Trail Type: Singletrack (XC/AM)

Trail Experience: A flowing easy rated trail. Some smaller climbs and descents to learn get used to and a few side hits for those who are are wanting to spice up a beginner rated trail. As this trail dances along the Cuyuna Lakes State Trail, it makes a good trail to try mountain biking in small "bites". Galloping Goose is the main access trail for Mahnomen Unit - South and Mahnomen Unit - North
