The trails have dried out enough from yesterday’s snow to be open for riding today. Chilly conditions but nice riding in the woods. Chance of light precip off and on this week. Trails should remain open outside of any rain. The “nature” of the mountain bike trails at Maplelag allow for quick drying and rideable conditions 4-6 hours after light rain events.
No charge to ride early season. No services available in lodge. Park in far parking lot, click in and enjoy!
Click here for trail map. Trail starts just past the flag pole, head towards skaters waltz ski trail for the beginner loop, advanced loop starts near start of Sap Run and Lucky’s Loype ski trails. Singletrack sections can be bypassed on the east side. To access Twin Lakes loop, take either the east side or main loop and follow red signs or head down the driveway and look for orange cones just past the gate and red signs. Any questions on riding or conditions, email Jay at firstname.lastname@example.org or text 218-849-7669. We typically will have the trails open sooner than expected after wet weather, feel free to contact us for more information.
We will resume trail work on the new trail near Bullhead lake on the Maplelag property later this month. We will also be building new beginner trails for winter riding this summer and fall.
Cool end to the month with snow on Sunday. Melted off by noon, cooler weather in place this week.
Just over an inch of rain last week which was welcome after a dry start to the spring. Trails starting to green up and trees and underbrush budding. Woods are alive with many waterfowl migrating back looking for open water. A few wildflowers popping up as well. The official ice out date April 8th this year. Now that the woods have dried up, we have begun clearing out deadfall and other trail work. Also on tap this spring is the usual tree planting.
