The best singletrack within a two-hour drive in Northeastern Minnesota.

Features -none-

Family Friendly Three short cuts drop the mileage and the elevation to a family friendly level (see Easy Rider).

Overview

This trail is just over six miles and includes hundreds of flowing turns on groomed singletrack (mowed, sprayed, and leveled on a regular basis by the local club). This is based next to a man-made "mountain" which is ~60 feet tall, and the trail goes up it several times yielding ~250' of elevation per lap.
Best ridden when dry because the clay sticks to your tires.

Need to Know

Don't ride if wet, otherwise you'll be "tarred and feathered" by Mother Nature.

Description

There is the option to cut the mileage significantly and avoid the hill climb by following the Easy Rider shortcut, which is posted on signs. Basically, it includes three right-hand shortcuts (Easy Rider Bypass).

Be sure to check out the leaderboard for the full lap on Strava with fast laps considered to be under 30 minutes.

The most technical features are the switchback climbs and the downhill jump constructed of a recycled wooden front porch from the locals.

History & Background

Significant local efforts were made by Eric Borud, Pat Adrian, Marty Sampson, Mark Anderson and most recently Jonathon Eaton in the way of trail maintenance. Also, huge kudos to Robert Honstrom for mowing and winter grooming with an eye for perfection.
