I ride this trail 3 to 4 times a week because its only 2 miles from my house. The blue trail is basic double track for about 1 mile and is really only used to get to the yellow trail. The yellow trail is two different trails, the back side that runs along the property line is pretty much a swamp and takes a good two weeks without rain to dry up. The other half is mostly dry with a mixture of sand, rocks, and clay. The whole yellow trail loop runs for a little more than 2.5 miles. The red trail is the real beast of boundary waters. It runs for about 5.5 miles up some really steep hills and ruff terrain. The trails were really made for horses and runners so biking can be a challenge at some points. The forest is still pretty wild so you will see all sorts of creatures while riding. Deer, rabbits, chipmunks, snakes, squirrels its a wild trail. They have recently finished a 1.5 mile paved trail that goes around the lake, I pretty much use it to get to other trails. When I ride I usually combine the marked trails and the unmarked trails and have developed a 9.5 mile loop. Lots of free parking, Douglas county park patrol is always patrolling the area and the trails are usually kept up pretty well. It's a great place to ride if you want a good workout. Just be prepared to have to wash your bike after every ride, fun stuff.
