(Point Area Single Track Association) has added over 13 miles of single track of various skill levels. There are plenty of climbs, roots, and rocks that wind throughout the wooded park. Mountain bikes must stay on designated trails at all times. All single track is signed and one way only. Trails are very well marked. There is a $3 trail use fee, or $20 for the season.

Review: I live in Stevens Point and i visit these trails quite often. perhaps once or twice a week and these trails are very flowy, if you're good at riding technical, flat, single track. there are a lot of short burst climbs throughout the trails and it makes them quite snappy if you can maneuver you bike efficiently. biking here is all about being efficient. If you want to build up endurance and your ability to ride over rocks and roots, come here and ride the back half of the trails. the front half is the easier portion and is great for beginners. some of the trails can be ridden without brakes because they flow so well. I love it here.

Review: The low ratings for this area are jokes. I suspect they originate mostly from the fact that Standing Rocks is more technical than most of the places here. I would argue that, mile-for-mile, it's more technical than Nine Mile. There are a ton of roots and many rock gardens, living up to its name. Another nice feature is that these are one-way trails and numbered, so it's hard for even a first-time rider here to get turned around. There have been times in the past where there's been discussion among the traibuilders whether the trail should be tamed a bit more. I hope not. If you're looking for something a little less technical nearby, Hartman Creek is a great option.

Review: This trail system is the opposite of flowy. If that's your kind of thing I'd definitely stay away, but if you're into technical riding this is the place to go. There aren't really man-made features, most of the trail is natural. There are lots of roots and rocks, especially on the black diamond trails, trail 13 and the optional part of trail 10. some of the climbs can be unforgiving and really leave you needing to catch your breath. There are a few short fun decent, but expect mostly up and down riding. Personally I normally park on tower road and do trails 6-14 since trails 1-5 have some particularly brutal climbs. I've been riding Standing Rocks for about 3 years due to proximity. This system can be brutal at times, but if you like running over stuff and challenging climbs its the trail system for you.

Review: Its not a bad trail... Its not terribly exciting either, just a lot of work and no reward. Its really hard to work up any speed. Feels like 10lbs of s**t in a 5lb bag. There is some new trails being built and reworked. The new trail section is fast and fun, while still being technical. I hope the rest of the system follows suit. Oh! hit those huge ski hills on your way back to the car, those are great, lots of speed to put a grin on your face after grunting thru the slow singletrack.

Review: Rode this trail 9/5/16.

Not the worst MTB trail I've ever ridden, but close. Narrow, winding, very slow. The worst part is how incredibly bumpy it was. My friend and I (on hardtails) were beaten up after just 4 miles. Constant pummeling from tree roots.

No fun downhill sections, nowhere to get any kind of speed. It wasn't a difficult or challenging trail, and it wasn't any fun.

Review: Fun and flowing trails with lots of variety but careful about getting lost - we got about halfway through and ran out of daylight and had to make our way to the ski lodge where we finally found the road leading back to the parking lot.

Review: I've now been to Standing Rocks 4 times and am now comfortable without a map in my pocket. I like the trails here because they are quiet and when I ride early, I hardly ever run into anyone else except in the parking lot. Blue trails have a good flow and get more difficult, similar to Hartman Creek. Red trails I liked the most. More difficult and more technical, similar to 9 mile. Black trails were difficult for the tires I have on my bike. Lots of sliding on big tree roots and the uphill rock gardens were more difficult than I had remembered. Similar to Ho che min and white knuckle at 9 mile. I'll definitely go back.

Review: Best thing about this trail is you can show up your first time and not even worry about where to go. Trails are one way, signage is a simple ascending numbered system and on trail more or less flows to the next with a handful of XC ski trail connectors. The terrain is a nice variation from one trail to the next. You'll flow through the pines one minute and the next your hammering over Rock and root with a whole new set of trees. Great little trail.

Review: Loved the flowy beginning of this ride and then entered quite a few miles of roots & rocks making for a ride that borders on fun & too much jostling. My legs felt more beat up at this distance (1 loop is 13.6 mi) than the same mileage on other trails. These were well marked as it was my first time and easy to continue riding fast through each intersection. I would definitely ride here again if in the area, as it helped tune my technical skills!
