Select Cut, Levis Mounds, Wisconsin

This trail is a part of the Levis Mounds trail system.     

One of the flat trails that circles the front mound, Select Cut shares a lot of similarities with Warm Up (which it naturally flows right into) and Dead Turkey.

Flowing through the tall deciduous forest, the singletrack constantly twists and turns along its way. Select Cut is very flat, and doesn't even really contain any sort of rises or dips, and is mostly non-technical.  Those characteristics apply for Select Cut, the trails listed above, and most all of the trails around the base of the Front Mound, which is why I've recommended them as the beginner's type ride.

As with all of the other flatland trails, its relative ease does not necessarily make it a bore to ride. Select Cut is another fine example of Levis Mound flow, and just begs to be hammered as you ramp up through your cogs while in your middle ring!

Besides the flowing turns, the only other remarkable feature on Select Cut is a long bridge spanning a marshy area.  I captured it on video:

Bottom Line: Just another great Levis Mound trail!
