Grand Beach XC Loop Details
Great single track trail system. Popular site for the first XC race of the season (first larger trail system to dry out in spring).
The vast majority of the trails are easy "green" level for technical riding. There are a few short sections of rock garden that can be quite difficult to ride for beginners, but can be walked over without any trouble.
There is a combination of double track trails and single track, some hard pack, some loam, and some sandy sections.
A few hills with gentle grades, and a couple that are quite steep and challenging (but only about 20m in length).
The "carpet climb" is a favorite steep grunter.
About a 1 hour drive North of Winnipeg on HWY 59 (also known as HWY 12 as the HWY changes from a dived four lane to a single lane). Watch for the HWY 12 turn to the East with exit signs for Grand Beach.
