Mountain Bike Trail Report

The trails are open. 

We  brushed out the  singletrack segments on the main loop last week and brushed and cleared the overgrown segments on Twin Lakes this week.

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. The trails can be described as classic, old school singletrack. Some sections are technical with roots and rocks and a great test of skills! The Twin Lakes loop is recommended first for first time visitors to Maplelag.

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, manages and funds the trails privately but we are happy to share the trail. We appreciate contributions to keep the trails maintained and build new for others to enjoy.

Click here for trail map. Trail starts just past the flag pole, head towards skaters waltz ski trail for the beginner loop (Citizen/TT), advanced loop (sport/comp/expert) 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 jrichard@arvig.net 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 have resumed work on new trail near Bullhead lake on the Maplelag property we hope to have completed this fall. We will also be building new beginner trails for winter riding, this  fall.
