Review: Couldn't find trails. Old map in parking lot doesn't tell you where you are, or where to go. Initial trail circles back to walking paths in fields and disappears..

Review: A confusing network of old school MTB trails and ski trails in Battle Creek Regional Park. Plenty of elevation if you want to work on your climbing skills. Portions are very enjoyable if you can find them. Ridgelines and lots of roots and sand keep this from being very friendly for new riders. MInnesota Off-Road Cyclist (MORC) and the park are starting to get serious about some trail improvements which are already starting to take place. From what I've heard, long range plans could turn this park in a wonderful MTB destination with over 20 miles of trail.

Review: This place is a labyrinth. If you use mapping software on your phone, you can find your way through it relatively easy if it's your first time. Looking forward to riding it again.

Review: Visited here and rode on one section of trail, then couldn't even find another one for 2 hours. I cross country ski for my high school multiple times a winter in this park, and that knowledge wasn't even enough to navigate me through it. Desperately needs some form of labeling, until then count me out.

Review: Awesome trails. Good 1/4 mile single track with tall burms and 4 decent jumps look for trail head off of main blacktop trail right by large spray painted Boulder. Can't miss it. Also lots of trails once you reach the top. More than ten miles if you explore enough there's hidden trails all over

Review: I would recommend hitting this trail with someone who knows it well. The signage is poor and erosion can easily be mistaken for singletrack where a wrong turn could mean a drop down a 30' creekside. No maintenance is done, so the grassy sections are over the handlebars and you're going to want long pants and long sleeves. I found multiple pipes sticking out of the trails (must be erosion control?) and also a random manhole cover or two in the middle of your ride.

If you're an advanced rider and want to do some technical exploration this might be a solid option. It certainly is different than most trails in the area.

Review: Trails are terribly marked. I couldn't find any trails other than 1 that looped right back to parking lot. Trails might be worth a ride if I could find them. Map at parkING lot is worthless

Review: Battle Creek is, as one other reviewer hinted, a "diamond in the rough". Some of the most technical trails in the Twin Cities area of Minneapolis / St Paul. Tough, arduous climbs, tight technical singletrack, wide open ski trail, drops, roots, rocks...you name it! This area would be better served, however, by some new signage and an established trail direction. For first timers out there it is extremely frustrating finding your way. Riding with a person that knows the ins and outs as a guide would be a great way to get introduced to this great trail system!

Review: Could be a fun ride here but if you know where to go or got plenty of time to explore yourself. There're very nice portions here but it's hard to connect it into one ride. Terrain is very hilly and sandy in places. Overall ill ride here again - there's nothing like this trail in the Twin Cities
