Mountain Bike Trail Report

Mountain bike trails are open. Wet/snowy conditions with sub freezing temps! Yikes! The dirt season is nearing the end but it has been another fantastic season of riding. Thanks to everyone that has made it a great year! The trails will remain open as planned until November 1st. Riding the next few days could be a bit tricky with the freezing temps, expect variable conditions but rideable! Best to ride in the mornings or later afternoon is our suggestion.

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.
