Mountain biking trip

Me and a couple other guys went camping/mountain biking here in September of 2005. It's got great trails, maybe the best in the state. Name of the trail system is Levis-Trow. They say they have about 20 miles of singletrack trail, but it seems like more.

Lot of hills, including 2 points that dead-end high on bluffs-and you can stop and look out and see trees in 270 degrees, and you're about 150 feet above the tallest ones and the trail is only about 10 feet wide at this point-scary. Absolutely beautiful.

The trail system is right near a little town called Hatfield, 10 miles north of BRF.
We camped at Black River Falls State Forest - East Fork campground.

    Don't miss visiting The Merchant General Store on Main Street in Downtown Black River Falls, WI. It is in an historic general store building and is like taking a trip back in time. Lots of old candy, glass bottled pop, old time toys, antiques, ice cream a

    You ever hit the Greenbush trails, they're pretty nice.
