This commentary applies to the trail between Rice Lake and Minong. Unless you have masochist tendencies this is not a trail for bicycles of any flavor. As I write this the trail surface is loose, not compacted, gravel and sand. I met a dozen ATVs on the trail but there was no evidence of use by bicycles. After fighting the sand and gravel I gave up and rode County Rode SS and Lakeside Road from Trego to Minong where possible. (Three miles of Lakeside are gravel.) The museum in Spooner is worth stopping to visit. When I stopped one of the retired railroad engineers was on duty and had numerous interesting stories of the days when the trains ran. If you should insist on riding this trail attempt it with nothing less than 2 inch tires. There are facilities at Haugan, Sarona, Trego, and Lampion in addition to Rice Lake, Spooner, and Minong but carrying extra water is recommended. It's pretty country but if I was to do it again I would get a good county map, ride the county roads, and avoid the rail trail.
