“A one-way route hitting the best of Namakagon, Rock Lake Trail, Danky Dank, Esker Trail and Ojibwe.”— Josh Miner
It starts at the Wilson Lake TH with some easy-ish old-school singletrack riding on the Namakagon cluster and then hits some of the most technical riding in the CAMBA system on Rock Lake Trail, including the Hildebrand Lake Loop. The transition from the two sections (Namakagon to Rock Lake then to Treasures' Trace) can be very confusing, and although there are often YAH maps at junctions, I have found that they don't exist when you really need them, so come prepared with navigation aids—the MTB Project mobile app is very helpful here!
Next, comes the Treasures' Trace, Danky Dank, and Esker Trail connection (long, remote, technical, flowy in spots, with rock gardens and just plain rocks). Probably the most remote section in the CAMBA system and arguably the most technical (and potentially dangerous). Bring tools and even a small med kit. Cell reception is spotty at best.
Take a short connection via Forest Service roads to the Ojibwe loop with the new gravity downhill flow section included (Corkscrew Downhill), then back around the Ojibwe loop clockwise (my favorite direction to ride). Another intersection to navigate is at the Flow Mama Trail junction, but that is clearly signed. Make sure you know which direction you are riding on the Ojibwe loop, or you might end up lost and pop out at the Telemark resort.
Expect to find just about every kind of riding on this trail. I'd say about 70% of it is old-school hand-built (maybe half of that intermediate level and the other half advanced), 25% new-school machine-built flow, and 5% doubletrack/logging road garbage/forest road.
The ride ends at the North End trailhead.
