Trail Description
About this trail
Take the lift up or ride up the fire road or one of the rolling cross country trails. There are three good downhill trails at the top of the lift, the middle trail leads to more cross country trails that are bidirectional. There's a skills park near the lodge. Still not a huge amount of trails, but they plan on building it up to 30 miles of trail. Just opened this year and is really fun. During the winter this is a ski hill, so not sure if they allow fat biking.

Review: DL mountain is a must if you live the in the Fargo/Moorhead/DL lakes area, wish I would've know about this place earlier in the season! Pros: chair lift, downhill sections, berms, jumps, well groomed/clean, good deals in the shop, and of course cheap beer(Resort wise)! Cons: Downhill runs are only a couple minutes long and lift is a little slow (better than riding the switch back though). Only rode the downhill parts that take you back to the lift, but I will definitely be back to ride the other trails soon!

Review: very fun trails. started on the west trails to get warmed up.
decided to climb sasquatch to get up the hill most of the time makes the downhill runs more worth it.
tap room is a very fast paced trail. mustard tiger caught me off guard a few times with the drop offs.
a majority of the swayze train is boardwalk which is pretty fun.
who came up with the trailer park boys references?

Review: Awesome downhill runs for minnesota lake country! Average singletrack, large wooden features bring a taste of the north shore to minnesota!
