Upper Glen, Levis Mounds, Wisconsin

This trail is a part of the Levis Mounds trail system.
It has personally been over a year since I have ridden this trail.  But from what I rode last year, and what I observed this year as I accessed Porky Point, much of the old Upper Glen Trail has been rerouted. Even my memory on the old trail is pretty foggy, as I never seemed to ride it very much

Upper Glen begins down off of Lower Glen and climbs over a knoll that's situated directly behind the building at the main trailhead.  Back in the day, there used to be a really technical rocky section right on top that was always very rewarding to clean. I don't know if that is still part of the trail at this time.

What I do know about the rerouted sections that I have seen is that the trail is classic, flowy Levis Mound singletrack. 

Over the years the geniuses behind Levis have progressed their trail building skills to an eerily perfect quality.  All of the new reroutes tend to not take a straight line to anywhere, but rather flow from point A to point B in a serpentine series of grin-inducing curves.

Upper Glen is no exception.

The rocky section is still there!

Thanks for the update Steve! That spot's classic!

BTW, "Glen" is Deans Nickname-my brother gave it to him when we went to Gunnison a long time ago.

Oh, I didn't know that! Gives a whole new meaning to those two trails.
