Trail Description
About this trail
this is really good single track, great for the area. there is a small fee to ride there. the single track loops all over what the local people call there mountain. there are some really good short distance steep climps and some fast short down hill sections. if you ride in minnesota this is a must. well good luck and keep a good cadence!!

Review: The local mountain bike organization (MAMB) has really worked on the trails this summer (2018). Definitely worth riding. Yes... There are lots of climbs so be prepared for some exercise! This trail will keep you fit and teach you to pay closer attention to your cornering skills!

Review: First off, having to pay $5 to ride this trail is a rip off. You can't hardly see the tail going through the grass area. A lot of climbing probably 75% climbing and 25% descending. The descending is a disappointment, you can't carry any speed due to tight switch back turns every 3 seconds. No jumps. No features. Just not what you would expect when paying $5. I would save your time, use your money to go to Lebanon, or little Caesars to get a pizza.

Review: The climbs are a challenge, but the decents are the reward! Nice single track which will get better soon with the help of our local riders and MAMB. Go to mankatoareamountainbikers.org for more information.

Review: Underrated. Challenging climbs. Fun descents. This was a very challenging mud race last year. Felt like I did a tough mudder and carried a bike through it.

Review: As others had mentioned.. this trail is not very well maintained. For a trail which one pays to ride, the trail is severely lacking. I rode in the fall and had problems seeing the trail with all the leaves etc. Has good climbs and tight switch backs.

Review: Love it, started right off the bat, after paying $8 and getting broshir with good map, red lining hart lungs up the bunnie slope. Lots of fun ez trail at the top and a nice flowie one all the way along the base. There are MUCH harder trails called out as "most dificult. Mad Squirrel is steep tight switch backs, Pink Poodle some crazy down hill. High Line much the same. Luge is an insane thing, I walked down, but if you got the skill drop in and take the steep banked right left right. It looks way...to me scarry as heck. For me Compressor was a much more reasonable thing, same drop at with many doable swith backs. It's true that it could use some picking up. 1 trail on the map isn't there called Dew Drop.

Review: Good trail, but not well maintained. Always seems to be sticks flying up into your spokes, or a downed tree limb blocking the trail. Last time I was there they were charging $7 or $8/ride in a dropbox format.

Review: Lots and lots of climbing. Not well kept. They need a crew to maintain the trail or something. Plus you have to pay.
