Trails are open. Damp conditions from rain on Monday but should be good riding again Tuesday afternoon.
The trails will be open this fall for mountain biking until November 1st. Some of the best riding of the year on tap the next 4 weeks. We will blow leaves off the trail every 7-10 days on most of the course. We are also building new trail near Bullhead lake on Maplelag property.
Awesome weekend of racing for the Laddies Loppet mountain bike weekend. Thanks to everyone who came to the making it another fun weekend!
We completed a new starter loop for the full Laddies Loppet loop which was used in the Expert race but is open for riding to all classes/riders the remainder of the season for daily riding. The new starter loop heads out on Mother North Star ski trail than right on Skaters Waltz ski trail , heading up to Kamikaze hill before picking up singletrack than making way to the lakeside singletrack. Starter loop includes a little bit of new and existing singletrack, doubletrack and singletrack ski trail. The starter loop can be bypassed by heading left on Skaters Waltz. The starter loop is around 2 miles in length. The loop is signed and marked.
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 very technical with roots and rocks and a great test of skills! The Twin Lakes loop is recommended first for first time visitors to Maplelag with mountain bike experience and for first time or beginner riders, the Citizen loop is recommended.
Season pass is $10. Park in far parking lot, click in and enjoy! Maplelag maintains, builds, manages and funds the trails privately with no outside assistance (grants etc.) but we are happy to share the trail. We appreciate season pass purchases to keep the trails maintained and build new for others to enjoy.

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.
