Trail Description
About this trail
Some single tracks, some double tracks. It is in a very hilly area by several lakes, very heavily wooded. It is a park preserve, so it is very nice. Not for beginners as you might make good use of your helmet. Gps had me topped out at 30mph at some point.

Review: Nice an flowie. Seems to focus on single track flow over all else. Some advanced technical features, but mostly skill climbing obstacles. Trail lacks any significant drops or jumps, or pump sections. Nice mix of prairie and woods riding. Very beautiful, if you have only one place to ride and have the family with, this is a good choice.

Review: Much improvement from when I lived in MPLS. Lots of fun, flowy, with some techy sections , with qualifiers at the beginning. No real climbing, but often felt like a perpetual roller coaster.

Review: Beautiful track, good place for all levels of rider to experience. Seem properly rated. Probably one of the better experiences we had mountain biking in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Review: Nice, fast trails with lots of turns and a decent amount of climbing. Very well taken care and popular in Twin Cities. A must ride if you are in the area

Review: Fun trail. I'm not sure if I like this or Lebanon better. More climbs, but still not a ton, you do get rewarded for them, though. Some nice technical sections, but mostly, this is a fast flowing trail. You will not get lost, which is nice. Plenty of parking, there was a small RV all set up and it interfered with no one. Ride this trail.

Review: What a great trail! This trail has everything but sustained climbs. It has flow sections, tech sections (with bypasses), and singletrack that weaves through the woods. It also has decent signage at most intersections so you won't get lost. Tech features are well marked and usually sessionable. The beginner loop at the beginning has some rollers added to it so the prairie isn't that boring. I would like to see some more so it's more pump than pedal in sections, but the height and spacing is good for a beginner section. A must-ride trail if you're in the twin cities!

Review: They recently updated the beginner loop that adds to the fun at the beginning. There is also a new technical section in the advanced loop that is quite enjoyable. One of my go to trails when I'm looking for a quick 10 mile ride.
