  • Cuyuna has the best MTB trails around, and they are building more. Layout is great. Lot's to choose from. You won't get bored, even on the greens.  more »
  • My wife and 3 kids (9,11,13) rented a yurt in Cuyuna State Rec Area. Highly recommend for mountain biking. Excellent trails and tons of fun. All level of trails, though maybe not right for little tiny...  more »
  • Signage isn't great and you check in in town, not the site. Group Campsite was nice. Lovely pond, but the frogs are nocturnal and noisy! Tour of the mines was really good. Be sure to go. Don't wear wh...  more »

  • Great area with unique maroon color soil from the Iron. Great historic sight, good fishing, fun adventuring around the roads, and my favorite, the scuba diving! If you are interested, Brainerd's MN School of Diving has classes that come here. Great water clarity. Roads can have massive puddles if it rains, so trucks or 4 wheel drive is best if you are going deep into the pits.
  • Beautiful scenery - the bike trails are super fun and well made. Lots of great fishing, swimming spots, hiking, paved walking trails. The view at the top of "Spill Hill" is a must see!
  • Awesome time riding these beautiful trails. The scenery is not to be missed, the trails are well groomed, well marked, and the people are friendly. We brought our 6 and 8 year old, and they could keep up without too much trouble. We will definitely be coming here as often as we can.
  • Great mountain biking trails. Summer is extremely fun. Winter riding would be much better but smaller tire sizes are restricted
  • Beautiful lake, good mountain biking trails. Not very beginner's friendly as the green trail rides next to a drop off to the lake. Duluth is better.
