    Flood

    If I remember right it may be the town that got hard hit by recent down pour and flooding.
    I feel bad for those towns that were hit hard. As one of the corn growers growled, MN corn growers could either have had too much rain or the lack there of.

    I've got a friend that lives at the foot of the trails, and he says that they're mostly OK. Some washed out sections, but considering the fact that they got like a FOOT (yes 12") of rain, they faired amazingly well. By the time you get there, they may be ridable. We've still been getting rain daily...sucks. My trails are completely water logged.
    Just a regular guy.

    Follow that link for the trailhead. Holzinger Lodge Trails are easily accessible from town and I think you'll find yourself pleasantly surprised by them. The trails are not very well marked so you might stop in at Adventure Cycle and Ski in town for a heads up on good routes. Otherwise check the trail review of it on mtbr for some suggested routes as well.

    Never mind I misread the title, the mn didn't register in my head as MN and I don't know how to delete my post.
