Review: The Decorah mountain bike trail system as a whole is awesome. The Dunnings Springs trails were great. The Luge was one of the ones I remember. It had rained the day before I was there but luckily the trails were hard packed and unaffected other than the abundant rocks and roots were a bit slick. Challenging and fun!

Review: Great single track. A brutal climb starts it, but once at the top, it's a lot of fun. Depending on your route, you may have to make the climb twice. Trail is very narrow at spots, a few tight turns, and some nice log piles to cross at the top. Off-camber turns and trails with rocks and roots in many places.
