Bicycles are a great way to get out and explore the forest.  Most biking opportunities in the Superior National Forest are along gravel surfaced forest roads, often a single lane with no shoulders.  Cyclists must be careful and alert for traffic including logging trucks. 

There are also singletrack mountain biking trail systems, multiple use trail systems, and paved bike touring trails.  Note that most of our trails are not designed for biking and unless specifically designated as a biking trail, bicycle use is discouraged.  Also note that most designated bike trails are shared with hikers and possibly other non-motorized uses such as in-line skating.

When planning a bike trip, cyclists should be aware that many roads in the area are named ‘Trail’.  Some of these ‘trails’ are actually high speed two lane paved roads with no shoulders which may not be suitable for all cyclists.

E-Bikes. The Forest Service classifies e-bikes as motorized vehicles. Class 1, 2, and 3 e-bikes are allowed on open motorized trails and roads on the Superior National Forest. E-bikes are not allowed on non-motorized trails.
