The Loppet Foundation maintains 4.5 miles of multi-use event trails in Theodore Wirth Park. These trails wind around the area “behind” the main Chalet and near the Par-3 building. Great for mountain biking, trail running or hiking, these trails are only open when dry. The Minneapolis Off-Road Cycling Advocates (MOCA) maintain an additional 7 miles of trails in the park. Check this page for more information on those trails
