one of the best trails in the state
Jackpot/High Climber mountain bike trails connecting Britton Peak trails to Lutsen Mountains. This sixteen-mile wilderness trail through the Sawtooth Mountains offers big climbs with rewarding fast and flowy descents, jumps, rollers, massive berms, incredible rock features, and scenic vistas all located in the maple forest of the North Shore.
To access Jackpot, leave the parking lot on Shortstacker, climbing gently for the first half mile, before turning onto Cross Cut to where it intersects with Jackpot. Jackpot connects to High Climber o the Onion River Road and ultimately leads to Lutsen Mountains. When leaving Jackpot and returning to the parking lot, the last 3/4 mile of Cross Cut is a ripping fast, one way, blast to the trailhead.
