 The Raven trails are your classic old school rock and roots with tight trees. If you're tired of buffed out ribbons of dirt then come ride here. The skills trail is pretty fun too. The teeter tooters have heavy counterweights, FYI. I'm over 200 lbs with bike and gear and they didn't drop until I was right at the end of them. If you're light and going fast you can probably do them as a drop off. The trail as a whole could use better signage and a leaf blower. Went on Memorial Day and there was still a lot of leafs and pine needles on the trails, in one spot it was difficult to find the trail due to all the pine needles. Some segments have a 4x4 post with a sign every 20 yards, while some intersections have little to no signage... You are also required to have a WI DNR Trail Pass ($5 day). I didn't see anything informing me of this on LAMBOs website, and was surprised by the fee tube at the trailhead. With having to pay I would expect better signs and maintenance. We went to the Clear Lake Day Use Area after our ride to splash off in the beach and we found that the beach and boat launch were free, but mountain biking is $5. We also didn't notice a fee tube at that site, which also doubles as a trail head. There were a couple of bad intersections too where multiple trails came together without the best mapping or signs. Word of the wise, don't go down the trail with the green bike symbol signs. If you want single track go down the trails with the brown bike symbol signs. I also found five different maps total for this trail system, with conflicting information (one DNR map said bikes aren't allowed on one of the segments signed for bikes...). The Trail Forks map is off too, it follows the green bike symbol trail, not the single track. The green bike symbol trail is an old old old school double track trail with some slightly blown out fall line sections. It's the type of ski trail land managers used to put bikes one when they didn't know any better, and then complain about how the bikers are causing all this erosion on the fall line trails. I'd update the Trail Forks map with the ride that I did today but it's FUBAR from backtracking from taking so many wrong turns at intersections with inadequate signage. The maps that I found were too clustered with winter and summer use all in one map, made them difficult to interpret when mosquitoes are buzzing and sweat is stinging your eyes. If the trail signing is improved and the maps are updated then this trail would have a lot more potential.
