I have ridden there a couple times. Grew up down the road. Watch out for the horseback riders. They built the trail system and there is a lot of them sometimes. Lots of blind corners. There are about 12-15 mi of trail. It is rough and technical at speed because the horses run rain or shine. Makes for some interesting lines.

I thought I was the only that had ridden those... I live in Seattle now, but my parents live a mile or so from the TH.

Picklz, I thought ODF build those, not the horses. With the old skid roads and game trails, there's potential for way more trail then whats there right now. Sucks how the 4 legged rototillers tear them up though.

There used to be bunch of (unofficial) horse trail south of Lyons too, mostly in the old clearcuts, that was ok in the winter, and also some trail immediately to the south of Mill City on BLM/ODF/Weyco land, where the Pedalfest mtn bike races were held.

I know what you mean, I guess I ment to say that the horse club initiated the building of the trails and help maintain it for the most part. On the climb it sucks the way it is all ripped up but it makes the decents more entertaining.
