Hmorba 25.5+pi Trail - TRAIL

Hmorba 25.5+pi Trail - Trail, Brooklyn, Wisconsin

See if you can lick Satan's Choad or the nearly impossible, Choad de Diablo. Poo log, stumpy and loggy are also fun.

First of all, I'm fairly certain this trail is nowhere near Brooklyn, unless that was meant to throw people off. Secondly, I have yet to see a disgruntled farmer, or a pack of ravenous weiner dogs for that matter. I have to say I'm a little disappointed after having those expectations. WHERE ARE THE WIENER DOGS?! After speaking with a developer of the trail and another experienced rider, they had never heard of such things ... must be more shenanigans. Finally, to the actual review. I have no idea what/where the various choads, poo logs etc were, but as we did both loops (connected across about a half mile of farm field) I would imagine we went through them all. Expect to use your "third wheel" here. There are some (2-3) very aggressive downhill switchbacks (and some fairly level switchbacks) that are incredible, lots of logs, roots, not many rocks, some great hill climbs (one I still haven't made after two tries), and a 12ft x 2ft split-log bridge. Very twisty, tight turns, and some questionably placed logs at nasty angles, in nasty locations. If you go with a group, the lead guy will likely knock out the spider webs and burdocks for you. This trail isn't really public unless you have connections. Assuming you do find it, don't complain about it being unmaintained unless you plan to come out and fix it up yourself. I actually like it that way. It probably won't kill you to join WORBA, and then besides being able to help build and maintain trails in the area, you have unlimited access to this place, which is only X minutes from the Y side of Madison.

There is only one. I guess two depending on where you start.

So, as for directions for finding this place, good luck finding it! The only way to find this place is to have someone that knows where it is show you, plus its private land so im not sure the owner would be too happy if a lot of people came. But as for the trail, its pretty good. There is a lack of trail maintenace, so i got scraped up by lots of thorn bushes. The trail requires a guide, or a newbie wouldnt know where to go. Theres some decent climbs and some downhills. Lots of logs, some are challenging to get over. I did a night here the first time I went here and that was a challenge.

Customer Service

The trail is separated in 2 sections that is connected by a double track trail that cuts across some corn fields.

I rode this trail for the first time this weekend. The obstacles are challenging, but doable. I found the trail hard to find and the neighboring farmer a bit disconserting.

The trail is poorly marked and hard to follow...if traffic increases (which I predict it will, with the quality of terrain available here) more guidance will surely be required to prevent collisions and confrontations.

There are no bathrooms or changing facilities here, so be prepared.
