Favorite NW Wisconsin Bike Routes: Barnes, Robinson Lake, Upper Eau Claire Lake, Birch Lake, and Bony Lake

Bony, Birch, Robinson Lake Loop

Bony, Birch, Robinson Lake Loop

Looking for good bike routes in northwestern Wisconsin? Check out this short but scenic loop in the Barnes area. (If you’re more familiar with the area’s lakes than its towns, this route is just north of the Eau Claire Chain of Lakes.)

The route starts in Barnes and rolls past Henderson Lake, Robinson Lake, Upper Eau Claire Lake, Birch Lake, Bony Lake, and Pickerel Lake—all in a ten-mile loop, and that’s including brief side trips on Peninsula Road and Bony Lake Road. (If you’d like a longer ride in the same area, you have plenty of paved and dirt options.)

Starting point: Barnes Park. On County N, just a mile or so east of Highway 27.

Roads you’ll travel: County N, Robinson Lake Road, Lake Road, Peninsula Road (optional side trip to check out the boat landing and study the water), Lake Road, Birch Lake Road, Bony Lake Road (optional side trip to Highway 27 and then back to Birch Lake Road), and County N.

After your ride, food and refreshments are available at a number of taverns and cafes within a mile or two of your starting point.

(By the way, the route passes near this spectacular timber-frame lake home I’m currently listing on Bony Lake. Also nearby is this lake home with wooded privacy and a great view of Middle Eau Claire Lake. Please give me a call if you’d like to see either of these homes. Or, click www.JeanHedren.com to see all my listings.)

Please check back now and then; I’ll occasionally be posting more of our favorite hiking and biking routes. I’ll try to include a couple photos with each post, but not enough to take all the fun and mystery out of exploring these routes yourself. Stay tuned…
