I recommend that you always have a printed map for the trails you will be riding. You can usually purchase a map at local gas stations or print one before you leave.

Besides the common stops for a drink or food, check the calendar of events for Lakewood, Townsend, Mountain, Doty, and Riverview there is usually some poker run, craft fair, boat race, corn roast, pig roast, or festival happening.
Cool Things To Do
1.) Mudding On The Pipeline
Mudding on The Pipeline can be accessed through The Dusty Trail section near Lakewood, WI. (Oconto Trail System).
What people call the pipeline is about a 20-foot wide sand road that has lots of mud holes off the side of the trail, it is not the trail.
Before running the holes, check how deep they are. There are many that are so deep, they will go over the roof of your ATV/UTV Again, get out of your machine and check the depth before attempting any mud holes.
Yep! I scream like a little girl! I took the brunt of all the mud this day.! I generally don’t open up the mudding video clips to the public because it may tarnish that halo I pretend to have around my head. As you can see. I may not always be an angel when it comes to what I say and do….
2.) Visit Butler Rock
Head to the Town of Brazeau, near Mountain, and hike up to Butler Rock to get a view of three counties.
3.) Climb Mountain Fire Tower
Climb 132 steps and stand 100 feet in the air at Mountain Fire Lookout Tower in Mountain. The last original fire tower of nineteen.
