Chad kinda styled this easy dual sport trail after the great Trans American Trail (well no desert or mountains included).
The TWT could be divided into sections: Stating from The southwest:
- Western Upland is a rugged landscape with a mix of forest and farmland, including many bluffs and river bottoms on the Mississippi River. This region is part of the Driftless Area. This area was not covered by glaciers during the most recent ice age, the Wisconsin Glaciation. This section you could easily do on a larger bike that does gravel well.
- In the middle of the Trail, is a mix of hills various farm and forest lands. The Middle of the trail has a nice "Supermoto" section at Wild Cat State Park. The trail also goes thru The "Pine Tree Farm" and this sand is a must for some type of knobby tires. This section near Sparta was all technical two track sugar sand. This pine farm is one of Chad's favorite sections. The middle of the trail also goes through Clark and Jackson County, with is one of the Midwest choice off-road areas.
- The northern one third of the trail starts at Hwy 64, 14 miles west of Medford , WI. at the Perkinstown Motorized Trail. The Northern Highland has massive mixed hardwood and coniferous forests including the 1.5 million acre Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. The trail goes right through the National forest. In the far north, the Lake Superior Lowland occupies a belt of land along Lake Superior, which could include the rugged Bayfield county.
