This trail is just plain fun. In fact, if I had a carbon copy of this trail in my backyard I don’t think I would ever leave the house!

Great green trail (as most greens at Cuyuna are). Good riding in itself but also acts as the spine of this cluster to get from trail to trail. My one beef with this cluster is that you can’t (that I could figure out; maybe a dirt road is the way) do the East section and then the west section of trails here. Therefore, you have to start with the west section first as Galloping Goose will transfer you west to east. Strange since the trailhead parking lot is east. Again, locals may know how to manage this easier, but I finally took the trail on the south side of the lake to get to the west side.

Great trail; really well built, flowy. Don’t forget to take Winze though part way through! (Unless you’re a beginner).

On the DNR Maps, this is called Galloping Goose.

The last 1000 ft or so on the east end between switchback-south and dragline is actually two-way - allowing access from Portsmouth Campground.

Best nang for your buck climb to downhill ratio, love the berms all the way down too, great addition! Only downside is if you choose to stay on Galloping goose you have to go through the horrendous unpumpable rollers

My one complaint is that I love Winze and if you want to do it over again you have to do the whole loops because this is one way, even if they just made the section in between the entrance and exit two way it would help a lot. If your not factoring that into it it’s a good trail.
