Summary:
Nice windy figure-8 type loop through rolling farm hills. Suggest at least 2 loops, each lap is about 3.75 miles. Not technical but great if you live nearby. Hills are short and easy, but then again I'm from Colorado.

Recommended Route:
Don't be a sucker and come in on Hwy C and pay fees. Enter from southernmost entry off Cushing Rd side and dip in where road closure bars entry, the more northern park entrance on Cushing is closed to bikes. Entrance fees are for suckers!

Summary:
I have to agree with the other posters here. Nothing scary. Good training workout if it's close. A few pretty easy climbs, but I think I saw more horse poo than rocks or roots.
Don't take anyone's word, though...check it out for yourself.

Recommended Route:
For God's sake; if I can do the whole thing, anyone can.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
John Muir!!!

Summary:
This trail is definitely not technical but is a great aerobic workout if you want it to be. There are some long uphills that take a little work to climb but there is nothing that makes it challenging besides that. 95% is in a rolling field so you can't help but get bored with the scenery. If you live close by its not a bad ride but otherwise its not worth the trip.

Recommended Route:
Outer loop is the longest and has the most elevation changes.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Muir, Emma Carlin, and Evergreen Park (Sheboygan). If you want technical, go to Evergreen park, it's a blast!!

Summary:
Don't confuse cross country ski trail with MTB trail. the only open MTB trail in this park is West of Hwy C..mostly flat, rolling field with very little climbing. Nice aerobic workout, but not technical

Recommended Route:
Open bike trail West of parking lot.
