Trails open. Tacky/damp surface after quick early morning shower which was nice to settle the dust. We have been tuning on course for Laddies Loppet daily and the trail is riding great. We will continue trail work for the Laddies Loppet mountain bike weekend over Labor Day weekend up until race day.
Signs of early fall with a few basswood leaves falling to the deck and also forest matter such as acorns to pay attention to. Otherwise some of the best riding of the year on tap the next 6 weeks!
New maps are available. Click here for new map online. The main trail head is near the resort with other trails accessible from the driveway for the Twin Lakes and Sukkerwest loops, county road 110 and hiway 34 for the Bullhead Bootleg loop. Trailforks is also a great resource to use for identifying the Maplelag mountain bike trails.
Twin Lakes has a “sport” option to bypass the first part that has more roots that leads to Hudson’s Hula loop which is rolling great the end of summer. Feeling Lucky, SukkerWest and the Citizen loop good starter trails/loops for first time riders to Maplelag.
We also have pink signs out for the LagChilada challenge which is one continuous ride of the entire trail system, about 25 miles.
Summer pass can be purchased here. The passes helps offset maintenance costs. The Maplelag trails are privately owned and operated and we receive no grants or assistance for operating.
