Review: I thought this was a well groomed and fast hard packed trail. There are spots that obviously don't drain well but there aren't many. The biggest obstacle are all the riders. These are multi-directional and there are A LOT of riders. I'll go back. Make sure you get a copy of the trail map from the CAMBR website or YOU WILL GET LOST!! I had to look at the map numerous times and still asked directions.

Review: The trails are poorly built causing constant mud pits and seemingly never dry conditions. Drive out here only about 3 days after rain if not more. The trails are not even close to singletrack, I would actually say 90% of them are double track except a select few trails that are a wide singletrack. The trails are poorly clipped with branches sticking out everywhere in the trail. The only reason I ride these trails because they are within biking reach while Eveleth in else is a long drive. Some good illegal trails though near dynamite road. Very gnarly decents!

Review: Definitely a fun ride through the woods, but I was a little disappointed. I felt like a lot of this trail would be better fit for a dirt bike. Don't get me wrong, there are some parts of the system that I really enjoy, but the overall system was just okay.

Review: My daughter and I rode for about 4hrs. Today. Way cool place this years winter frost is keeping ground wet. Trails are hard to follow somtimes be carefull when calculate milage off trail map loops my much longer than you think your looking at. Old plank closed to cars in middle of park heck of a down hill I would have ride / walk up it the other way. We are looking forward to riding the shorter loops as we tried the longest tied to multi track around most of the area missed an intrsection and ended up having to ride back 3 miles on road. Thankfully it wasn't terribly busy sunday late afternoon. We were too spent to ride the way we came then ride the rest that loop. A GPS or gps on phone and a color copy of a trail map would be better than loosing your way being too proud.

Review: Typical xc type of trails with exception to XX newest addition to the system which is the most difficult
, very technical rocky trail.
This trail system isn't very flowy but can be fast if you are a good rider...
Trails are build and maintained by cambr that just joined imba in 2013.
Overall, old school fun to ride trails.

Review: Dissapointing...expected more. Stopped on way to UP to ride Copper Harbor. Did not find it well-marked and 2-way traffic was bothersome (and often dangerous). It does have nice flow and would be a great course for mountain biking beginners if they are attentive to traffic. Not technical.

Review: Riding here was avry pleasant suprise, nice flowing single track with some suprinsingly good climbs.

Having moved from Southern California 3 years ago I had given up on finding a good place toride in Illinois - but this place ranks!

Similar Trail: Uptown, downtown at Mammath Mountain.
