Cuyuna Trails. One of the latest IMBA efforts. Designated as a Ride Center. Grand Opening is less than 2 weeks away and the official opening was just yesterday. Lucky I had some work to do up in MN and the weather was great, so timing is everything as they say.
This is an area that was a source of iron ore. The trail is on the old tailings dump. The MORC crew came up to help.
The old pit and the height of the tailings dump.
Left the trial-head with a guy that got there the same time I did/. Jeff from Minneapolis. Was fun riding with Jeff. He kept an eye out making sure I was coming up behind him.
Cool groove of birch trees.
Jeff was the navigator. The trail is a maze of spiral loops heading up and down the tailings.
Some locals coming down from the view point in an old pickup, or did we step back in time when the ore was still coming out of the ground?
