Mountain Bike Trail Report

Mountain bike trails are open. Damp/wet conditions this morning after rain last night. Trail will be rideable, watch for greasy spots on the insides of corner. Right the berms and corners high!

The leaves have fallen fast this year and we have been trying to stay on top of the leaf clearing the best we can. This week we plan to blow out the entire course again before the weekend. Tuesday we cleared out Bullhead Bootleg, Twin Lakes Race loop and most of the inner trail. Many leaves have already fallen so we are getting closer to the sweet spot point of the fall riding season! Dirt riding season will be open until November 1st than open for winter season Thanksgiving weekend. 

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.
