Race #4 of the MN Mountain Bike Series:

Detroit Mountain Recreation Area has been excited to be chosen to host the Minnesota Mountain Bike Series for a number of years- The race course will consist of a mix of old, new and the future of what mountain biking in the Midwest is becoming, mixing a variety of professionally built singletrack, along with leg burning switchback climbs that lead to flowy fast descents mixing in our gravity trails and teasers of our custom built wood features to provide
a unique race course to test all levels and abilities of riders.

Since 2014, Music on the Mountain has brought world-class entertainment to Detroit Lakes, MN.
Each year the event has grown both in size and talent, with sold out acts such as Big & Rich, Cole Swindell and Billy Currington.

On July 2nd, 2022 we welcome Jake Owen to Detroit Mountain.

Detroit Mountain is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization, with Music on the Mountain being our
largest annual fundraiser. Supporting capital improvements at Detroit Mountain Recreation Area such as the build and expansion of the Landslide Tubing Park, adding an additional snow-making well to increase winter snow output, as well as paving the road into Detroit Mountain Recreation Area.

Detroit Mountain and Crossfit Detroit Lakes have teamed up for an all new event for 2022

Mountain Mayhem is more than just a hill climb, it’s a challenge requiring you to dig deep, and go beyond your limits.

Athletes will have one hour to complete as many “laps” up and down Detroit Mountain as possible, climbing and descending the steep hill for the entire race. You must cross lap lines at both the top and bottom of the Mountain for each lap to count.

Get set for the region’s newest and most exciting outdoor event to happen in a long time: MountainFest!
