Hodag Cruise

Hodag Cruise Professional Review and Guide

"“Don’t let the Hodag scare you!” That’s what the local community stresses, even though it was a hoax created in 1868. The folklore surrounding this frightening monster with razor-sharp claws has turned the local legend into a celebration throughout the years. Like the Hodag’s backbone, bristling with dozens of gleaming white horns, the route you are soon to embark on is filled with hairpin curves that reach up into the fingers of the lakes you pass.

You will enjoy rolling through the forest at the north end of the cruise on Gypsy Road, where black squirrels are common. On River Road you ride into a town where baseball is played on snowshoes. On the homestretch you will follow a route with jagged right and left turns. It is like you were stepping down the beast’s back as you follow along the flowage of the Wisconsin River back to Hodag Park in Rhinelander."
