Review: Decent singletrack thru woods. Assume it could be unrideable after heavy rains for a long time. Very similar to River Bottoms in Minneapolis.

Review: This was a very nice beginner/intermediate trail. It has a few technical features and some really nice flow. I will definitely ride it more often.

Review: Not a bad place to hit if your in the greater Mankato area. The various loops are mostly flat being 90% of them in the overflow/flood plain of the Minnesota river. Some spots were muddy, but the trails were not rutted out with deep tire grooves. I did all the loops a few times at an easy-going pace of 8-9 mph with the exception of loop C (which I was told was overgrown quite a bit) in about an hours time. Of course you can omit some of the loops and customize your length on the trail if you'd like. Overall these loops are a great mix of tight swerves, loop backs and small rolling moguls. I was very impressed with the trail markings as well as the various bridges made to get across some water channels and muddy areas (kudos to those that put those in and maintain them!). Loop A was deemed the most difficult and for those that hit any of the trails in the Twin Cities, I would be consider it maybe an intermediate level... purely because it's only a short distance of some rocket and hillside terrain. I would definitely hit this trail again. Great for the beginner or someone looking to get their feet wet in the sport.

Review: Ride in winter. A real nice snowbike trail. Trail is mostly flat as it filled the river bottoms. It has some fun rollers. Tight and twisty in places to up the fun factor.

Review: Fast flowing singletrack where you can stay on the gas nearly all the time without ever really needing to touch your brakes; making it a good spin workout. Rolling terrain and grade reversals give it a bit of a pumptrack feel.
