Summary:
Ummmm I dunno, this trail isn't too exciting for the $8 you have to pay to ride it. I'd say about 85% of it is uphill or some sort of climbing... with not much for the downhill or jump people out there. I didn't come across even one log obstacle or anything of that nature. There was a section called "the luge" which was the only fun part... watch the turns though, I actually managed to go over the bars going too fast around a blind corner that dropped suddenly!

But all in all... mostly just a workout ride, not much fun for having to pay... and even if you didn't have to I've been on a LOT more exciting trails.

Summary:
Yo yo yo,they got climbs that will make you cry, and downhills that you will your pants on. Great trails, well maintained and plenty of events year round. Thanks to Jon Romberg (Winner of the 1989 Mankato Downhill Trick Challenge)

Recommended Route:
Once you get into Mankato, give Bandit a call up on the CB. He knows where its at.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
JP money trails, on Riverfront past Pure Pleasure. They are currently being worked on. Mankato BMX track.

Summary:
I race this trail once a year in the MNSCS series I absolutely love this place two climbs but not bad you can do them in your big ring. Tight very smooth super fast singletrack. You could do this trail even if your a beginner or if your an expert it is a bunch of fun. I cant get enough of this trail system.

Recommended Route:
Just follow the first climb on the far left side of the mountain then just follow the trail you cant get lost

Summary:
This place is just FUN! Don't come if you're looking for technical. It's great riding for all levels and well, just plain FUN! It's a good workout and a few challenging uphills to make you feel like you really worked out! If you are advanced you must ride all the difficult downhills! My favorite - The Luge!! Watch out for some wicked downhill switchbacks, yikes! Everything is one way, follow the map! Pay at the chalet, facing the hills, there is a drop box for your $7 fee and plenty of maps! But where the hell is the Biffy? We pay $7 for the trails and get no place to piss?! Too much littering of gel shots here, pick up after yourself and throw away your own damn trash!! Anyway, back to the trails, this is good for beginners thru advanced riders. If you want technical, go to The Farm in Chaska. See ya!
