Wisconsin Trails

Would anyone know a "beginner" off road trail I could take my jeep on in Wisconsin?

What part of Wisconsin are you from? I'm in central WI myself and I would be happy to show you some of the trails around my house if you just want to go off road. They are non-technical and quite sandy.

If you want something a bit more technical, the pipeline near Crivits, WI is really the only decent public area. I can make a trip up there for a day but I'll need to plan it out ahead of time.

If interested, you can drop me a PM or email me at zedd@charter.net

I'm in the 54457 area code; that's about a two hour drive from where you are.

There are miles of forestry trails that are used for four-wheeling in the summer and snowmobiling in the winter. They are nothing real difficult, just lots of sand.

There is another section of forestry roads called Bentley Hills which is mostly ATVs, but I have gone out there lots of times with the Jeep. Sometimes I get mean looks from some people, but the land is owned by Plum Creek forestry and is considered public land.

This past weekend since it was really warm, there were lots of ATVs out, but I did see another Jeeper out there. If you don't mind the sand, we can spend an entire day out there and cover lots of land.

Let me know what you want to do.

Thanks for the info. Maybe sometime we can go sure. I have school and work and no time for much : ( I'll keep those two places in mind and maybe take a ride when I've got spare time. Thanks. Wavey.

I was looking at joining titletownjeepers.com. They do rides up to the Pipeline quite often. Green Bay is about 30min north of me.

FWIW, there is a club called "RPM" located near the twin cities. One of the members father has land near Chetek. The club has created several trails there that range from beginner to near extreme that a well built buggy has to work at to get through. 3 or 4 times a year, they open it up to the public for a weekend. You can tent camp or bring an RV. They are a great group of guys. The place is called Apple Valley Offroad. Look it up for the 2011 dates and see some pics of some of the rigs and trails.
Unfortunately, WI doesn't offer much for good offroad trails. We live in Plover, but spend Nov -April in AZ. There are so many rock crawling trails here that it would take years to do them all. It really spoils us for when we go back home.

Check out Apple Valley. It is a fun experience. Might see you there next summer.

Lightbulb Mole Lake, Wisconsin

In 2006, the Wisconsin Off-Highway Vehicle Association (WOHVA) was granted exclusive access to over 4000acres of land on the Mole Lake Indian Reservation (located just 8 miles outside of Crandon, Wisconsin). WOHVA hosts two trail rides each summer (Northwoods-Mole Lake Jeep Jamboree USA & Great Northern Trail Ride).

Additionally, WOHVA hosts Trail Development Days numerous on weekends all summer long. In 2011, WOHVA will be hosting Trail Development Days on 10 weekends between May 1st & September 1st.

You can find more information on these trails and how you too can enjoy them on the WOHVA website. Or, email WOHVA at info@WOHVA.com

Remember, "Stay on the Trail or Stay Home!"

I'm in SE as well and own a jeep. Cool! Not much around here though unfortunately. Theres something around mole lake I've heard but that's a long drive. However, I'd do it on a long weekend type thing.

I have always liked the forest roads in the Chequamegan (SP) National forests. Not really heavy duty off road trails but dirt and drivable. Good place to take the wife and not scare her. Some have been closed in recent years. I'll have to get up to Ashland and Bayfield counties to see, but it's seven hours on the road from metro Milwaukee.
