Hayward WI atv trails?

8 posts in this topic

Anyone have any experience riding up around Hayward? I've heard about a "Dead Horse Run" trail system, anyone know what its like?

Thinking of heading up midweek to do a little fishing, just wondering if its worth bringing the wheeler along.

The "dead horse run" Goes between Loretta and Clam Lake. It is a great trail but DO NOT travel it alone. There is absolutely nothing between clam lake and loretta. It is a 55 mile long stretch with no fuel stops, if you attempt bthis trail BRING EXTRA FUEL. This trail is extremely wet and muddy and will test you and your machine. We just rode it last week. We had a group of probably about 30 with a chase vehicle with a spare machine running the forest roads and meeting at certain connectors.

YOU WILL GET WET. Chest waders recommended.

Good advice Fishy on the chestwaders. Years ago I wore chest waders to Redtop for a ride and got quite a few looks from people. But guess who was the first to go into the cold water in the sink hole to pull people out. This was before they filled it in. smile

Especially the one kid who insisted on starting his motor after the machine was totally swamped. I'm surprised he didn't "hydraulic" that machine.

I have road the dead horse a couple times, there is a long stretch of cobblestone. The trail will give you and your machine a work out! If you have loose ball joints on your atv, you may want to replace them before riding there! Make it a full day round trip, you will be worn out!! I have never ran out of gas, but you wont want to stop and mess around to much at the play spots, or you will run out! It would be a good idea to have a trailer at the oppisite side of the trail , like Clam Lake, or have one mid trail incase of a break down. Have fun, the trail is better then most trails around here! Although, the Dead Horse isnt the best trail in the area!

Wandering eyes,

What do you mean when you say "long stretch of cobblestone"?

Also, what other trails do you suggest in the Hayward area?

I mean lots or rocks that stick up out of the ground about 2-6 inches pretty steady for about 10 miles, atleast it seems that much. Look around Birchwood area, get yourself a trail map for Sawyer and Washburn counties. There are several.

    • Use the hallow points or ballistic tips they rip apart
    • I usually get mine from Tim over at Stump Jumper Designs. He does great work and has lots of choices of woods etc... 
    •   Yeah, but you know your Aunt Bev will never make fun and insult you on FaceBook like you will get here! 
    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
    •   Just like you being a social media queen, LOL

    • Every one said, with out Double here we may as well leave.   So, Welcome back may be with you here they will come back now! 
    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud.
