Black River State Forest

There are 29 miles of biking trails, five of which are located at the Pigeon Creek campground. This segment links to the remaining 24 miles of hiking, biking and ski trails. Riders should note that bike trail surfaces vary and include sand, gravel and grass.

Bikers will delight in the scenic views of the Ridge, Norway Pine and Wildcat trails. For safety reasons, it is not recommended to use these trails during the gun deer hunting season.

These can be purchased at the Castle Mound Service Center or through self-registration at the trail head. A vehicle admissions sticker is not required when parking in either the Wildcat or Smrekar parking lots.
