    Rode the trail on 7/29/2019. It's a ski hill. you bike up the green runs and then find the MTB single track trails down through the woods. Makes for a great work out. the single track trails are mostly featureless. a couple nice steep dirt tracks. over all kinda blah for a MTB single track destination, but it might be the best in the area. and you have to pay $7 for a trail pass. Oh and it gets very little use. You will probably have it all to yourself!

    This place could have potential but there clearly hasn't been any effort put in to development and maintenance. First off, it's a Saturday in early August and despite brouchures present throughout the region and a WEBSITE that clearly states "lift operation on weekends during the summer" the lady at front says they decided not run the lifts this summer. Glad we didn't come very far to get here! My son was disappointed but I'm glad I didn't spend $25 each for lift passes to access the garbage trails. They've mowed parts of the ski runs but singletrack is overgrown with roots, rocks, poor design, no drainage. Dead limbs from storms 2 weeks ago everywhere. Very dangerous if anyone actually trying to downhill these. Obviously no one else has been dumb enough to pay to access this dump. Don't waste your time.

    Flow trails are fast and great, but needed some serious TLC. Ruts, washed out berms and poor irrigation just to name a few. Not much features but tons of potential if management invests on it.

    Over grown. Trail maintenance is minimal. Looks to be in the process of building new trails on ski slope. To have best experience get lift ticket when chairs are running and bomb down hill. Trail system has lots of potential. Basically start at foot of ski slope and ride to top just to bomb back down.

    Has a lot of potential if someone who knew what they were doing designed the trails. It's too bad with its proximity to Madison and Devils lake it could be a enticing Mtn. Bike destination. Route finding was difficult and there is no real distinguishing one trail from another. They have great terrain to have fun climbs up the mountain with great winding downhills through the trees and the ability to connect it all with a mid mountain trail. That said I was able to make the most out of my visit there by climbing straight up the ski runs that really didn't have trail but were mowed down to make it rideable. The far left (when facing the mountain) downhill was kinda fun and the far right side was also ok. The only reason we ended up here is because blue mounds was closed because of wet trails. I probably would not go here again unless I happened to be in the area or if I really was needing to do some good hill climbing training.

    Riding the lifts was a cool experience. I didn't care for the trails that weaved through the ski runs but the trails on the outer areas of the ski rack were fun.

    The trails are closed in 2012 because they are putting in new lifts on the ski hills.

    I can't believe they charged $7 per person to ride this trail! It sucked! We had to ride up through 2 feet of tall grass to get to the thorn bush singletrack...and it never got any better! What a joke.
