This 0.1 mile mountain biking trail takes a cyclist through the beginner skills area within the north parking lot area of the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Miner’s Mountain Rally Center.
The purpose of this loop is to provide a beginner mountain biker all the different, natural (dirt, rock, bridge) surfaces they will encounter on the real singletrack trails—while still in a small loop within the safety of the Rally Center.
It’s recommended that if a mountain biker is having a difficult time advancing through this beginner loop, they should stay on this loop to master their skills prior to heading out on the actual trails.
The loop starts and finishes in the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area (CCSRA) Miner’s Mountain Rally Center. A Minnesota State Park vehicle permit is required to park a car or truck in this area.
Prior to parking within the Miner’s Mountain Rally Center stop and purchase a State Park Vehicle Permit at the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Office at 307 3rd Street, Ironton, MN 56455 or call 218-546-5926 to confirm their open office hours.
Once your State Park permit is in hand, simply drive a few blocks north on HWY 30/Irene Avenue in Ironton. The entrance to the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area will be to your left after you drive past the last stop sign within the city of Ironton. The entrace to the CuyunaCountry State Recreation Area is super close to town, but it’s kind of easy to miss the entrance as well.
