“Great southeastern Michigan trails. Perfect for beginners and fun for more advanced riders.”— Loren Konkus
The Blue Loop, approximately 9 miles in length, is fast and flowing, with gentle climbs and descents. Beginner friendly, the flow really appears at speed and experienced riders will find Blue a great place to spin all out and work on their cardio as the miles fly by.
The Yellow Loop, approximately 6 miles in length, is a more technical and hilly intermediate trail with scenic stretches along the Huron River and great vistas. The end of the Blue Trail shares a small section of two track with Yellow, and so it's easy to link both Blue and Yellow into a 14+ mile loop.
Both trails cross park roads; please exercise caution at these crossings.
