Upper Hermosa, Levis Mound, Wisconsin

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

Upper Hermosa is a gorgeous, one and a half mile singletrack that is best ridden starting at Buck Hill and heading back toward the parking lot.

But really, what can I write that a video with all of the highlights of the trail won't tell you? Check out this tour of Upper Hermosa that I edited together below:

Video to be continued tomorrow with Lower Hermosa.

Writing Anyways... But Just the Bottom Line
 Upper Hermosa is a gorgeous trail that travels through many different areas of Levis.  It rolls beneath sandstone cliffs, up ridges and down hills, through tall trees and young trees alike.  There are technical sections to be had, climbs to granny gear up, rooty descents to bounce down, switchbacks that allow you to get your swoop on, and even a few jumps at the end.  What's not to love? Upper Hermosa is a Winner!

Blog Update
Hey all, just a quick update on a couple of things brewing here on GregRidesTrails.  You may have noticed a new image under the sponsors tab on my right sidebar for something called "Endo." Here at GregRidesTrails I like to be on the cutting edge of things, and Endo is a new clothing company that is focused specifically on producing cool outdoors t-shirts, and yes, they have bicycle and MTB designs in their arsenal! Look for a blog post with more details in a few days for what this means for you as a reader of GregRidesTrails.  But for now, be sure to check out to see what they are offering, and to take advantage of their super low launch prices!  A $10 t-shirt? That's a steal!

Yeah, Upper Hermosa is a great section of trail!

So far, the tires are rocking! I'm still waiting on that bolt kit (was supposed to go out with the mail today... hoping they overnight it, or at least express it) so I haven't ridden since friday. I need to put some more miles on them to give a real verdict, but I'm pretty sure they'll be solid performers.
