    Levis Mound

    Planning my first trip up to levis mound this weekend. What is the best trail route to take? How well do the trails dry out if there is rain? and any other pointers I need know.

    Thanks.

    They are pretty fast drying, faster than most others in the area.

    Yellow jacket and swamp cut usually have a little mud on them just so you know.

    My favorites there are toad road, going down the hill and sidewinder, porky point? Is also very fun.

    Most of the others are good as well. Riding it all in a weekend is definetly doable if you have the fitness, you can put up more vertical feet at levis than you can just about anywhere in wi.

    You could follow the epic route as well, though I did that once, and never care to again. As far as another route, I'd look at the map and plan one, really there is no wrong way to ride the trails there.

    is the trail fee at levis the same as the fee at Kettle? In other words, if I get a year round trail pass and parking sticker at kettle, would I be good a Levis as well? Or are they separate fees?

    Levis is a county park, so the Kettle sticker wouldn't work. It's $5/day and well worth it.
    whatever...

    I'll be visiting both and was trying to figure out whether to do day fees or buy a year sticker for the state parks. This was helpful for me, thanks for the reply!

    Levis is my local ride and my favorite route is upper glen to lower glen to lower Hermosa to wolf run to buck hill up to sidewinder. Then the Hermosa's back down to dead turkey up toad road(fun tech climb) then it's a toss up for me between dropping down corkscrew or cliffhanger, but I'd definitely recommend taking both of those downhill as they are a riot! Trails dry out super fast, 30 minutes after a rain makes for perfect riding at levis.
