Cable Cluster Professional Review and Guide
"The Cable Cluster is located at the heart of the CAMBA system. The name Cable is synonymous with great mountain biking, and the Telemark resort— which serves as one of the two trailheads for this cluster—is the finish for the annual Chequamegon Fat Tire Festival race. The area is densely wooded and the terrain shows the distinct markings of glaciation, with esker ridges and kettle depressions as landmarks on many trails. Just over 45 miles of trail are found here, covering a variety of terrain from singletrack to paved and gravel roads.
While the riding is tough and appears to be fairly spread out in terms of distance, in comparison to some of the CAMBA riding further to the north, it is far more technical and condensed. The riding is tough because of the distance, just over 15 miles, but several cut-offs allow riders who have had enough to cash in early. The woods fly by in a blur as the trails roll through the hills, helping to carry momentum from each descent through the next climb. The Esker Trail and Nature Trail are the two most challenging of the five loops, both distinctly different from each other."
