Trail Description
About this trail
Easy riding, fun, flowy, forested singletrack. Recently redone so the whole trail is singletrack and there are hiking only and biking only areas. Worth a day trip to, it would be best to ride up, do this for a few hours, hit up mauthe lake and drive down to new fane for another hour or two of singletrack. Don't forget to pay... they enforce this place very regularly and well.

Review: Flowing single track through endless kettles . Trail in very good condition

Review: Old school trails that are pretty easy skill wise. Mostly XC. Can get some flow in it, but lots of punchy climbs.

Review: Beginner and wanted to experience more technical advanced feeling trails. This is a great start if you wonder what tough climbs and rocks feel like under you. I'd recommend if you're looking for something tougher than a pretty pruned and rock free/minimal root trail. Used full suspension. You do have to pay for parking/trail. $5 per person, $8 for WI plate, $11 for out of state (unless you have a WI trails pass).

Review: Fun trail I thought. I rode on hard tail so was forced to pick my lines wisely. Lots and lots of rocks, some sections more than others and some sections get dicey quick, but that's what makes it fun. I rode day after thunderstorm and it was very hot and sunny, ground was not slick or muddy, and I would have to say the earth was perfectly tacky. A full suspension would do you good here as my arms and legs felt beat up after the continuous rock gardens. But all in all, I had fun! Hard not to have fun riding a bike in the woods!

P.S. Buy yourself a trail pass and car sticker not just to ride this trail but to ride all Wisconsin state park trails! The sticker will get you into park anywhere in the state. Also why gripe about paying a few bucks to be in the woods, someone has to maintain these beautiful landscapes, let's show some support!

Review: 4 stacked loops that total 8.1 miles on my GPS riding the perimeter. Lots of roots and small rocks give the trail some challenge and a lot of texture without requiring rear suspension. A fat bike would work well here.

No real hills to speak of, but normal glacial terrain makes some of the climbs short and steep. Loop 3 seems to be the rockiest. You will learn how to keep your bike moving on this trail, which would serve you well at places in John Muir and Cam Rock.

Depending on where you live, drive time is not all that different than John Muir or Cam Rock (or even Minooka for some). It's unlike those places so is a good addition to the Milwaukee trails stable.

Review: This spot is a great place to get away from the bustle of the city and relax. Since it is nice and technical I would suggest a full-sus, although it is manageable on a hardtail. The rolling moraines of this area make it perfectly suited for XC. The only thing that drags it down is its character after rainy conditions. The rocks are small, smooth, steep sided, and when wet offer no traction. Going through an extended rock garden makes you feel like a pinball. When it is dry it is a great trail system!

Review: The riding here was pretty good, with some decent singletrack and good flow. However, for an approx. 9-mile ride, the price to ride here was ridiculous: $16 once all the fees are added up. For one. Day. Of. Riding.

And no, there's no chairlift, there's no shuttle service. Those are just the fees to park your vehicle and purchase a trail pass (why isn't this included????).

I had already driven here so I paid the money to ride, but honestly, if I had known that it was this expensive, I would have just gone somewhere else.

Review: Awesome trail - if you can handle the rocks. Definitely recommend a larger tire for this. My 650 handles it perfectly. Parts flow really well, but don't expect a free ride. You'll be working for it. Well maintained and marked!

Review: Awesome Trail - Yes there are rocks and roots - you'll learn to deal with these and be a better rider for it. The trail has great flow without feeling too easy or manicured. One of the best I've ridden in the area. If you make a day of hitting New Fane and Greenbush - definitely worth a drive.
