“Great Biking!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We made the trip here with some friends to camp and bike. Part of the area is being worked on by construction crews, but there are alternative routes to get where you want to go.

There are no shortage of trails for every sort of rider from beginner to advanced. The scenery is great, especially from the top of the hill. Of course the best part after getting to the top of the hill is to rocket down the trails.

We rode for several hours and wished we had more time. We had planned to come back the following day, but an overnight thunderstorm put an end to that. We are far from experts, but this was one of the best trails we have ridden and we will definitely be back.

“Family Reunion”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

First off I would like to say that I was probably the only person in the area who did not do the bike trails. However, the group camp site was fantastic! I loved sleeping near the water and hearing the frogs sing all night. This was a great place to relax and tell stories around the campfire. Even though the campground is close to town it doesn't feel like it.

“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!
