Trail Description
About this trail
IMBA epic ride. Many trails to choose from. Goat dance, cliff**er, switchback, and toad road are all good. Easier singletrack around base of mounds and moderate to very difficult up and down the mounds. Rocks, sand, and roots will challenge any rider on the climbs. There is also a trailhead building with bathrooms and maps of all the trails. NASTI has done a great job marking trails and I hear there are new ones in the works. Bottom line: You won't be disapointed.

Q: Ok going to try again this weekend, April 27th- 29th, coming down from UP of MI. what conditions might we expect? -cooksign

A: It's likely going to be muddy this weekend. We've had some heavy rains the last three days. Wakefield doesn't close due to wet conditions, but riding wet trails is strongly discouraged around here. Another nearby MTB park which does officially close for mud/snow/ice (Fountainhead) has a trail hotline. If they are closed, Wakefield is probably a mess too. Here is the number to call: 703-250-9124 Option 1.

Review: Passing thru and thought I was going to miss out on getting to ride here due to a good rain the night before. Turns out these trails are perfect after rain. The soil has a good amount of sand so they were great. In fact I did not encounter any mud the entire ride. There are a lot of exposed roots throughout, so be careful when wet. The whole network is worth hitting if you have the time. The new facilities are nice, bring quarters for the shower. There is camping right there too. The in road and parking area is good for larger RV

Review: Levis is a wonderful, iconic and historic MTB site, with loads of trail variety. There's beginer trails circleing the mounds and plenty of dificult trail up and downt he mounds. Signage is good. I jus tlove every visit here. The only bummer is that there're a few sand traps, especially toward the back mound, like Goatdance and the Hermosas. digging in like a pizza cutter sucks.

Review: These trails are a blast! The trail head building burnt down this summer and is in the process of being rebuilt. There is porta potties there for now .. There are many trails and map plaques around to help get you around. There are no difficulty markings, so ride aware up on top of the mounds and don't be afraid to walk it. Very beautiful views! the trails are technical towards the top with lots of rocks and roots. There are some wooden features and bridges that are fun!

Review: It was a fun place to ride. The trails are well marked, but level of difficulty is not listed on the map. There is a day price of $8/ day or a yearly fee. I will definitely be going back.

Review: Plenty of miles for a good XC ride. A couple difficult trails to test your skills. Camping right in the parking lot. A fun place for a weekend if you're into XC.

Review: Best trail system in Wisconsin!!! Also the best old school singletrack system I've ever been to. Beautiful lookouts on Clarence that are hike-able or bike-able. The terrain is all sandstone, so you can ride almost everything - even in light rain. The trails have expert-level rocks, skinnies, berms, and bridges, but usually have a bail out to accomodate newer riders. Just a really wonderful trail system, with a truly amazing crew.

Review: Expansive trail with lots of cool views. Only downside is the amount of sand. Other than that, a fun and challenging ride.
