Local Info

Exceptional, professional built singletrack. The cutting-edge, sustainable trail is open to mountain bikers, trail runners, hikers and cross-country skiers and has been made possible by a partnership between the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, the Potawatomi Mountain Biking Association and a $255,000 grant from the DTE Energy Foundation. The non-motorized, singletrack trail will be approximately 25 miles long and is slated for completion in 2020. It will consist of five distinctively different loops over varying terrain.

Known as "flow trail," the surface of the trail is mechanically cut to create highly structured grades and out slopes, which are low-maintenance and sustainable.
