Watersmeet to Land O'Lakes Trail

Rough Riders Wanted!

August, 2020 by tahess55

This is an ATV trail that “ doubles” as a bike trail. If you are a glutton for punishment, this is the trail for you. Ruts, loose sand, gravel, rocks, potholes. This trail has them all! We only went a short way, and decided cowardice was better than valor. Such a shame, because I am guessing it would be great scenery. Found a much better trail to ride further down Highway B.

Three Eagle Trail

Favorite Trail in the Area

August, 2020 by csyke_tl

We love the section that starts south of Eagle River a few miles off Sundstein Road at the gravel trailhead. It goes for 5 amazing miles through some beautiful wetlands and forests and then pops out on a busier road on the 3 Lakes side. This is usually where we turn around (5 miles out and back is enough for my 5th grade daughter).

Conover-Phelps Trail

Great trail- can’t wait for the last 2 miles

August, 2020 by csyke_tl

We run and bike on this trail all the time. It is pretty flat. Crushed gravel. We leave from the current Phelps trailhead and run/bike toward Conover. Typically we are 5 miles out and 5 miles back. My son loves the trail for high school cross country training. It is 2020 now and the last 2 miles to the ice cream store in Phelps still isn’t done. But hopefully soon!

Wolf River State Trail

bad trail

July, 2020 by jolenemoran

Loose thick gravel

Three Eagle Trail

Great Trail

July, 2020 by tgrischow

Trail is very well maintained. The short stretch on a low traveled road is the most challenging part due to the steeper hills. The rest of the trail has gentle hills.

Conover-Phelps Trail

Missed out on ice cream

July, 2020 by ttschida65

Had a great ride, started in Phelps and ended at the “Boathouse” in Conover, but closed on Monday’s so settled for my bottle of water and carrots.

Conover-Phelps Trail

Nice Surprise in Conover

June, 2020 by tahess55

We had a beautiful day for a ride. We found the trail of crushed stone was packed and easy to pedal. Only complaint is the deer flies! But hey....we are in the Northwoods, so you have to expect some bugs. They weren’t horrible. We just pedaled faster! Wild scenery. Plenty of shade. Loved the wetland irises and other flowers. It was peaceful and quiet. All in all, a good ride. A nice little park in Conover provided a goid picnic lunch spot We will do this again sometime.

Wolf River State Trail

Lily to Hollister

June, 2020 by blwalsh84

Rode with hybrid bikes and did fine. No sign of ATV use on this portion now. Could be in a little better shape, but it is pretty and remote, and the sounds of the rapids from the Wolf river was a happy bonus. The trees down in the woods from the tornado in 2019 was devastating.

Nicolet State Trail

Only for ATVs

January, 2020 by brandonorser88

Gravel was so deep it was not possible to ride on it. Only seems realistic for ATV vehicles which we saw plenty of. We needed to reroute our course because we could not ride on this trail.

Wolf River State Trail

Wonderful Trail

August, 2019 by calkins.william

A wonderful trail. I rode 700x40 tires. Starting in Crandon will test if you brought big enough tires. A few miles out it isn't very chunky rock. Overall, well worth the ride.

Iron Ore Heritage Trail

Uphill climb

July, 2019 by chipper53

I rode the Iron Ore trail from downtown Marquette west on a rented hybrid bike. I was unprepared for the constant upward grade. Once the trail turned from paved to gravel, it got more challenging. After about an hour, covered with sweat, I was still short of Negaunee, so I turned back. I coasted every one of many miles back, never pedaling, and always with the brake ready. If you're looking for a workout, this trail is for you. It isn't what I wanted on a hot July day.

I did appreciate the historic signage along the trail. It seems that the grade was deliberate. Iron ore would be loaded, first on a plank road, then on rail cars, and easily transported downhill to the port. Then empty cars would go back uphill for another load. Makes sense!

Iron Ore Heritage Trail

Great vacation activity

July, 2019 by rbzweigoron

Rode from Ishpenning to the Iron Ore History Museum and back. The trail is paved, well maintained, shady and secluded with little traffic on a Tuesday morning in July. There is one long, moderate grade from the museum back toward Ishpenning but doable with good gears even for this elder amatuer. Signage for jogs through towns could be better but Google maps will set you straight.

West End Ski and Trail in Ishpenning were great for renting bikes. Excellent bikes and service and a friendly, home town, experience.
