This trail is pretty flat and not very technical. But it does have some good distance and it is pretty wide open so it is fun just to go ripping through there at a good pace. Just a fun trail to hit if you are checking out the Brownie Lake trails. Just look out for walkers and their dogs and be prepared for dirty looks.

Head towards the city on the paved Cedar Lake trail. As you are passing Cedar Lake on your right, you will see a dirt trail entrance on the right side of the paved trail.

This trail is mostly for casual riders. It is very lengthy and hooks up with other paved trails throughout the city. It is all blacktop and is great for both fast riders and ma & pa strolls. The only challenge you'll have is bucking the wind on some of the areas near the lakes, no hills at all.

Single track riders head up just a couple miles to the north and ride on the Theodore Wirth Park trail. It is a new track (2005) that provides a great challenge through a dense forest.

Some intersing single track branching off wood chip hiking path. there are sevral steep mini hills and junps that BMXers have built up around the area too. Used to be some other trails by RR tracks but they vaporized when the city decided to PAVE a path here! UGH!

At the bridge underpass, look to the north and aim it towards the undulating singletrack. Your riserbars must get nicked your your going too slow. This section finnishes FAST, so carry up the hill and cross the hiway on the pavement. Dip into the forest with a burning desire to burn one on top... and EXPLORE! some sections are best when hooked up with others, it's up to you to like what you do. This will take you near the BOG, so be nice to hikers and their dogs (mainly on the wood-chippy stuff). Follow along northbound and cross Glenwood. Take it left and on the right see the trail - be the trail. Some locals will try and try again to clean certain sections all the way through, but remember, less gears, more beers. You will not want to cross 55 on a red light. so go and feed the tight trails on the left with some of your most color explitives, it's good and it's what we got close to home. Well then just watch for the beachcombers and do it again on the way out. it's good that good thing's still happen.

I like to warm up with some laps around the bmx course between the rails and the lake. Then I dip past the Mud Pit to chat with the "crazy counter guy," then a heads up ride along the lake to the main Cedar Trail.

Cedar Lake has some fun stuff alright, watch out for civilians though! The singletrack loop around Brownie Lake is pretty cool. On the side by the office building is some new singletrack, awesome stuff, technical and one huge log crossing and no hikers on this stuff!

If you're some sort of beginner there's a small area that works great for the tech'riding.

Customer Service

If your'e already on two wheels then aproach this from downtown,that way you can take a good look at what won't be there.There's a paved path from the backside of that parking garage on7'th-n-1'st.If you have any kinks in the system, then this short jaunt will give you a chance to get rid of them

Very fun

Customer Service

I park at the office building in the back and go around brownie lake, cross over railroad tracks(under bridge) and follow the path going towards the city, then take the path behind the the woods going the opposite way until you get to a crossing for cars. On your left there will be some very nice trails and jumps. Must recommend.
