Overview

A trail system where advanced riders can hone their skills and newer riders can choose from some of the easier trail segments and mix that with some of the gravel and logging roads.

Description

This Featured Ride of the Mud Lake Trail begins just 100 feet from the north side of the large parking area. Take a left at the trail to ride in the recommended direction. You'll be riding on singletrack and then a short section of old logging road. After a few hundred feet the trail turns right and back into the woods. A sharp right hand turn will take you down a hill.

After another 1-1/2 miles you can choose between a ramp or bypass on the side and then a log bridge, where there is no choice to be made. Cross the gravel road and take the trail to the left to enter the Wart. The next gravel road takes you to the Pine Forest. When you exit the pine forest, take the gravel road to the left that leads back to the singletrack trail. Cross the paved road (Crystal Lake Road) to enter the East School Forest Loop. Follow the loop back to cross Crystal Lake Road again and another half mile gets you back to the start.

Riders looking for more moderate ride can start at the alternate parking area and use the trail to the right or the gravel road to access the easier Wartand Pine Forest sections or explore the extensive network of gravel roads and logging roads.
