“A short, twisty trail that runs through the woods and along the lake.”
— Jake Woldstad
A quiet park with a nice picnic shelter.
South Shore is a short trail that runs along the base of the hill you descend as you enter the park. There is a branch from Holeshot
that will bypass the ending of that trail and connect you to this trail.
A log pile about 16" high awaits as you travel along the base of the hill, which can be avoided because the trail splits to allow you to go over or around the obstacle. As you travel along the shoreline, there are a few places where the trail branches to include or avoid bumps, narrow paths along the water, and other features.
Several patches of soft, loose sand can foul up your balance if you are not paying attention. However, these are not in locations near more technical features where they would affect your ability to navigate an obstacle.
Two access points from South Shore provide access to the pump track in the center of this trail, built by the Menomonie Area Mountain Bike Association (MAMBA). I have never been able to master the rhythm on this track, but I've seen people with more skill than I navigate it without pedaling. It is not on a perfectly flat section, so there is some additional challenge both ascending and descending the pump track.
South Shore is laid out in such a way that you do not
need to ride the pump track if you do not wish to.
