    I doubt there are any out there. I've been active in mountain biking for 20 years in the Twin Cities and have a good idea what exists within several hours of the Twin Cities and I have never heard anything about trails in or near Morris.

    I've got in-laws that live in Morris and have spent a bit of time there. If you like cows, corn, or soybeans its the place for you. Also, there's pheasant hunting when in season. Not much good for mountain biking at all. Closest official trails are probably the Jail Trail in St. Cloud, MN. There are no bike shops in Morris. Jakes bikes in Alexandria is the closest shop I recall in that area.

    One last thing: I just googled and found the RUNESTONE AREA MOUNTAIN BIKE ORGANIZATION (RAMBO). They look to be the best source for trails in that area. Good luck!

    That's farm country so there should be a ton of gravel road mileage. Not sure if it's flat or hilly out there though.

    Lots of great places for gravel grinding around Morris. It is mostly plains and some rolling hills in the area though it gets hillier further east. The wind also makes up for the lack of hills.

    Looks like Dolven is a wildlife management area for pheasant and waterfowl. There are quite a few of them up there. I have no idea whether it's legal to ride in them. In general you see people in them during hunting season.

    6100.3400 TRAIL USES.

    So I wonder if there is any trail?
