Mountain Bike Trail Report

Trails Open. Incredible fall riding in place as far as Autumn scenes. Cooler temps in place with dry conditions. The woods are vibrant with color. The leaves are starting to fall a bit more rapidly on the trail as we have passed our peak, all part of the fall riding experience! 

We have been clearing on the course the past few days as leaves fall to the deck and cleared most of the course on Thursday and Friday. We will continue clearing on select segments, usually clearing the entire course over a period of 10 days, up until the end of October.

The trails close for the first season 3 days before deer hunting season then open for the winter riding season late November. 

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.
