The Mountain Bike Capital of the Midwest

CAMBA Mountain Bike Trail System - Singletrack Capital of the Midwest

Welcome to the premier system of mountain bike trails in the Midwest, located in and around the beautiful Chequamegon National Forest region of Northwest Wisconsin.

The Chequamegon Area Mountain Bike Association off-road bike trail system consists of over 300 miles of marked and mapped routes through a near-wilderness area of striking beauty and peaceful solitude. The CAMBA system is quickly becoming the Singletrack Mecca of the Midwest, with more singletrack trail being constructed every year. CAMBA's vision of a linked system of singletrack trails connecting Hayward, Seeley, Cable and Namakagon was achieved in 2016. Additional enhancements and improvements to our world-class trail system continue to be implemented to provide the best possible mountain biking experience.

The Fifth Annual Fat Bike Race After Party fundraiser after the Fat Bike Birkie on Saturday, March 11, 2017 was an unqualified success.  Not only did everyone have a great time, but the event raised over $8,000 in support of continued trail improvements and grooming for winter biking.  Thanks to everyone who turned out and purchased raffle tickets or bid during the silent auction.

And a special thanks to the Sawmill Saloon in beautiful downtown Seeley, the gracious and generous host for the event. Thanks Cindy & Drew for all your help.

And a BIG thanks to the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation presenter of the Fat Bike Birkie for their tremendous cooperation and support of this event. THANKS!

Big Fat Race = BIG FAT FUN

Forty fat bikers can now consider themselves Big Fat Race Founders after their participation in the inaugural Seeley Big Fat Race on Sunday, January 22. Presented by CAMBA’s Fat Bike Committee, the organizers were very happy with the turnout and positive responses from the riders. The race had to be rescheduled from January 22 when warm conditions and rain rendered the trails too soft to ride. Cooling temperatures and a little snow made for great race conditions this past weekend.

The emphasis on the race was fun over intense competition. Riders were started like the LeMans auto race, where drivers run to their cars, jump in and take off. Other twists on conventional bike races included a very informal timing system, where there were no bib numbers and riders just shouted their names to the timing crew as they finished. In addition, every rider got to draw a card for a merchandise prize along the course.

Riders thoroughly enjoyed the racecourse and the casual atmosphere of the race. The CAMBA Fat Bike team was pleased with race logistics and encouraged about the future of the race, which is a fundraiser to help support development, maintenance and grooming of the local fat bike trails.  They are also grateful to the Sawyer County Forest, Urenholdt Forest and several private landowners as well as the Sawmill Saloon for their support and cooperation.

General Conditions

March 23:  All CAMBA Trails are now closed for spring.

All trails are now closed until the Forest Service and County Forests announce openings, which weather permitting, are traditionally May 1 - May 15, but could be earlier if conditions allow.
Gravel roads are not be affected by this closure. 


Please note the following special circumstances:

Makwa Trail - just north of Gravel Pit Rd. Trailhead is rerouted around the water crossing.

Hatchery Creek Bike Park is closed until spring.
The bike park was constructed with a high percentage of clay-based soil.  This is unlike most of our other trails. As such, it remains wet and soft longer that our sandy loam based soils.  It is potentially vulnerable to damage, so please help us preserve this new facility by not riding when wet. 



Please exercise good judgment when deciding to ride during periods of wet weather. Many of the trails will soak up the precipitation right away and it shouldn’t be an issue, but local conditions may vary. We appreciate your cooperation, understanding, and concern for the trails.
Ride safe, have fun & enjoy the great trails and forests we are so lucky to have.
