Bikepacking has been rapidly growing in popularity in the Chequamegon area. The long, interconnected trails and the vast area forests make the CAMBA trail system a natural for this activity.
If you’re familiar with the trails or have all the maps it shouldn’t be too hard to put together a good route. Local bike shops and CAMBA staff can help outline potential routes.
In 2016, the Wisconsin Bike Fed “literally put Wisconsin bikepacking on the map” with its inaugural Tour de Chequamegon Bikepacking Weekend. A description and map of the 110-mile route that begins and ends in Cable can be found at this link.
Depending how far you can cover each day you should be able to find good camping along the way. In most areas, trailside camping is permitted, provided you camp away from the trail and observe all rules with regard to fire, etc. In Sawyer County Forest (Hayward, Seeley) there is a permit policy that you can find out about online.
