This is the Blue Loop at the Southern Kettle Moraine State Forest - John Muir Trailhead.

A fast rolling cross country trail system, best bike is probably a 29er hardtail or short travel full suspension (lots of single speed bikes too). Small to medium climbs. Trail surface varies from rocky/roots to smooth flowing fast sections. Couple sections with loose sand (The Beach) where you come through a section of pine trees.

This is a state park, so you'll need a state sticker and trail pass to mountain bike
