“Great southeastern Michigan trails. Perfect for beginners and fun for more advanced riders.”

Entry Fees: Resident: $16 annual recreation passport. Non-resident: $9/daily, $31/annual
A popular trail system for beginners, but entertaining for advanced riders as well. This system was reestablished through extensive work by the Motor City Mountain Bike Association (an IMBA chapter).
From the trailhead, riders can chose from two trails, each with their own character.
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.
