Review: UPDATE: Wrote a review last year and gave only 4/5 stars. I was frustrated by the lack of good markings, and still think these could use some improvement in differentiating the similarly color marked trails. (trail difficulty markings would help this immensely). However, after my second yearly trip visiting the trails, they started to make more sense (along with in depth studying of the maps before my ride). I didn't get lost. But that's not to say a new rider might not fare that well. That said, without as much worry about trail marking this time around, my impression improved to 5/5 stars.

Review: I rode 'most' of the trails in this system over two days. I found the trails I rode were really well done, and fun. The downhills were on point (with berms and nice flow), but the uphills felt sluggish and didn't ride as well as some of the uphills I've seen designed of late. I've ridden trails where the uphill grind seems minimized by well thought out pumps, or by switchbacks, but these trails left me feeling like I was often hitting an uphill that put me out of rhythm (not sure if that makes sense). Overall, I really liked these trails and will be back. The downhills and flow definitely outweigh the slightly off uphills. These trails are a gem. My only "major" critique is the trail markings. The trail designers put a lot of effort into marking the trails (and there are a LOT of markings and maps). Problem is these maps are small (hard to read for those with eyes over 40), and the colors of some trails are similar to others. The maps were useless to me, and I just relied on the larger colored arrows placed everywhere. I ran into an issue when I was looking for the Green "Expert" trail, when I was directed to a "Beginner" trail using a different shade of green arrow. This long beginner trail was hell... long uncut grass through a boggy sluggish never-ending hill, brimming with mosquito death squads... (honest folks, I'm not one to get lost on MTB trails). Had I written the review immediately after that portion of my ride, this trail would have gotten 2/5. Luckily the trail system redeemed itself by me continuing my ride on a few other loops of the system. In short, this is the best trail I've ridden in far northern WI (in the last 5 years), but I'd suggest the trail owners add trail difficulty markers to the colored arrows.

Review: Really nice trail system with something for everyone. Most of the trails were open and in good condition when I rode today, but a few of the more technical ones were still closed from spring thaw. The owner seems really nice and did a great job designing the trails. Definitely worth riding if you're in the area!

Review: Who would have thought some of the best snow biking conditions of the year would be in April. Awesome fun groomed trails. Fun and flowy. Nothing difficult is groomed.

Review: Trails are very well kept and more is being added all the time. Good smooth xc riding with a few jump sections and even a small downhill spot.

Review: Made a detour here on the way to Copper Harbor. Awesome trail with flow, features. Taken care of very well. Cool owner. Wish it wasn't almost 5 hours from my house, otherwise I'd ride it as much as possible! Good place to work on skills, even has some jump lines.

Review: Beautiful north woods scenery! My wife and I couldn't get into the flow here. Too many intersections means stopping frequently to figure out where you are and where you want to go next (Cuyuna has the same problem and is removing many intersections this year). Some berms are needing rebuilt after the spring storms. A long drive for very few miles.
