Average Rating:    (2.67 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 3

RASC is in the middle of making this system. We have about 4.5 miles completed. One-half to one mile is beginner and the rest is intermediate with a additional downhiller course with ''b'' line. Except for the downhill course the system is set up in loops, is well marked and starts just west of the main lodge. We have approximately 12 miles planned to build. So far the system is open on weekends only but could change. Check skisteeplechase.com for more details.

Summary:
Good trail with alot of potential. Nice long downhill that rolls with the terrain so it is not gravity all the way. The whole system is roughly a big loop about 5 miles. All single track that is not turned into a highway like lebanon hills. The downhill on the far side of the ski area is hard to find and could use some work. Go all the way to last lift and ride straight into the woods. One sketcy spot followed by alot of table top jumps that I couldn't carry speed on. Gets a 4 rating because it was fairly short and the cost.
I'll be back to ride it again.
$5/day to ride

Recommended Route:
Start on the west side of the chalet and just follow the loop a few times.

Other recommended trails in the same area:

Summary:
I rode this trail the weekend they opened it. Much of the trail system isnt completed yet, but the parts that were finished were really well put together. These trails will be the equal of anything in this part of the state when finished. The singletrack is well thought out, kind of twisty but not too tight. The downhill course is short but a blast to ride. I cant wait till they get all the trails finished. I would rate it better than Holzinger lodge in Winona, probably on a par with hpt in LaCrosse.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Memorial park in Redwing, HPT in LaCrosse Holzinger Lodge in Winona.
