Review: This is an awesome trail system. Most of it is fast and flowy. Sand Hog Mountain, Screamer, and Bobsled are probably the best trails out there. Most of the trails are fairly tame and the climbs are not too bad. If you want technical, there are some sections you can hit off the main trails. Also, Skip, at the top of the Yawkey cluster, offers a technical playground of fun. Be sure to grab some dinner at Louie's Bucket of Bones in Ironton! :-) The history of the area and trail system is also very cool!

Review: Cuyuna is an amazing place to ride. The trails are marked and laid out very well and the soil is perfect for biking. Hats off to everyone involved in making this place happen. I rode mtb in this area many times in the 90's before it was an actual mtb trail system. I've logged many hours on these trails and always seem to find new features. I don't think anyone could be dissapointed in this trail system. Truly an amazing trail system.

Review: simply the best overall trail system in Minnesota.
The variety of terrain, difficulty and trailheads is unmatched. The trail is at its best in fall. It recovers so fast from rain. Every other trail is a distant second

Review: I'd give it 6 stars if I could. This place is something special.

The iron ore filled soil has a reddish color to it that makes the time in the woods even more beautiful - not to mention the gorgeous lake overlooks every other mile! The trails themselve are perfect - rocky in some sections and smooth in others. There is truly something for every skill level here.

My personal favorites are Sand Hog mtn (brutal climb and fast flowy downhil), Miners Mtn (amazing view from the top and really fast on the way down), and Bobsled (classic burm run you can never get sick of).

Review: Sweet, sweet riding. I love the size of the hills, steep exposures. The rock has a different quality from being dug out of the ground. it's all sharp. Well maintained, beautiful views. so much more to do in Iornton like fishing and scuba. Stayed at True North Base camp, with direct trail access :)

Review: Love the red dirt. Trails have good flow but with technical sections. Bobsled and Miner's Mountain were my favorites with Sand Hog Mountain in third. Fun trails!

Review: Best trails in Minnesota. Great for every skill set, well maintained, and awesome signage.

My personal favorites are the screamer, sand hog mtn, mucker mtn, and the ferrous wheel. Rolly poly is pretty fun, too. I love that these trails are all pretty challenging without being too technical unless you go on the black diamond trails.

The only trails I've been to that are even close to being this fun are the pincushion mtn trails in Grand Marais

Review: Superb, Brilliant, Flawless!

These 3 adjectives come to mind after spending my first 3 days in the Crosby - Ironton - Cuyuna region. The effort and workmanship gone into developing this region as a go to destination for mountain bike recreation is unmatched and speaks as a testament to the openness and hospitality of the region to cycling.

I will be going back soon!

25 miles of track that increases in difficulty up to a trials level offer something for everyone. The flow and allure of each new corner, climb and decent all conspire to keep one playing all day long.

Review: Great trail system. All day riding without repeating. A reason to have a FS bike in MN. Plans for expansion that are looking great. Shred the red for sure.
