MTB Kettle Morraine Review

I went to Kettle Morraine this past sunday to do a little mountain biking. Thought I'd write a little review for those that have been thinking about going up there.

Had a good time. Scenery and atmosphere are second to none. The trails are very well groomed and laid out well with good trail signage. I wouldn't say it was difficult, but the more speed you want to carry the harder things get. There are some very technical spots and a few decent climbs. No real obstacles like downed logs or anything like that. A few places where you can get some air. All in all I think it was OK. The major downside is it is far, 2 hours away. So that was 2 hours to get there, 3 hours of riding, 1 hour for lunch and 2 hours to drive home. That's a whole day for only a few hours of fun time. Palos is far better in the fact that it's real close and it can get to be a lot of fun once you know where to go. Oh yeah, you have to pay to play at Kettle, $18 for two people with parking (+ gas ).

On the other hand the roads around the area are awesome for sportbikes. I may not be back for MTBing but for carving corners I'll do the 2 hour ride to get there.
