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.

February 19: ALL GROOMED TRAILS ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED. The closure is necessary to preserve the trails for future grooming. Our grooming implements cannot erase ruts or footprints deeper than an inch or so. Your cooperation is needed to ensure good riding when things freeze back up.
The anticipated opening date is Thursday, 2/23. Trails will likely be icy.
Fire lanes and other forest roads are ice covered - studded tires are recommended.
Tortoise is now being used for a logging operation. The logging operation is restricted to the southern part of the trail. The northern part, starting at the deer exclosure area, is open for riding.
REMINDER: DO NOT RIDE GROOMED SKI TRAILS EXCEPT WHERE EXPRESSLY ALLOWED. Biking is allowed only on a few short sections of a few ski trails, and only where necessary to connect sections of groomed bike trails. The Birkie Trail has no sections currently open for biking.
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.
