This is a prairie trail that follows the contours of a coulee and climbs a butte. You can connect the singletrack and farm roads to make nearly eight miles of trail. We will be adding more singletrack as time and resources allow.

Summary:
As others have stated, this is a great beginner trail. Scenic, easily accessible from Minot, and great exposure to single track riding in general. When I have an itch to go for an evening ride, this is my go to spot. Be careful on the creek crossing though, make sure you stay inside the designated area, otherwise you will be getting wet! The trail does have a lot of relatively tight twists to it but all in all it is a great trail, exceptional considering the local alternatives.

Recommended Route:
Take the first left you can once you start on the trail, from there, whichever choices you make, you will end up where you started.

Summary:
Not a bad trail considering the surrounding area. It is a little twisty going in and out of the coulies. It would be nice if some of the turns followed the terrain more. There is a pretty cool creek crossing but there is potential to get thrown off due to some larger rocks on the opposite side if you try and rip right through it. Good climb to the top of the plateau with a fun downhill on the opposite.

Summary:
A little too twisty to enjoy the scenery, which winds through coulees and pasture land. You will travel through more cow $hit than you've seen in your life so fenders might be a good option.

Summary:
This is a great trail for the area. Enjoyable late afternoon ride for beginners. My wife and I try to get out as often as possible in the summer as it is only a short distance from Minot. It is great that the land owners have allowed this excellent use of land. Also, the new extension is also great, just seemed hard to find last time we were there.

Recommended Route:
Same as other recommendations.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
None, unless you go to Jamestown or Bismarck, that's what makes this trail great.
