Razorback Ridge

Razorback Ridge Professional Review and Guide

"Razorback Ridge is the true definition of rugged northern Wisconsin riding. The trails in this area lead through a thick forest of pine, maple, and birch trees, occasionally peeking out into a valley of meadow grass. For the most part, the trails in this cluster are made up of wide-cut grass paths with single- or doubletrack running down the center. The trails are rather bumpy and keep the rider bouncing around in the saddle nearly constantly. The area offers 30 miles of trails through the woods, and countless side routes branch off, offering a more challenging variety of singletrack.

Maintenance on the trails is nonexistent. No erosion control devices are found here and the trails are basically left as is, giving riders who prefer au naturel to structured courses a chance to ride on real, untamed terrain. By midsummer what starts out as an already wild area explodes into an overgrown, densely vegetated region. While the main routes are wide enough to easily pilot in any season, the singletrack sections become more and more difficult as spring turns to summer. Fall and early winter bring a light dusting of snow, and the trails are wide open and free of clutter."
