Overview

This is the longest cross country riding loop, 100% singletrack, right in the City of Fitchburg and easily accessed by Madison residents.

Description

The route is Rewind, Northwoods, Sandy Climb, Bottoms Up, Dizzy, and Lakeview in that order. You can start on any of the trails to begin the loop.

The six trails are each unique. You'll find flat and twisty, flat and straight, easy and challenging uphills, bermed downhills on this ride.

For a beginner, start with the 1.5 mile Dizzy and Lakeview loop. This loop is popular for families and kids. Expand to the other trails as your skills progress.

If you want to mix things up or ride something more technical, look for the alternate lines which cut down the face of the ridge. These lines are accessed at the top of the hill and are much more advanced.
