See Hillside Park for updated reviews. This trail had been around and has only gotten better with some old school edge still.

Great trail. This was the first real single track that I have ridden, and it is amazing. Constant switchbacks, climbs, decents, log crossings. You name it, Blast has it. Bring plenty of water, because theres no turning back. The last day I rode it it was 95deg out, and i wish i had brought more. Others have said it, but plan on stopping to drink. Theres no time to do it going. enjoy

Great Trail. Good climbs, lots of swithbacks, and dry even after its had a good rain. Bring your bug spray!!! Its a nice little 6 mile loop for a quicker ride if you don't have all day.

Customer Service

Once you actually find it, the trail is really well marked.

This trail has a lot of short steep climbs and descents. It's a great trail for training. All of it's wooded so chances of seeing deer or other animals is very high. Best suited for intermediate or advanced riders.

Customer Service

There is only one route. Go counter-clockwise. The trail runs across the dirt raod that runs by the parking lot closest to the highway. This is a good place to start.

First off, what this trail is not: it is not as long or diverse as Milaca, it is not as technical as Lone Lake or The Farm. What this trail is: fun, fun, fun. If you have forgotten what it is like to have fun on your bike, you can certainly rekindle those feelings here. The trail is not advanced technically or aerobically, but it is 6+ miles of sweet, twisty, and rolling singletrack. Some log crossing and short curvy downhills to boot. Hammer on uphill switchbacks, rail the sweepers, dodge trees, this trail is just plain fun. If you want to have fun, this is a trail to visit. Thanks to the trailbuilders!

This is a very new trail and is quite a lot of fun. It would appeal to intermediate to advanced riders. It is heavily wooded, with lots of switchbacks, and some moderate climbs. The trails flow rather well. Up and down, up and down etc. There are few log crossing and few areas to get a little air if you so choose. Overall, this is a great trail.

Customer Service

Trail is one-way only. Enter trail on the right side of the fire road. Follow the signs/arrows.

This is the best trail I have ridden in MN yet. It is 7 miles of real trail. You don't have to hunt for the trail, or spurs, this is 7 miles of up and down. Not super technical, but try and do it in 50 min or less, and you have a very serious work out on your hands.

This is 7 Miles into the woods, and the only way out is to finish they trail, so make sure you are up to the challenge, bring water in the summer, and bug spray, and tools. I would hate to walk my bike out of this one, since the bugs eat you alive once you slow to a walk. I walked one hill :( and got swarmed,

This trail is great time. I found it about a month ago and since i live a short distance away i visit it nearly everyday. It is smooth and fast and is very fun. The switchbacks are rad with some difficult climbs. Come ride, you won't regret it.

WOW! It is a amazing there is such a good ride so close to civilization. You're just behind Home Depot and Walmart but you feel like you are in the middle of no-where. This is six miles of wooded single track. The trail was plently technical for me with lots of switchbacks and uphill hairpin turns. We road it once right after a rain and that made it much more difficult. Very slippery. My praises to the Blast Bike Club. These folks have done a great job in developing this trail and others. Where are they going to build their next trail?

Customer Service

Once you are in the parking lot just follow the signs. The Trail starts behind the portapot.
