This is a great ride for finding plenty of peace and quiet while meandering along remote forest roads. It got to be an endurance quest toward the end, but this loop serves up some first-rate northwoods riding. There are several doubletrack trails branching off the main road that could be fun to explore, and picturesque Ninemile and Hare Lakes make an ideal rest stop. The monster gravel trucks coming hell-bent right at me were a little unnerving, but overall there was very little traffic. If you’re super fit, you might start this ride in Finland for a 40-mile marathon tour. Either way, this is a fairly isolated area with next to nothing around (including help if you decide to get yourself injured). Be prepared with plenty of food and water and first aid—and bring a compass. Tread: Mix of loose and hard-packed gravel road.
