We are on the road today, we are off to bike on the Tuscobia State Trail
This 74-mile trail on a former rail corridor is one of the longest rail trails in the state, running from Park Falls to the Wild Rivers State Trail just north of Rice Lake. The trail passes through part of the Flambeau River State Forest and the rugged wilderness of Wisconsin's Blue Hills. The trail connects seven small communities in Barron, Washburn, Sawyer and Price counties, each providing year-round accommodations and services.
We are off on the trail. Heading into the "Old Forest". The boys thought this looked like the trail Frodo takes in the Lord of The Rings.
I will admit, this is my first long bike ride on rough terrain. I was proud of how well I did.

Riding bike in the leaves was so much fun. The sound of the leaves crunching under our bike tires was so fun. Atticus would put his legs out and act like a snowplow.

Walking and bicyclingThe entire trail is open to walking and bicycling year-round, though bicycling is not recommended. The trail is not groomed or surfaced and may be rough or soft in many sections. If you plan to bike the trail, the tread is more suitable for off-road bikes.
The trail was very nice for off-road bikes.
We walked down a hill that had a wash out area, not wanting to hit a big bump.
Thank you for coming along today.
Trick or Treat
On October evenings in Sleepy Hollow, when the wind is crying through the trees and the firelight makes familiar faces seem ghostly and unknown, that is when the stories are told...
Do you think you would walk down this trail on an October evening?
