Review: Easy trail for a nice ride, trail head is impossible to miss as it is the only hill in the area. Not advisable if ticks and cow dung are a problem for you as both are fairly prominent as it is a ride through pasture land.

Review: Entirely throughout pastors. Has some good drops and climbs. Be cautious of rocks on the trail. Most of them remarks as some of them sneak up on you.

Review: I enjoyed this trail a lot! The route is pretty easy cross country for the most part. It heads up the hill for some fun down hill and there are a lot of rocks in the trail. The map location was spot on. Worth riding if you are in the area.

Review: It's single track in the open Prarie so there isn't major obstacles or fast down hills but the is the Butte for some fast but short down hills. You can go fast or slow but I like it and they hold a race every other year.

Review: Great ride for North Dakota. It's 5 miles round trip unless you jump on the 3 mile loop in the back. That just circles around to where it started and then you continue the 5 mike loop. Lots of rolling hills, and the butte itself will burn your legs a little. There are a few water crossing which are fun. Be warned the 3 mike loop is not currently well marked and it's easy to get off the single track on accident. Also, bring some bug spray there there are lots if places to pick up ticks. Overall a great place to ride for beginners and intermediates

Review: Good single track in NoDak! Winding thru rolling cow pastures. You WILL get manure on you... No big deal tho. Fairly dry considering the significant amount of rain here recently. Intermediate for a few technical spots along the way (significant rocks in the trail). Good news is that it's mostly a pasture, so you can go around them or cut your own trails if you want.

Review: I rode this single track on May 5, 2012. Nice trail. The area that is marked with the pink and orange flags is a little hard to follow. Moderate climbs through out with some steeper stuff towards the end. If ticks bother you you might want to reconsider. I ended up picking about 15 of them off of me. Over all nice trail that is not to difficult.* Review edited 5/12/2012
