    awesome mountain biking withen 20 minutes, wabash lake, its a county run trail system very techy singletrack, raven (haven ridden there in a few years) but im pretty sure they have added alot of trail, razerback ridges, it got logged 2 summers ago but there is still decent trails (i havent been there since last summer tho so there might be good trails being made this spring) all withen 20 minutes driving distance, i believe there is a few more too but those are a good start

    We’ve ridden a few of the trails listed above and think highly of them. But iIf you’d like to push yourself to do something very different, drive a tad north and check out trails within the Keweenaw Peninsula of Mi. That is Copper Harbor, Michigan tech, Churning Rapids or Swedetown. We live within a few blocks of tech but amongst the locations just listed are over 150 miles of IMBA built single track.

    Melt-

    You did not get a job with Bob and Sue did you? Only 7 week camp I know cause my parents found it and sent all 3 boys in the summer. When I went there weren't MTB's so to speak. Went back later and it looked like many trail systems were added. I guess if there are snowmobile trails there are XC bike trails as well.

    What cabin did you get and what is your sport specialty?

    My main contacts have been 2 guys, named mike and john. Sounds like it could be the same camp though, cause from what i understand the first 2 weeks we are training and the campers show up mid june.

    Im not a counselor, im doing maintenance ... they told me id be in some sort of staff cabin but i dont know all the details on that yet. They say ill have internet access in the evenings sometimes so hopefully ill be able to still post on here and put up pictures and stuff.

    Yup- RAC or Red Arrow Camp. As a kid that is a long time.

    If you are not working directly with kids then you do get out every night. You also get off time to do what you want. Enjoy the time up in the north woods.

    Remember - It is a beautiful day at Red Arrow...........

    When at the mess hall look up to the 2 paddle 1984 Canadian Trip. My brother was a "cookie" for one summer as well.

    I went to the smokin spoke trails over memorial day weekend. Great trail system. Has a great combination of rocks sections, hills, ridgelines with some secluded northern wisconsin views, and the pine forest is pretty cool. It says pine forest on the map, but when you are riding through the "wart" on the ridge, look north and you can see the change into pines. Then when you actually enter at the bottom of the hill, it is a fairly level, light rollercoaster, which towards the end of the trail allows for some easy speed through the "storm trooper speeder" section of the trail. I parked at fire number 5061 off of crystal lake road. There is a little cleared area to park and trail head is right there with a post.
    I went the day before the rasta rally and the course was already posted. I unknowingly took the full 15 mile expert loop which continued after the pines into the adjoining scout camp. Make sure you print a map. The trails are not marked when there is no race, and becomes a forest with overgrown logging roads, deer paths and numerous single tracks overlapping.
    I went to the bike and boards bike shop and the kid there recommended this as the best trail near rheinlander, though gave a nod to razorback and raven as well.
    have fun.

    check out the following site: http://lamboriders.org/

    when i'm up in woodruff i generally ride raven just because it's so close, and now because of the new sweet singletrack, so good! also, last time i was up there, about 2 weeks ago, i spoke with a local rider and he informed me that razorback has all been logged out. sorry to tell you.
