      Park at the trailhead near Boulder Lake Campground. This 20-mile adventure warms up with some intermediate two-way singletrack through quintessential northern Wisconsin wilderness, passing between deciduous and coniferous forests and through prairies.

      The trail splits into one-way singletrack after you've ridden Big Daddy, Cinderella and Drama Queen. Shortly after entering the one-way section, you'll encounter some advanced technical features that make excellent use of the car-sized boulders that dot the landscape. After that, it's a ridgeline ride through some deep woods.

      You'll emerge from the singletrack onto an old forest road (Old Grave Road), which features a primitive campsite located next to the Oconto river. Burn through the forest road to get to the next singletrack section, Bear.

      Following that, you'll ride a heavily-wooded section called Scout, which was apparently built by a boy scout. Scout brings you to highway 64. Across the highway, there's a section of singletrack that is moderately technical, making use of the naturally rocky terrain as you wind your way through the forest to the end of the trail at Eickhoff road.

      Turn around and head back from whence you came. On the way back, you'll arrive at another one-way section which follows another heavily wooded ridgeline. You'll climb Bee Sting Hill and ride through the Gravity Cavity. This section features some quick descents followed by short, punchy climbs before spitting you out onto the two-way singletrack back to the trailhead.

      Despite the fact that this trail is quite remote, it is extremely well-marked and impressively maintained (at the time of this writing). Definitely worth the trip deep into da North Woods.
