Border Battle Boogie

May 16-17, 2020 (Sat/Sun)

Border Battle Boogie earned its name because it's the only MnDRA sactioned ride that resides in Wisconsin.  How does that happen?  The ride used to be located in Minnesota but was moved to Wisconsin and the "battle of the border" was born.  Spring weather can be unpredictable, but the trails can handle whatever is thrown at them. This barefoot friendly ride has a beautiful view of the trade river on the popular black trail.
