Mountain Bike Trails

Wildcat Mountain Bike Trail
Type: Mountain Bike (A portion of the trail is fat bike friendly during the winter months)
Location: 4 miles east of Spooner, on Hwy 70
Length: 19 miles
Trail Description: A combination of single track, double tracks, portions of snowmobile/ATV trails and gravel roads provide for a wide variety of riding skills and experiences. The trail utilizes thousands of acres of Washburn County forest land, thanks to Washburn County Forestry Department’s support of biking in the area. This majestic land features mature oak, basswood, and maple stands. In addition there are sections that take you through hundreds of poplar trees that remind you of Colorado Aspen. The many acres are also dotted with glacial lakes that offer pristine viewing. You will not find any permanent building structures here as all of this land is protected-it is basically the same land, “virgin soil”, one would have found two hundred years ago. When exploring Wildcat, you will find trails that are mowed, brushed, and marked and maintained by volunteers & local trail users, that will lead you through the many miles of wilderness. Trail users will also encounter winding climbs and descents, long gravel sections and tight single track. An abundance of wildlife can be seen on most visits to the trail system.

Spooner City Park (College Street Park) Trail
Type: Mountain Bike
Location: Spooner
Length: 6 miles
Trail Description: Multiple loops, dogs okay with leash. The trail system offers miles of twisting single track, that feature bridges, log piles, steep climbs and descents that take riders through poplar stands to hardwoods, and even sweet smelling pine sections. There is even a section coined the “Fastest 2 Minutes” that will leave riders on the rivet as they navigate screaming, winding down hills for close to two minutes. Another nice feature of the SCP trails is that at just about anytime during your ride, you can just drop out on the ski or paved bike trails to reload, so to speak, and then jump back in for some more technical riding.
