      These trails were built primarily by those crazy folks at Little Ade’s Bike Shop, back when BMX was king. Dirksen became famous for its North-Shore style wooden stunts, but they have since been removed. Today it is still revered by mountain bikers and hikers. The trails here offer steep punchy climbs, grinding ascents, 180-degree tight twisty singletrack, some screaming descents, and lots of opportunity to catch air on dirt jumps.
