Namakagon Cluster Professional Review and Guide

"The Namakagon Cluster is located due east of Cable and is one of the more diverse sections of riding found in the entire network. The trails start off from the Town Hall Trailhead on the east and Rock Lake Trailhead on the west and sprawl out to the south stemming from some of the main logging roads. This is such a wide expanse of trails, fifty people can set off at the same time from the trailheads and only cross paths once the rest of the day.

The Namakagon Trails are a system unto themselves and not connected to any of the other clusters, though a 5- to 6-mile ride down Rock Lake Road will take you to the Cable and Seeley clusters. There are four marked trails which intertwine into an elaborate system of routes. Elevation Change: Both the Namakagon and Glacier Trails are primarily flat to rolling, with climbing on gentle grades. The Patsy Lake Trail has climbs in short bursts covering 20 to 30 feet of elevation at most. The Rock Lake Trail has a great deal more climbing, most of which is in the 30- to 40-foot range but at steep inclines."

Our group of three mountain tandems and one "half bike" recently completed a 28 mile tour. Leaving from the Namekogan town hall, we experienced about two miles of fresh bulldozing. With enough traffic, this section will get packed down. We continued on to the Rock Lake section and picked our way around the many rocks and enjoyed the challenge of the many climbs. The Patsy Lake section is the most scenic area and includes the best section of single track. We found the trail to be very firm this fall due to the lack of rain. Typically, the trails have some soft areas that are taxing to ride through. This is one of our favorite trails to ride on in the fall.

May to November. Because of the concentration of hardwoods in this section the fall colors are particularly striking. The trails are also pleasant in spring and summer, with temperatures kept at bay by the shade of the forest. Spring can be a bit damp from snow melt.
Available at trailheads, or through CAMBA. The CAMBA package includes an area map and five cluster maps.
