Mountain Biking Twister

****   Add a review
#141 of 385 mountain bike trails in Wisconsin
#6,309 in the world

In 2018, Buckthorn was completely redesigned as a machine-built flow trail. Nowadays, it's a nice, fast, and relatively flat part of Twister great for beginners or those looking for a quick way to get to the gravity-oriented trails.

The original portion of Twister is still old-school singletrack, making the new combined trail quite the mixed bag of trail types. Besides one or two log hops, beginners will also enjoy this portion's easy singletrack and, well, twists.

    This trail has some great flow with a few switchbacks and a couple log obstacles, skinnies, and elevated skinnies. Most of the obstacles and skinnies can be ridden around.
