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. The Rim, The Zen, and Tough Mama now raise the total mileage to 25. This marks the completion of the phase 1 build out of Redhead. 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.

The official ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 10:00am on Saturday, June 26 at the main trailhead at MDC. Immediately following the ribbon cutting, there will be a press conference in Taconite Square. Following the press conference, press will be invited inside the MDC movie theater to watch the unreleased short documentary RECLAIMED. MDC and Redhead MTB Park tours will take place after the documentary screening.
