Mountain Biking Lapham Peak State Park

****   Add a review
#80 of 388 mountain bike trails in Wisconsin
#3,379 in the world

This is a good trail for working your aerobics -- lots of up and down hills on
grassy doubletrack, with few technical features. Make multiple loops and work
on your speed. There are a couple of trail crossings, where you encounter
equestrian and hiking trails (Ice Age Trail) -- bikes are not allowed on those,
so be sure to stick to the mountain bike trail.

    Just some flat, featureless trails that you share with horses. Make the drive to Muir and Emma (that said I never spit on mountain bike access)

    A great cardio workout, but that's about it. The whole trail is double track in a field with some rather pronounced gulleys from bikes and rain. Nothing technical to speak of, but a good workout if you do a few laps. Fun for night biking on a fat bike!

    Family friendly beginner trail. Short enough for the kids or good enough for a tempo ride if you do a couple laps.

    The Lapham Peak mountain bike trails are essentially grassy double track. They are not technical at all. There are a couple little downhills where you can gather some speed but for the most part they are cross country trails out in a field. That being said, as long as you don't go expecting to ride single track they are in a pretty park and are nice for getting a good workout in. They also seem to dry out really quick. So they would be a nice option for a ride when a lot of other trails are wet.

    Nice place. Kids can go with you, but there a a few hills. But those build character!😎

    Boring open field that's more double wide (though has a worn single track lane). This is a good place to work on mental toughness or get an aerobic workout. Nothing technical about it - some good climbs. You will need to ride multiple loops for a good workout (just over 4 miles per loop). A fantastic place for a beginner or someone looking to get familiar with clipless pedals off the roads. This is my go-to ride in the spring when nothing else is dry, as this one dries out fast.

    The description of this trail is dead on. Double track with rolling hills and a few technical sections (if you can even call them that). It is a fun trail to ride around with some buddies or with your family, but is not very challenging, so if you are looking for something technical look elsewhere.

    This is a good beginner trail. First ride of the season to get your legs back. Need State sticker and state trail pass.
