The trail is great for those with at least a little experience handling obstacles such as rocks and logs, as it is full of them. The really nice thing about this trail is it starts easy and gets progressively more challenging throughout its length. If you're a beginner, you can turn off and climb out or repeat the easy and/or intermediate sections. If you're more skilled (or hard headed) you get a break before the rough stuff the next time around. I've replaced my rear triangle, dérailleur, tires (to say nothing of tubes), etc. because of this trail; it will beat you and your bike up.

Review: I drove an hour to check this place out. Was not disappointed. No major downhills or up hills but trails are loaded with rocks and tree roots that will make your teeth rattle and numb your arms hanging on to the bars. Do bring spare tubes and first aid kit. My bike and I happened to come out unscathed but surprised I didn't blow a tire pinching in rocks. If you do spill there is a good chance of getting cut. I was riding on full suspension bike and not sure I would even try my hard tail. Did all the single tracks in couple hours, Overload was the best with some decent up and down switch backs. thumbs up from me! Worth the drive but remember if you don't have a WI state park tag its going to cost to get in park and plus a trail fee as well.

Review: Like technical trails? If yes then you will really enjoy blue mound. A few grueling climbs on overload, other than that it's all tech with little climbing/decending. Really enjoyed Holy schist for the challenge that it provided. haha to the comment on bringing bandages...my girlfriend ended up with a bandaid stuck to her tire :D on the home stretch trail there is a dope rock launch on the left side of trail(on a moderate downhill after the last climb)...bust some sweet air and crack a cold one with a smile at the end of the ride!

Review: Have had the experience of passing several mountain bikers stalled with mechanicals in the past. This set of trails will chew you and your bike up. T-E-C-H-N-I-C-A-L. The more difficult craggy sections will have you feeling like a BEAST if you ride with commitment. Expect to fall. The rocks are SHARP so bring lots of bandages. I've ridden some tough trails and although there's little elevation at this place, it's a great set of trails to beef up your riding skills in a really compact area. People have ranked this as intermediate but I sure wouldn't take anyone but a seasoned pro on some of those really gnarly inner tracks. We have two boys, 14 and 16 who have both been riding since they were 3, and they'll tackle just about anything. This trail had them crying like sissies.

Review: Good trail, worth the ride especially if you are with in a day trip distance, but there are other trails in the region so you could make it part of a weekend package or if you just want to make it a one day ride during the weekend kind of thing. Some decent technical work on it- you wouldn't want to make it your first bike trip of the season if you don't stay in cycling shape all winter. If you ride it hard it will keep you hard.

Review: This trail is a favorite of mine. WORBA has added several new trails and they are all just as technical and tough as the originals. The creek bottoms are extremely rocky and I have dumped the bike numerous times if I don't have enough speed going into it. Awesome trails!

Review: Decent trail for both the moderately experienced and for the novice as there are two distinct sets of trails you can ride. One is the basic "I just cut the grass" fast trail with lots of elevation and speed and the other is the WORBA singletrack with good roots, lots of rough rocks, stream crossings (although it was bone dry this week), and enough elevation to make your muscles sore but not enough to make the determined MTB walk. Worth the trip from southern Wisconsin but keep in mind there is a $4 daily trail pass fee and a $7 in state, $10 out-of-state park pass fee.

Similar Trail: This is my first Wisconsin trail but I'd really recommend riding in NC - more variety, numbers and FREE.

Review: been a long time since I rode there but from what I can remember it is just an absolutely awesome set of trails. i was rather green at the time and didn't have the best bike in the world but I made it work. Over all just and awesome set of trails.
