The Skills/Terrain Park at Lebanon Hills new West Trailhead in Eagan was constructed by mountain bike trail building legend Tim Wegner, owner of Trail Source and opened in August 2012. It provides an opportunity for mountain bikers of all experience levels to practice and improve their skills before encountering those features on the large network of trails within the park.
The Skills/Terrain Park features varying levels of skinnies, rollers & jumps, berms and rock sections to practice on improving your technical aptitude. Each segment of the Skills Park as well as all of the mountain bike trails are marked using the IMBA Trail Difficulty Ratings System to inform riders of technical difficulty.
