Description

"The CAMBA system has become recognized as the Singletrack Capital of the Midwest, with the most extensive system of interconnected singletrack east of the Mississippi,” according to the CAMBA Trail Guide. With over 300 miles of trail in this expansive system, it’s tough to choose a favorite trail… but the Seeley Pass and Flow Mama trails are high on the list

Seeley Pass provides flowy, serpentine singletrack that rolls through the remote Wisconsin Northwoods. Twisting between tight trees, the trail is always bench cut beautifully into the hillside or ripping downhill through a series of delightful, low berms. Flow Mama flows right out of the Seeley Pass trail, with bike-optimized singletrack that is still an absolute pleasure to hike.

These trails are some of the most attractive in the network in part because they are so remote. Aside from the occasional gravel road crossing, you’ll feel like you’re hiking in the middle of the wilderness… because in a sense, you are. The Chequamegon National Forest is extremely remote in all senses of the word. Ensure that you’re prepared for this remote hike through the woods.

Of course, it is possible to connect to a variety of other trails in the network and just keep on hiking. You could construct backpacking routes of various lengths in this 300-mile system.

Finally, if you so desire, you could set up a point-to-point shuttle to reduce the overall mileage and repetition. The options are simply endless here!
