Did a couple laps at Hanson today!! Trail conditions are GREAT. I even jumped onto the new loop that's going in, and got an extra 6 miles out of that :D The new single track will be SWEET once it's all connected 8)

I was told last night the new loop will be 100% by next weekend, now the loop sits at 80%

New extension

Postby prichards » August 25th, 2008, 12:56 pm

I rode the start of the new loop Saturday. Very nice. Once I got to the two track I was not sure where to go from there. Can anybody give me some direction?

Rode it Tuesday. First time up there. Some snow in a couple spots and a bit of leaf coverage still, but it was really dry otherwise. ISome sticks and branches still on the trail but only one hike a bike log and the guy at the office said he had been clearing stuff earlier in the day, so it may be even better now. t's a really fun, flowing trail. Not super technical but you can get flying in some spots. It's also really well marked.

Rose it Saturday. This was my first ride on the Outer Loop. That was fun. Some nice climbing in there. other than lots of leaves on the trail it's good to go.

Hey all you single track lovers!! Hanson Hills is open and the trails are in great shape. We had some windfall debris last week, but thanks to a great bunch of local trail crew volunteers the trails are for the most part clear. There are a great deal of leaves covering the trails.. "New Outer" loop, still needs a little TLC, but is totally rideable and enjoyable. I will be posting as often as I can on the MMBA Forum, but will more often be posting trail condions and events on www.hansonhills.org. GET OUT and RIDE...

Northern: VASA & Hanson Hills

Postby Darkside » May 11th, 2009, 11:12 am

Just curious why the VASA and Hanson Hills trail conditions are listed as "Avoid". The VASA is bone dry, not a single muddy area as of Friday. Hanson had an area maybe 3 feet long of firm mud - but it was on the two tracks at the beginnning. Other than that the trail was good as of Sunday.

Rode here for the first time on Thurs and Fri, lots of fun. The "old" outer loop was great, nothing down, very little sand and that last half mile or so behind and around the ski hill has got to be one of the most fun in the state. Went back on Friday and rode the "new" outer loop, still a little soft (compared to the other trails) from lack of use and plenty of small sticks over it but it has some very fun parts, really like the valley where you go up and down the sides two or three times. I also like the view you get near the road in the last mile.
