Bill's Backyard is actually a large network of trails including Tuna's Revenge, Sidewinder, Bill's, Jakim's Jungle and numerous unamed trails. Rides from 1 to 5 hours can be strung together. By far the most technical riding in Manitoba with relatively long steep decents, big drops, lots of roots and rocks, large slick rock sections and touch technical climbs. There is also an assortment of "Shore" style stunts mixed in. Key to navigating the network is two 50 foot hand made (dont worry, ridable and solid) bridges accross a river that link the whole network together.
Head out to town of Ingolf on the north side of West Hawk. Park in town and start heading west. Out of respect for the builders you are on your own from here. Keep looking you'll find it.

QuestionHey guys, I've just moved home. Spent 10 years in MN for school and work. Great mountain bike trails there. Can anyone tell me a little bit about the mountain biking scene here? Dedicated/maintained trails?
Happy New Year everyone!

CommentPlease be aware that it is not possible to ride the loop from Ingolf around Lake Macara and back to Ingolf without trespassing on private property. There are sections East and West of Ingolf where you can not avoid either being on CPR property or someones cottage property as many of the lots extend up to the CPR right of way. You might also want to know that the CPR has handed out fines for trespassing on their property. Even the crossing at Ingolf is restricted to members of the Ingolf Campers Association who have an agreement and liability insurance through the CPR to allow them to use this crossing.
