Famous for its fish boils and berry farms, this section of Lake Superior’s rugged shoreline juts out into the lake to create the Apostle Islands. This adventurous ride leaves from Bayfield, a community named for a British Royal Navy surveyor, then meanders south along the bay’s shore to Washburn, a community named after one of Wisconsin’s earliest governors and a great place to stop for breakfast. From there you climb up from the bay enjoying the rolling forest floor as you travel inland. At the geographic high point of this challenge, shift into your high gear and revel in the long descent to a fishing village named for the horn of plenty. Then circle back through the northeast section of Chequamegon Bay, enjoying the flora and fauna as you make your way up to the point near Big Sand Bay Road. Soon you will pass through an Indian village named for its precipitous red cliffs, and then it’s an easy scenic ramble back down to Bayfield.
