and then in a breathtaking route around White Sand Lake. Fast downhills, mostly grass with mud and sand here and there. Moderate difficulty. Mosquitoes draft you through the woods and come for lunch if you slow or stop: hordes of mosquitoes rise from the marshes around the lakes. Very hilly with steep drops and rises. Multiple loops for a full day's ride. Poorly marked -- bring a compass or GPS. Half our Boy Scout troop took the wrong turn and wound up on a different loop

Recommended Route:
Up to Fishtrap Dam, then down and back up to the east to White Sands Lake. The ride around the rim of the lake with a very steep drop off at the edge of the trail keeps you alert.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Escanaba and Razorback Ridge.
