When you’re riding over and through the monster boulders of Rocky Flats, you’re riding over bedrock that was once hundreds of feet beneath the surface. This man-made plateau is where miners dumped rock during the final days of mining in the Mahnomen Unit and we’re so glad they did! #cuyuna #adventure #advtwnusa #trailtuesday #mtb #mtbtrails #mtbtwnmin ...

Cuyuna’s sister city is Bentonville. Bentonville is in Arkansas. The capital of Arkansas is Little Rock. Little Rock is in Cuyuna. 🤯 Our own Little Rock trail is just a b-line off Haul Road. This trail incorporates flat, red rocks for a fun-yet-technical rock feature.

Switchbacks provide a way up a steep hill without going straight up. These zig-zag roadways are commonly used by trucks and railcars in open-pit mines. True to its name, Switchback serpentines back and forth, connecting Portsmouth and Mahnomen Trail Units. Along the way, catch views of Pennington and Mahnomen Mine Lakes.

Note: The mine lake pictured here is Minnesota’s deepest inland lake at a mere 525 feet deep. Go, Mahnomen Mine Lake, go! #cuyuna #adventure #advtwnusa #trailtuesday #mtb #mtbtrails #mtbtwnmin

Mining trucks used haul roads—also known as “haulage roads” or “haul tracks”—to move rock to the crusher or to remove overburden. Cuyuna’s Haul Road is a wonderful 2.5-mile singletrack loop with flow trail and views of Manuel Mine Lake and @redriderresort. After successfully completing the adaptive cycling trails in the Sagamore Unit, Haul Road is one of the best trails for new cyclists to begin their singletrack Cuyuna off-road cycling adventure.
