Northern Highland-American Legion State Forest

Except for the nature trails, Fallison [PDF], Trout Lake [PDF], Star Lake [PDF] and Raven's [PDF] yellow loop, biking is allowed on all roads and trails. This amounts to hundreds of miles of biking opportunities.

Designated mountain bike trails require a state trail pass, which can be purchased by self-registering at the trail heads. Trails designated for biking are McNaughton [PDF], Madeline [PDF]Lumberjack [PDF] and Raven [PDF].

There are two trails on or near the forest that have suitable surfaces for all bikes. The Bearskin State Trail has trail heads in Minocqua and on Highway K near Highway 51. Also, the surrounding area towns maintain a paved bike trail that runs from the Boulder Junction, through Crystal, Firefly, Muskie, North Trout and South Trout campgrounds and on to St. Germain.
