Features -none-

Stay off the ski trails and please stay on the “bike lane” part of the trail on shared-use sections. This trail is for winter use only when snow covered. One Way Only: This is designated as a directional trail.

Overview

This is a great almost nine-mile long ride on the most technical trails being groomed in the area. This ride has a lot of rolling hills, a couple switchbacks, and a few trickier off-camber sections, but it is really fun on a fatbike. There are some nice climbs and some fun downhills that could be sketchy if icy.

Need to Know

Sawbill Saloon in Seeley is less than a mile away.

Description

The small trailhead parking lot (three cars) is located just east of Highway 63 on County Road OO in Seeley, WI.

From the Uhrenholdt access off OO road head south along the Uhrenholdt TH Connector. This will drop you down by the intersection of Lukey Loop and Ridge Rider. Take a left onto Lukey Loop and follow it for about three miles. As you head south on Lukey Loop, you'll ascend the biggest (and steepest) hill in the trail system less then a mile into the ride.

After passing Caleb Crash and Caleb Cutoff, the trail bends southeast as it winds through the woods. Be aware of the criss crossing ski trails that cut across your path; make sure to stay on the biking/shared-use trails. The trail turns back southwest for a short distance before ending at the junction with the ski trail and Pinball.

Pinball begins the rather circuitous journey north before becoming Snowshoe Ridge. As Snowshoe Ridge bends east, you'll be faced with numerous ski trails. Stay right on the biking/shared use trail. Make your way onto Fawn Trail. This is one of the more technical sections of trail. As you wind back north, the trail becomes Deer Stand and begins to intersect with numerous ski trails again.

Shortly, you'll find yourself on Caleb Crash heading north. There is a short cutoff (Caleb Cutoff) that you can take if you want to make another loop on the southern section. Otherwise stay left to the junction with Ridge Rider. Stay left again to jump on Ridge Rider, which, despite initially taking you back south, will bring you back to the junction with Uhrenholdt TH Connector and the parking lot.

Although the trail crosses the ski trails regularly as it winds around through the forest, the path is pretty well-marked with winter only signs to guide you.

Trail signage is very good. YAH on map is not a really fun section but You Are Here.
