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.

    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend....or yers?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
