Mountain Biking Trail AA (easy A)

****   Add a review
#106 of 111 mountain bike trails in Illinois
#12362 in the world

AA is designed to be a trail that can host NICA races. It is a flowing trail that is wide in most places and follows the contours of the many gullies emptying into the lake. The are several gorgeous lake views on the way. On the return, look for the ruins of a 1950s International L110 pickup. The trail ends by emerging from the woods just a few feet from the beginning. The trail may be ridden in either direction.

    This trail is an attempt at a beginner trail. It could be one if the builders would have openedbthe trail corridor up a little in a few places, rerouted the trail to create reduced grades, widened the trail tread, and removed the off camber sections. As it is, by IMBA standards, it is intermediate. The builders also have no idea how to build berms in the corners some of the berms are borderline dangerous and one setnof sterp downhill corners is terribly laid out and definitely solidly intermediate level. If you are a beginner be aware this is not truly a beginner level trail.

      Beginner trails in most states would eat you alive! Stay on the velodrome track if you think these are dangerous/intermediate. IMBA ratings always allow for some more difficult features or sections.
