This area is a study in contrasts. Sustained 1-mile ascents and descents combine with flat, mellow doubletrack that circumnavigates two pristine inland lakes. This popular recreation area, however, is not without controversy. Some locals want the Fumee Lakes, once the water sources for nearby Norway, completely closed to people; others desire more recreation-oriented development. During the summer of 2000, a twisting 2-mile singletrack was finished, giving riders on the South Ridge Trail an alternate route. More singletrack near the bottom of the Fumee Mountain Trail is also in development. The well-marked trail has few technical difficulties, but watch for rocks and rutted areas when flying down the hills. Tread: 9 miles of doubletrack.
