The trails are open. Tacky/dry conditions. The foliage has exploded the past week making for a nice deep woods feel. Wednesday we mowed all the ski trail segments of the bike course including the entire Suicide Hill. Yesterday and today we finished blowing out the rest of the Twin Lakes loop. Monday we cleared out segments of the singletrack that had leaf coverage etc. on various segments including the Bente’sBump, Hudson’s Hula and Pete Porkie sections. Great weekend of riding on tap!
Good to see all the riders out this spring enjoying the excellent conditions. Scroll down for photos.
The mountain bike trails are open outside of rain/wet conditions. The “nature” of the mountain bike trails at Maplelag allow for quick drying and rideable conditions 6-12 hours after any precip.
No charge to ride early season. No services available in lodge. Park in far parking lot, click in and enjoy! Season pass is $10. Maplelag maintains, builds and manages trails privately but we are happy to share the trail and appreciate contributions to keep the trails maintained and build new for others to enjoy.

We have resumed work on new trail near Bullhead lake on the Maplelag property. We will also be building new beginner trails for winter riding this summer and fall.
Pleasant weather in place after a chilly and wet start to the week. Just over an inch of rain the past week which was welcomed after a dry spring. We have begun mowing on the trails and clearing deadfall etc.
Few more wildflowers popping up and waterfowl active as ever. Great to hear the loons calling at night! More birds migrating through showing up at the feeders. We are in the woods when we can working clearing deadfall, tuning trails and planting trees. We are also building new mountain bike trail. Mountain bike trail has been active with mountain bikers.
