Northern Wisconsin Adventure Trail (NWAT)

Just finished proof riding a new 950 mile adventure trail that loops the beautiful and rugged forests of northern Wisconsin. What a blast!

This ride is intended for small-medium dual sports (must be street legal). There will be no big bike go-arounds mapped for this one.

Photos and details of the ride are here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=792871

GPS track can be downloaded here.

Thanks, Cannonshot! We enjoyed a good portion of this trail ... lots of difficult and very different pieces of terrain scattered in there ... it was a blast! I was up there with my three boys on a KLR 650, XL650, DRZ400, and my own old XL600. We enjoyed two very tiring but entertaining days of adventure ... thanks to you and your tracks! Many thanks!

What time/s of the year would be best to ride this route? Looks like it would be a lot of fun.

May through October. May is when some of the seasonal forest roads that are part of the route open up. October will have a lot of leaves on the ground that will conceal some of the hazards and the leaves are sometimes pretty slippery themselves. June, July, and August are the best weather/temperature wise.

I appreciate the answer Bryan. Myself and three others are considering this ride for next season. Looks to be a lot of fun.

I made a 2-day ride out of the NWAT, by short-cutting the loop East of Park Falls.



Riding from home in the Twin Cities, it ended up being just shy of 800 miles.
Not bad for about 24 hours of riding time.
Here's a video of some of what's out there.



Thanks again for all the tracks you have put together, Bryan. There's gonna have to be a statue of you somewhere to acknowledge all you've done.
You might as well pick out a spot you want it to be.

Thanks Ron! I'm glad you got a chance to enjoy part of this route. It is kind of a favorite for me lately as well. Thanks for the video.
