Mountain bike course is open. A great weekend of riding in place. This week we blew out the starter loop that consists of the lakeside drop segment and also the original Twin Lakes loop. These trails are a bit more challenging with the roots and rocks and having cleared makes it a bit easier riding. All the other trails are in great shape, a few leaves scattered here and there and the rain we had earlier this week has made for nice dirt. It has been dry since Tuesday evening. We will continue to blow out trail this fall as the leaves drop from the trees! This month is one of the best months to ride!
Great day of racing, albeit a bit hot, for the 33rd Laddies Loppet mountain bike race this past weekend. Thanks to everyone that came to the race and all the volunteers, race officials and service personal that helped make it a great day. (Random photos from each race below)
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 as well as the loops “Feeling Lucky” and “Sukkerwest”. North Loup Gnar on the north side is a slow tech skills trail.
Always be aware for changing conditions and assume all responsibility riding. The Maplelag course is generally described as a classic or natural trail which is rideable shortly after any rain events as the rain is absorbed and drains off naturally.
Trail users are welcome to use the Brant cabin for a changing area and there are also bathrooms. Please note we are remodeling in this cabin but the bathrooms are open. Season passes available on our gift shop page.
