Description

Cannonsburg Ski Area is on private property but the owners have allowed mountain bike trails to be built and accessed year round. Pretty awesome huh? The trails are some of the most challenging around as they tend to have a lot of climbing compared to the other trails near here and it has many rough technical sections. The Ski Area also has a Skills Park Area with many black diamond drops, step up's, gap jumps and doubles. A bonus is that this trail dries super fast after rain due to the high sand content. Heck it is even good to ride while it is raining.

For a great ride, connect to the Cannonsburg State Game Area and an additional 8 miles of trail via Egypt Valley road south to 5 Mile Rd east.

Beautiful evening ride. Gotta get used to the West Michigan sand-traps, but fun
