Movil Maze Recreation Area
May 18, 2017
For all of you thrill seekers and bicyclists that want to experience a ride in the woods, Movil Maze is the perfect place to complement your Minnesota Northwoods adventure. A park of nearly 1000 acres with as many ways to get lost is just a few miles from Bemidji and 1/2 a mile north of Highway 71 on Wildwood Road. It often hosts Bemidji High School's Lumberjack cross-country ski team in the winter and for a number of years now, has a beautiful, volunteer built and maintained, set of single-track bicycle trails as well as a bike terrain park for those who like to play in the summertime.
The 6+ miles of mountain bike trails travel a colorful forest floor with occasional rocks and tree-roots to navigate. There are also plank bridges and wooden ramps scattered along the trail to test your nerve and get your adrenaline pumping. It is a thrilling ride set under a great boreal canopy.
The trailhead has ample parking, an outhouse to use before, mid-, or post-trek, and maps of the available trails. A terrain park sits at the north end of the trailhead parking for those who like to play as much as pedal.
