Pipestone Quarry is a new trail system being developed in the beautiful Blue Hills of Wisconsin.  Existing trails include over 3.5 miles of single track built from old logging roads wandering up and down the beautiful rocky hills. The first part is very ridable already, and improvements are made every Saturday morning from 9:00-12:00.  Future trails of a more technical nature will be built using the terrific natural features in the area, including gravity feeds and large rock formations.

Helmets are recommended. There are no fees to use the system, but please support CORBA and become an active member to support this new system. If you enjoy biking there, please come help us build new further trails for the system!
