    Absolutely loved the ride. Canadian shield was great. Could not believe I had this place to myself the day before the Lutsen 99er. Every trail was clear except one tree. I rode clockwise. Definitely some rock. Gravelly corners so I wasn't flying. Great workout.

    Rode the trails in February, with a good snow pack. Fun, flowy trails for the most part. Bet they rip in the summer. Signage could be a little better. Spectacular views from the parking lot.

    Very fun trail - fairly well marked, and lots of diversity. Fluvian trail is an absolute blast. Lots of new trails as well. I'd recommend the Tilt-a-whirl trail if you come across it. Great trail!
