Welcome to Cuyuna Adventure Town USA®

miles of paved trail.
miles of natural shoreline.
miles of mountain bike trails.
mile gravel and asphalt grinder.
acres of adventure.

Tall green trees.

With 6,000 acres of mother nature’s
best man-made creation, you’ll never forget
Cuyuna’s distinct flavor of wild.

Clear blue lakes.

Cuyuna’s mine lakes are so deep they
tapped the wellspring of the gods. 40-foot
water clarity and unbelievable underwater adventures.

Some say our waters have magical powers.

Red dirt trails.®

It’s no secret what makes Cuyuna sizzle.
This year we celebrate a decade of being
the King of the Range by growing our
original 25 miles of trail to a solid 70.

That’s a whole lot more to love about Cuyuna.

Surrounded by a
purpose-built town
filled with purpose-
driven people

With makers, artisans, brewers, crafters,
writers, photographers, teachers, doctors,
nurses, engineers, and most importantly,

No matter where you stay, it’s ride in, ride out.

Get here and park the car until further
notice. When everything is connected, you’ll have a
profound ability to connect not only to the
Cuyuna outdoors, but to your friends, family
and ultimately, yourself.

A funky Friday with temps in the 30s, mini-snow-blizzards, then sun again. None the less the show must go on as we enjoyed a #Cuyuna Friday Happy Hour in the enchanted pines of the Yawkey Unit. So pretty in Yawkey, magic. #mountainbike #localtrails #adventure #usa And don`t forget to @ridetherange - @salsacycles - @teravail ...

The Opening Ceremony has commenced! Cuyuna Mountain Bike trails open tomorrow, Sat Apr 13th with some trails needing a bit more time to dry out. Read the full #Cuyuna details below thanks to our friends @cuyunalakesmtb - Go-CREW-Go! And please remember to @ridetherange /// @salsacycles @teravail

The Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike Trails will OPEN for the summer season on Saturday morning, April 13!
Fatbikes are suggested to help pack the trails and prevent rutting in the occasional muddy spot but they are not required.
There will be a few trails that will remain closed while they continue to dry out and firm up. Please stay off any trails that are taped off in order to prevent damaging the trail surface. The MN DNR and Crew Volunteers will continue to monitor those trails and will open them up as they are ready. At this point it looks like the following trails will remain closed: Cruser’s Kettle east of Cuyuna, Bison Run and Dynamite at Sagamore, Backcountry, Sinter, Sledgehammer and Portal of Mahnomen North. The short new segment of Galloping Goose that parallels the overburden road near county 128 (use the overburden road instead for 1/3mile), and a small segment of lower Bobsled at Yawkey will remain closed. You can connect to the Bobsled climb and downhill by using the Cuyuna Connector Return. All closed trails are clearly marked with yellow tape.

A huge THANK YOU to the MN DNR and Crew Volunteers who helped prepare the trails for the opening!
Thank you also to all Crew Members, Donors, and Crew Business Partners whose financial support makes 70 miles of world class singletrack possible in our small community! Please consider becoming a member of the Crew if you are not already at and please support the businesses that support trails!
We will continue to post trail updates as needed on our socials as well as on the “Trailbot” App!
Check out the Seasonal Trail Use Guidelines here

Have a great 2024 Red Dirt Season in Cuyuna!
