Saturday I rode with the wisconsinATV.com group in Iron County Wisconsin. It was a GREAT ride! Iron county has gone way out of it's way to be ATV friendly and has a very impressive, and expanding, trail/route system.

Liturature says there are over 200 miles of trails and routes. We put on about 125 miles, some of it backtracking the same way.

We rode two "interestingly challenging" sections labeled on the map as "very difficult." ONe was aobut 2 or 3 miles long, the other about 10 or 12. They weren't Very Difficult, but were enough to be fun to ride and a challenge.

We also rode a section of new construction that went beyond simply "interestingly challenging!" It was a very rocky/muddy/rough run for about 6 or 8 miles that put the best of us to a challenge. About half the machines going through one of the holes needed help getting out (myself included, much to my chagrin!).

By the end of the day almost all of the 18 machines we'd started with had needed help ranging from extra people pulling/pushing to more experienced riders getting on to ride them out to tow straps to at least one case of using a winch.

The downside of Iron County are the miles of county roads and rail beds that connect the fun stuff. Oh, well. Life goes on.

I'll be back!

Well just wanted to add in my 2cents worth on the Iron County trail system in WI.

Just returned home from Hurley WI where me and my wife stayed at a condo called Haven North. Not bad, nice place to stay but for my prefrence we will stay at the Days Inn next time.

Now for the trails. All I have to say is that trail #77 is muddy. Never have been in that much mud before with any atv I have owned, the Grizz performed flawlessly and never once did me or my wife get stuck even with just the ITP ATR's. I really thought my wife had burried hers but somehow she backed out to the side and with a big grin took another route through.

Yes will have to agree with SaliorGriz in that if you go to the south of the county there is alot of gravel roads to run but at the time we went they were very senic and worth the relaxing drive through the woods.

Here is a quick pic of one of the mud runs!! If you look close off to the right of the pic there is a couple stuck in the mud that later we helped out.
