3. Conquer Your Mountain Bike
Times Vary, Iron Range
Avid mountain bikers are buzzing about the state-of-the-art network of mountain bike trails at Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area at Crosby, near the Brainerd Lakes area. This 22-mile trail network winds through a landscape created by 70 years of iron ore mining. This man-made terrain consists of old mining pits and tall piles of ruddy rock excavated from the pits. Nature is working on reclaiming the area: water has filled the pits and turned them into 15 deep lakes, and trees and shrubs have taken root on the rugged landscape. As it turns out, it’s a landscape perfect for crafting a maze of trails to conquer by bike.
