Mountain Bike Enthusiasts

Mountain bike enthusiasts can enjoy both handmade and machine made single track trails systems or go back country for an experience that will speak to the more adventurous types. A great example are the mountain bike trails at the Nordic Heritage Center include over 20 miles of hand-made and machine-made single track. The trails wind through different forest types and vary from smooth and fluid to narrow and technical. Beginner loops include the family friendly Moose Loop and Eric's Around the Mountain Trail. Moderate to expert line options such as log skinnies, exposed bedrock outcrops, and natural drops can also be found on some of the trails. A skills/terrain park is available for practicing dirt jumps and other technical features such as skinnies, log obstructions, stairs, teeter totters, etc. It is always a hit with the kids and anyone looking for a challenge. Other features of interest include "The Enchanted Forest" (don't miss the tree gnomes!), and Vacationland, an intermediate/expert loop that circles one of the ridges on the property.
