CannonTracks - Rapid River UP

This is about a 200 mile dual sport ride that is loads of fun. It includes many obscure two tracks, some motorcycle trail single track, sporty ATV trail, railroad grade ORV trail, scenic forest roads, and a trip to The Thunderbowl - a USFS ORV play area. Although it was designed to be started in Rapid River running counter-clockwise (the roadiest part - that was intended to be saved for the end when you are tired - is the segment between Trenary and Rapid River), you can start it anywhere and have an exceptional dual sport ride.

A good approach would be to ride the 50 mile track from Trenary to Rapid River to have breakfast at Jack's Restaurant. Top off and then ride 66 miles to Norden and get gas. The segment from Norden back to Trenary is about 80 miles. For those that might have a gas constraint, top off again in Stueben (just before the Thunderbowl) and you will be quite comfortable. If you ride the entire track, plan to be back to Trenary just before the evening meal.

If you are not set up for single track, you can easily skip that segment. There is some soft sand before you get to Stueben on the ORV trail. Just take to the roads to avoid it.
