Mountain Bike Trail Report

Damp and wet conditions in place with light rain moving in again Friday. With over 2″ of rain the past week and high water tables, a few low spots are wet. Trails are open, will be wet as until it slowly dries out.

No bugs, great sight lines, no heat or humidity….great time of the year for mountain biking! Weather has also been good for trail work this spring as we are back working on new trail near Bullhead lake on Maplelag property and tuning up select areas on the main loop.

We’ve had a great start to the season with a rapid snow melt than extremely dry conditions with warm nights that took the frost out fast. We cleared out the entire mountain bike course over a course of 7-10 days. Few leaves blowing back in after clearing otherwise the deck is in good shape. We also opened up two segments that were closed the last two years (Fargo segment and Jakes’s Snake) and have now transitioned to working on new trail near Bullhead lake on the Maplelag property.

Click here for trail map. Trail starts at the Skaters Waltz ski trail. All main intersections are now marked and signs at the key intersections for beginner (citizen) or advanced (sport/comp/expert). Please park in far parking lot next to blue dumpsters. There are no services available in the lodge at this time. Park and ride!

Summer pass can be purchased online, good for whole season. (There is no charge for Maplelag team members). The Maplelag trails are self supported with no grants or outside assistance. Trail pass revenue helps offset trail maintenance and property taxes. Thank you.
