Mountain Biking Mooseberry Mesa

*****   Add a review
#7 of 52 mountain bike trails in Alaska
#1541 in the world

Recently built by Valley MB Association with help from IMBA this is a short but fun singletrack built within yet another x-country ski trail system, (Crevasse Moraine Trail System) here in SC AK. The first .4 mi takes you out along a ridge to an intersection with the main loop and also an optional second .6 mi trail- Moose p*** Loop (I'm not making this up, really). The main loop has a few ups & downs, great flow to it and a few switchbacks thrown in for good measure. Both loops can be ridden either direction, the Moose p*** Loop is a bit steeper with more switchbacks and a bit more fun just not as long.

By incorporating this ride along with the several miles of ski trails in the park you can put together a great afternoon ride without traveling so far from town.

    This is a fun trail to practice technique and has plenty of miles & hills to get a fine workout. You can enjoy these trails year-round so get out there!

    Trail was nice and dry the day I went out and everything was smooth and fast. My only gripe would be that if you don't pay attention you may get a little lost trying to find the trail head. Other than that a smooth well put together session can be had, would recommend to anyone looking for a nice 2 hour ride.

    Really fun place to ride when conditions in Anchorage are too wet. Lots of trails with some really fun single track trails.
