Planning 7 days in Wisconsin

Starting Saturday will be in Wisconsin for 7 days.
Camping. 2 bikes, CCM Ice - no suspension, and a Nakimura 24" with 2" travel. Coming from the Prairie I have seen limited change in elevation. Any suggestions appreciated. Looking for intermediate single track stuff in trees. Can only spend a half day at any place. I'll be coming down the Mississippi then passing through Perrot State park, 3 days in the Dells, so Madison, Devils Lake and Blue Mound are close. Have to then head back North. Found a reference to numbered area in an old magazine. There looks to be trails everywhere. Where are my best bets? What about Chimmey Rock Park. It would be great if there was something for the others to do like climbing, hiking or swimming or bird watching or shopping. PM me if the info is secret. Thx.

You should check out the CAMBA trails near Cable. I hear they are pretty good. Someone else from Wisconsin might help you out with other ideas.

I can't comment on much in southern Wisconsin, but there are some great trails I'm familiar with in the central and northern parts of the state.

The CAMBA trails are an excellent option if you're going to be far enough north. Lots and lots of trails in several different areas. I would recommend the Namakagon cluster near Cable because the singletrack is awesome. There's a lot of outdoorsy stuff nearby for your friends, as well as part of the Chequamegon National Forest (camping for only $10/night or so). The CAMBA trails are THE place to mountain bike in Wisconsin (just don't forget the bug spray). http://www.cambatrails.org/

Another option is Levis-Trow Mound near Neilsville. It's just a hop skip and jump off of I-94 past Black River Falls. There's a lot of variety, plenty of singletrack through the woods, some crazy downhills and beautiful views. In fact, Levis-Trow is designated as one of IMBA's "Epic Rides." Not much else around for your friends, though, unless they like four-wheelin'. http://www.imba.com/epics/levis_trow.html

And if you're in Eau Claire, stop out at Lowes Creek County Park. Not a big mtb mecca, but we've got some fun singletrack, play host to an annual WORS series race, and have plenty else to do in the area.

Check out kettle morain state park, they have some fun xc/single track. They also have a great bike shop that rents out some really nice bikes, plus it right down the road from the entrance. There are also tons of nearby came grounds to choose from too.
