Fun and challenging ride with several climbs and descents. Tough stretches of singletrack. A couple technical climbs. Couple of fun descents. A few very technical areas. Parts of the trails are pretty tough. Easy to get lost too. Can connect to Gay City and Case Mountain.

Review: If your into long trails without many people this place is awesome. Many miles of trails once you know where to go. Lots of climbing, rocky sections and mostly dry conditions. You can ride for 4 hours and not have to retrace any tracks. Trails are not marked for the most part. I like to climb Portland Reservoir road to see if I can get through without getting stuck. Definitely not a bike park crammed into a few acres.

Review: The Mesh is the largest state forest in the state at about 9,000 acres. I have only ridden a minute amount of trails, but what I can tell you about this place is that it is unique. There is double track, single track, some riding under power lines, etc. Some of the doubletrack is very technical, with many rocks/slabs of rock. Some trails are smoother and even flowy. However, a dedicated mountain biker's park I would say it is not, at least not in its present state. There are some grueling killer climbs, some fun short descents. This isn't a place where you will see a multitude of riders like Case Mountain or Cowles, but some riders here and there. I haven't been able to fully explore the Mesh, so an updated review is in the cards. Fun place nonetheless for a day adventure. Word of caution: certain parts of the Mesh are loaded with Timber Rattlesnakes. Evidence of this lies in the environment full of rock outcrops on the sides of some of the trails. As long as you leave them alone, you should be fine. Even so, ride with caution.
