Trail Description
About this trail
Drop in on the trail at the north edge of the clearing, by the highway. It's a
fast, smooth trail. Not technical, but they did pretty well for what they had to
work with. (Red River Valley...) There a a couple of log rolls and tight hairpins
to make it a little more interesting.

Review: MB Johnson is a fun 2 mile trail right along the Red River. Terrain is not difficult, it includes some fun corners and even has some short climbs and descents, really short but this is ND. There are a couple features and some nice bumps that you can catch a little air. Overall this is a great trail in the Fargo/Moorhead area.

Review: Not many miles and no tech. Even so, the trails are entertaining to enough to be worth doing a few laps to get the mileage count up. Some of the dips into the drainage are off camber, making for a little challenge if you try to take them fast. I'd call this more like 2 1/2 stars due to the short length, but what little is there is good enough to round it up to 3.

Review: Fargo/Moorhead is the polar opposite of ideal terrain for building a mtb trail. That being said, MB Johnson is about as good of a trail as you could ask for in the area. My biggest gripe is that it's really hard to follow at points, but with the river flooding every spring there's really not much that can be done about that.

Review: Trails are awesome. Some loose spots of sugar-sand dry black dirt that suck but it's pretty fast right now and only 1 downed tree across the trail.

Review: Probably like 3 obsticles total , there is about 4 miles of wavey single track along the river bed. River floods anually so trail floods every year. This is the only place to Mtb in Fargo Moorhead area so I find myself at this place more than I wished I could say. Some fun man made obstacles. Dont drive more than an hour to come here

Review: Trees are cleared out and mud dried up. It's riding fast again and clear to explore! Will want mosquito spray now. They're hungry!
