Redhead Mountain Bike Park made its initial debut in 2020 with a soft opening of 15 miles of trails. This year, there are an additional 10 miles.

To mark the milestone, the Minnesota Discovery Center, City of Chisholm, Chisholm Chamber of Commerce, and Iron Range Off-Road Cyclists are hosting a day-long event at the trailhead, topped off with a concert by The Suburbs in the MDC outdoor amphitheater at 7 pm. Tickets are available online at etix.com or suemclean.com, charge by phone at 800.514.3849, or available for purchase at the MDC.
