#4 of 35 mountain bike trails in North Dakota
There are approximately 2.5 miles of trails currently available to mountain bikers...many more to hikers. The trail network is mostly singletrack traveling through hilly wooded areas. There is only one steep climb. While short its the only singletrack in the area and is a great trail through the woods. The two miles tend to flow quick with only switchbacks truly limiting the speed. Deer and birds are all over the place and the trail stays close to the river and brooks. The trails are scenic but are not challenging. $3 daily vehicle entrance fee. $10 overnight camping fee. This trail was mentioned in Mountain Bike Action's "America's Greatest Trails" article which appeared in the August, 1995 issue!
