This all-season outdoor recreational park is such an amazing gift to the area - from mountain bike trails in the summer to ski, snowshoe, and fat tire bike trails in the winter, it has everything you need to get outdoors. If you're a silent sport enthusiast, or just someone who loves to recreate outdoors, this is the place to be. The trails are great. The lodge is great. But most importantly, the community of outdoor enthusiasts is great. You will not be disappointed with a trip to WinMan. It is always time well spent.

One of the best trail systems I’ve been on, especially for the size. Very well made trails, super fun and flowy, and BEAUTIFUL! Very grateful for all the work that has been put into creating and maintaining these pristine trails and excited for the next phase coming. Thank you all out there who have brought this to the community.
