Review: I try to save my 5 stars, and Cuyuna is worthy with the caveat that there is not a lot of tech or climbing (this ain't CO or UT). Awesome flow, with some shorter climbs and fast downhill runs (Bobsled, Screamer, Sand Hog). Cool new retail options in Crosby, including a brewery. Low tech cabins and yurts available. Its roughly 2 hours from Minneapolis - totally worth the drive for a day trip or an overnight. If you're from out of state and need more options, both Twin Cities and Duluth have several trails that are no joke - use the Five2Ride lists for both.

Review: Incredible trail system. The rebirth of The Crosby-Ironton area because of MTB. Maps are quickly outdated due to the massive trailbuilding. There is a trail for anybody here. Get to the Red Raven for coffee, beer , breakfast or bike shop/rental. See John. Check this:https://vimeo.com/237518233

Review: You simply cannot beat the type of nature of beautiful trees, water and clean air. I am surprised more people haven't commented on this already. If you aren't from the area, it's a must see it, to believe it. Seriously, please stop reading this, grab your keys, load your bike and try it out!

Review: First time on this trail and had a great time. Thought I was going to crash and die a couple of times; but still fun. Only drawback was where it was 2 way traffic. We almost had a big crash with a guy and his kid on a tandem.

Review: As many other have stated, Bobsled and Miners are real gems here. Be prepared to climb though, while not difficult you will be doing plenty of it, but the downhill after is worth the burn.

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).
