Mountain Bike Trail Report

Entire 25 mile “LagChilada” mountain bike course is open. Hardpack/dry surface conditions. No recent rainfall but the deck is holding integrity and not loose or dusty per se and trail is riding great. We have been leaf blowing on the entire course and most everything has been blown out the past week or so. 

The leaves and forest have filled out with flora making for beautiful summer conditions. The entire course was cleared and blown out this spring and we do our best to clear any new deadfall as soon as possible. Always be aware for changing conditions and assume all responsibility riding.  The next phase in trail work will be brushing out a couple areas that become overgrown

We have taped all the key intersections and signs are out at singletrack segments. The singletrack segments are signed by name and courses are generally marked for the Minnesota Mountain Bike Series with Citizen, Sport, Comp and Expert. Any singletrack that is not marked where it crosses ski trail, continue straight on the singletrack. Reference our map or TrailForks or Strava for guidance. 

The Lagchilada challenge is in place which is a ride consisting of the entire mountain bike trail system. It is marked with both black signs and pink signs. Use the Strava app or guidance.

A good intermediate loop to ride is the Sport Loop and Bullhead Bootleg to the east. A good beginner loop to ride is the Citizen loop.

Like this winter, trail users are welcome to use the Brant cabin for a changing area and there are also bathrooms. Season passes available on our gift shop page.

Brant cabin available for mountain bike day users.
