WI - Trail Query

Postby mgros483 » Fri Jan 23, 2009 10:58 am

I am looking for a good trail for a long day ski (10 miles or so) in the Chequamegon area. This will be my first trip away from the local trails, so I have no idea where to even start. I would like a trail that isn't too heavily used, as the attraction for going that far north is for some solitude. Any ideas?

P.S. I would like to bring my dogs too, so I don't know if I would be welcome on a groomer.

You may want to start by looking here:

The individual trail listings have point-of-contact info and a phone number (usually) that you can call for more info. There's quite a bit in the Hayward area, the dog thing might be a problem tho....

The dog thing will be a problem.

The Chequamegon covers a huge area so its hard to say exactly where you'll be going. If you don't need groomed trails there are several small wilderness areas around Cable that will probably have skied in tracks. Then there is this link from the sled dog people. The trail up by Cornucopia looks good but the internal link to the Northern Wisconsin Dog Mushers is dead. There are numbers to call though.

I'd give the folks at the National Forest office a call. They might be able to turn you onto something.
