WARNING ⚠: Please read the IMBA Responsible Riding Rules of the Trail prior to riding.
WARNING ⚠: Please read the safety warnings on the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area Trail Map.

This 13+ mile mountain biking loop takes you throughout the entire Cuyuna singletrack system in search of the big scenic mine-lake overlooks within the former open-pit and shaft mining area. The loop starts and finishes in the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area (CCSRA) Miner’s Mountain Rally Center. A Minnesota State Park Permit is required to park a car or truck in this area.

The entrance to the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area will be to your left after you drive past the last stop sign within the City of Ironton via HWY 30/Irene Avenue. The entrance to the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area is super close to town, but it’s kind of easy to miss the entrance as well.

Depending on your mountain biking speed, this could be a couple of hours, or a full day experience.

The majority of this loop is one-way, one-direction singletrack trail except for a section of trail by the Portsmouth Campground.
