    Honestly, just explore. I could list out a killer loop for you, but not knowing what you're looking for, the odds of hitting your desires spot on are slim to none. The trails vary to some degree on terrain and difficulty from section to section. Generally speaking the SW quadrant is more technical and not as fast.

    The trail maps are pretty solid in relation to the singletrack and XC ski marking. One cool thing about 9 Mile is no one trail is over about 1/2 mile. You can explore, and divert very easy, or bale out on a XC ski trail, or loop back and hit it again with more gusto!

    Don't miss trails 1, 2, & 3 on the opposite side of the road from the chalet/parking lot. Watch out for the rock gardens on #1 though - some real pedal smashers in there.

    Pace yourself, there are a lot of miles of trail out there. Have fun too!

    No real stunts per say. They used to have small ladder bridge over a down tree but the tree was sanitized in the offseason so the need for the bridge disappeared.

    Again, you really just have to ride the network to find the stuff you like. If you ride at a pretty good pace, and don't take a crazy amount of breaks, you can cover all the singletrack in around 2 1/2 - 3 hours. The most technical trails are #1, 11, 12, 16, and the section between K and G. No man made jumps exist, except for makeshift pile of dirt by C and Red Bud Rd. Natural woops do exist on many of the trails. Trails with jumpable sections would be: #2, 3, 5 (ride CW = clockwise), 6 (CW), and 7 (several)(CCW).

    A fun, rather fast downhill section is on #11. Ride 11 towards 12 to hit the downhill.

    A few newer trails exist that haven't made the map yet. Like I said before, explore them.

    Don't know if you have a map, but here's a link to the latest and greatest the county is putting out. http://www.co.marathon.wi.us/is/pks/pdf/NineMileRec.pdf

    There's always something thats ridable at Nine Mile......even when thing are very rainy, the gravely soil at nine mile allows for good footing on portions of the system. There are trails that cannot be ridden when its this wet, but there are others that are more than fine. That's one of the many reasons gnome-fest has been held there.
