Mount Kato Ski Area is a 4.5 mile loop trail located near Mankato, MN and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for mountain biking and is accessible from June until October.
When you arrive you have to pay a fee to ride the trails, but it's worth it. This trail is very technical. It has the perfect mix of technical and climbing areas. It would be a great track for a rider who has experience riding in technical difficult trails.
Great wooded trails along a viewable hill just south of Mankato, Minnesota. I rode the trails there, as well as the nearby Red Jacket Trail, quite often when I lived in Minnesota. The trails are accessible through the ski area, and you will need a permit from their ticket office to ride the trails. Definitely a great place to ride. Some weekends will be crowded, due to the local college students from Mankato State University.
