“Mountain bike trails are worth the trip!”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

The Cuyuna bike trails have turned a sow's ear into a silk purse! The trails are beautifully designed and wind through northern forests of pine, birch and hardwoods while skirting gorgeous lakes that were once ugly open pit iron mines. The hills were once waste heaps from mining operations, but, are now nicely forested.

“GREAT VACATION”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

We loved every minute of the MTB trails, scenery and wildlife. MTB traiols are well marked and kept up. Roads could have better signage, but we explored and had a great time.

“Amazing and FREE!”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

The mountain bike trails are not for the faint of heart, but they are amazing!! Additionally, there are paved trails and unpaved trails for those looking for a more tame ride. Beautiful views, too! Can't recommend this enough!

“Neat area for biking, kayaking, and fishing.”
Reviewed 25 July 2013 via mobile

My family enjoyed biking and fishing at this really neat state rec area. Lots of bike tails. The really neat thing about the trails is they have trails for all skill levels. From a paved trail to easy dirt to more advanced dirt to insane dirt.

Lakes are very beautiful and didn't seem to get much use. Very few kayaks or boats to be seen. Lakes are very scenic and relaxing. 10 mph limit so don't expect to zip around fast.

All in all a great place to visit and its free!

“Awesome bike trails!”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

Great scenery and challenging trails. The mining lakes were beautiful and the trails provide all levels of challenge. Just know the "easy" trails are also challenging but very reasonable.
