Bike Trail Report

The “inner” trails, the Bootleg Loop and the new two way trail to the north “North Loup Gnar” now open for riding. Good early season conditions. Still a bit soft but will improve after more rider traffic and rain which will compress the dirt. (Trails are closed if raining or wet. Usually 4-6 hours after rain event, trails will be good for riding again. (Can vary with humidity and dew point.)

We are working on clearing the Twin Lakes loop, and plan to have open by the weekend. We are also working on signage and course marking. Trail head is at flagpole near main lodge. North trail can be accessed of county road 110 just to the east of Maplelag driveway. Bootleg loop accessed from county road 26 via the gravel road 110. Any questions on riding, contact Jay at 218-849-7669.

New season passes will be available in a few weeks. Trail fees are appreciated to help offset trail work, signage and hopefully a new map. These are major expenses and we receive no grants outside funding for the privately maintained trails at Maplelag. Click here for most recent map. (Note: There are a few reroutes on the map but everything will be tapped off. No riding allowed on AMA land and please stay on designated trails at all time. Assume all risk and take responsibility for your actions) We are working on a new trail map that will feature many new trails built last summer and fall.
