Mountain bike trails are open. Trail surface is a combination of tacky/hardpack/loamy, scattering of leaves in some areas. We have been working on the entire 25 mile LagChilada course weekly this fall clearing leaves as they fall. Clearing this week on the starter loop/lakeside drops and Moorhead and North Star singletrack loops. Top picks include Bullhead Bootleg and Hudson’s Hula singletrack loops. Overall great late season riding conditions! Looks like cooler weather and precipitation later in the week. Best to get out first part of the week before possible trail closure.
Nice job to all the riders that completed the LagChilada challenge over the weekend.
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. Season passes available on our gift shop page.
