Black River State Forest – Mountain Biking Heaven

Monday, August 12, 2013

The Black River State Forest is an incredible wilderness area. At nearly 70,000 acres, it is home to a wide variety of wildlife, from Karner blue butterflies to timber wolves. It’s also an exciting place to mountain bike.

Mountain bikers will find 29 miles of trails. There are two trailheads for the trail system – the Wildcat Lot at the midpoint of the trail system and the Smrekar Lot at the southern end of the trail system. Most of the trail system is graded as “Intermediate” level riding, with about ten miles of trails rated “Difficult.” The most challenging stretch of trail is the Wildcat loop at the northernmost end of the system.

What makes the mountain bike trails in the Black River State Forest so special is the scenery. The trails are located in what is perhaps the most beautiful section of the forest. Weathered pines, rock outcroppings and quiet forest glades await you around every corner.

Don’t miss this outstanding mountain biking opportunity. Learn more about the trails.
