Overview

Fun, blufftop singletrack that meanders through a beautiful sections of meadow and wooded bluffland. This particular loop features a good mix of intermediate and expert level singletrack with the more difficult sections involving tight corners, sustained downhill and uphill sections, as well as rocky terrain(small rocks). Worth the drive.
Family Friendly: Pump track and Prairie Loop are good, beginner level options.
Dogs: Leashed

Rode up from the bottom. A great ride. Was having so much fun I rode until dark. Riding down Rotary Vista by the moonlight was invigorating! 13mi

Buckthorn is the best trail in the system. Super flowy and fast. It's a must do 5mi

Getting forecast...


 
Poorly signed. There is no map at the trail head and the signs within the trail have nothing in common what you see here. Bring a map, or you'll find yourself in a pasture... That being said its a good trail. It is tight, twisty, and technical as the description says. Several tight downhill switchbacks. A handful of technical features. Sep 1, 2015
A new map has been installed at the trailhead Jun 4, 2016
