Looking for that next great ride for your dual sport or adventure off-highway motorcycle? Whether it be some afternoon rides on single track trails or multi-day rides through the Northwoods, here are three Wisconsin favorites that are sure to put a constant grin inside your helmet.

Northern Wisconsin Adventure TrailMountain

The NWAT is a 950-mile GPS-guided dual sport motorcycle path. Load the track into your GPS and head off through the forests for four to six days of on- and off-road riding. The route takes you through the spectacular scenery of the northern forests while visiting points of interest in the communities along the route.

Overnight stops routinely include Mountain, Boulder Junction, Bayfield and Tomahawk. Travel light and enjoy the excellent restaurants and opportunities for lodging along the route.

Northern Highland – American Legion Dual Sport PathEagle River

This popular 130-mile ride in the Northern Highland/American Legion State Forest winds through a variety of wooded roads and two tracks. You are sure to encounter a variety of wildlife, and there are plenty of opportunities to pause to let the picturesque beauty of the forest soak in.

This ride is self-guided using GPS tracks, with many riders basing out of Eagle River or Boulder Junction.

Single track motorcycle trails Jackson and Clark counties

The preferred recreation experience for many off-highway motorcyclists involves single track motorcycle trails that wind and roll through the forest. These two counties offer excellent opportunities to scratch that itch!

Jackson County offers three separate loops that are eight, nine and 11 miles long. Clark County offers 16 miles of trail. Test your skills and your stamina as you work your way through miles of tight winding pathways.

Get a group of riding friends and families together for a great weekend of riding adventures and other area fun. There are plenty of opportunities for camping, lodging, entertainment and restaurants in nearby Black River Falls, Hatfield, and Neillsville.
