More About Elm Creek Singletrack trail

Designed and maintained in partnership with volunteers from Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists (MORC), the trail provides an intimate experience with the natural surroundings for mountain bikers, hikers, snowshoers and trail runners. The 2.2 miles of trail rated “easy” are also designed to be accessible to riders using adapted hand-powered mountain bikes. The sustainable design of this trail reduces erosion and maintenance needs and makes the trail experience more enjoyable.

Winter Trail Use

Help us protect groomed mountain bike trails in the winter. Overinflating tires, riding in warm temperatures and wearing boots can leave tracks that damage groomed trails. Here are few ways you can help:

  • Reduce your tire pressure.
  • Ride when temperatures are below freezing.
  • Wear snowshoes when hiking on singletrack trails.
