The CAMBA summer trail crew and a small dedicated corps of volunteers have been ticking off numerous trail work projects this spring and summer. Early work included the completion of a half-mile segment of the Makwa trail removing the trail from the Birkie Trail, which was utilized as a temporary connector, and the opening of a .4-mile segment of new singletrack on the Ojibwe Trail.
In Namakagon, a series of reroutes along the outgoing Namakagon Trail have resulted in some more challenging alternatives for riders on that trail. The original two-track segments that comprised parts of the original trail will now serve as less difficult alternatives.
On the returning leg of the Namakagon Trail, a couple of miles of new trail have been completed. This trail utilizes some fun terrain and natural features, plus the occasional constructed feature,. significant among them are Sisyphus Rock and a first-of-its-kind in the CAMBA system log ride.
The CAMBA Crew will soon wrap up its stint in Namakagon and move on to begin work on the yet-to-be-named trail from OO-north. The initial leg of this trail is about 5.5 miles. It remains to be seen how much will be completed, but the crew will be at work until the end of August, so hopefully another two to three miles. The project will target tying the trail off to an intersection with another CAMBA trail or forest road to allow return routes from the new trail.
