We made the trip here with some friends to camp and bike. Part of the area is being worked on by construction crews, but there are alternative routes to get where you want to go. There are no shortage of trails for every sort of rider from beginner to advanced. The scenery is great, especially from the top of the... More

First off I would like to say that I was probably the only person in the area who did not do the bike trails. However, the group camp site was fantastic! I loved sleeping near the water and hearing the frogs sing all night. This was a great place to relax and tell stories around the campfire. Even though the... More

The Cuyuna bike trails have turned a sow's ear into a silk purse! The trails are beautifully designed and wind through northern forests of pine, birch and hardwoods while skirting gorgeous lakes that were once ugly open pit iron mines. The hills were once waste heaps from mining operations, but, are now nicely forested.

We loved every minute of the MTB trails, scenery and wildlife. MTB traiols are well marked and kept up. Roads could have better signage, but we explored and had a great time.

The mountain bike trails are not for the faint of heart, but they are amazing!! Additionally, there are paved trails and unpaved trails for those looking for a more tame ride. Beautiful views, too! Can't recommend this enough!

My family enjoyed biking and fishing at this really neat state rec area. Lots of bike tails. The really neat thing about the trails is they have trails for all skill levels. From a paved trail to easy dirt to more advanced dirt to insane dirt. Lakes are very beautiful and didn't seem to get much use. Very few kayaks... More

Great scenery and challenging trails. The mining lakes were beautiful and the trails provide all levels of challenge. Just know the "easy" trails are also challenging but very reasonable.

My wife and I kayaked on Huntington Mine this July and we loved it. First, nobody else was on the water except for a couple of kids floating on some tubes. The path leading from the parking area to the landing was a little steep, but it had steps built in along the way to make it a fairly easy... More

The paved state trail, Cuyuna Lakes State Trail, runs from Riverton to Crosby - a distance of 6 miles. What a treat it was to discover this gem - gentle rolling trail, shaded on a hot day with wonderful lake views along the way. The recreation area is also used for mountain biking, fishing and even scuba diving. If you're... More
