We LOVED LOVED LOVED our trip to the Sand Dunes! Great sandy trails, beautiful trees. Someone even told us a way to get to KJ's Refuge (local bar & grill) though the trails (although we had to ride along a highway for the final leg of the journey). It's so close to the cities. Our group has been to Zumbro, Tamarak, The Barrens, etc., etc., and this was our favorite place. While the trails are "easy" we felt more comfortable galloping through the woods. It's great if you have a wide variety of riding skills in your group. Those dang burrs, though, sure hurt! But we will be back anyway!
