MTB mecca for the area, great trails. 20 miles of trail. Trails are open from mid-April to mid-February. Trails are closed during and after rain.

There is a special loop for young riders. It's a .4-mile loop behind the Muir shelter. Young riders have the option of riding the a level trail or taking short loops off the main trail to test skills riding in sand, over rocks, narrow beams, and logs.

A state trail pass is required for riders 16 years of age and older.

Mountain Biking Reviews for Kettle Moraine South Trailhead Wisconsin
This is an awsome set of trails to vist, but the worst description ever. The place described is actually called "the Kettle Moraine State Forest--Southern Unit, John Muir Trail Stystem" There are miles of trails open to Mtn biking, and hiking (although not recommended for hikers due to the high volume of mtn bikers, it is often mayhem for unsuspecting hikers). When the trail is snow covered, it is still open for mtn bikers, and snowshoers. The Muir trails are NOT for snowmobiles, although there are snowmobile trails in the Kettle Moraine State Forest-Southern Unit. But trust me, if you go out looking for info on the "kettle moraine south trailhead" you are going to get lost, and end up on a trail that is not open for the type of use you are looking for. Find correct information on the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources OFFICIAL website! Fees are required and enforced, and when trails are closed, you and you are biking on them, you will get fined. But--if you go out there with a little knowledge you'll have a great time.

There are miles and miles of interconnected snowmobile trails in the area that will allow you to visit the nearby towns. Trails are usually groomed by local clubs.

Anyone born on or after January 1, 1985, must have a snowmobile safety certificate in order to operate a snowmobile in Wisconsin. The certificate must be carried while operating the snowmobile.

Decent hiking, but better MTB. There are a lot of different trails to take. Goes through pine, prairies and southern hardwood settings.
