“A convenient, nice trail near the heart of the metro Grand Rapids area.”
— Bill Norman
Closed from dusk to dawn.
Family Friendly: Relatively easy trail, "ride-arounds" for most of the features...(log piles, etc.)
The singletrack trail branches off of the paved Plaster Creek Trail just a couple hundred yards west of the Ken-O-Sha school. Part of the trail is on the south side, part on the north side of the paved trail.
Currently (2016) there are signs showing where the trailhead is... look for wooden posts with white plastic arrows-a little west of the school. Most of the trail is generally ridden clockwise, however the longer section right next to the creek (with the wooden bridges) is usually counter-clockwise...there are also some two-way sections. Just watch out for other riders and hikers.
This is a great trail for people who live near this area of town, or for someone who wants to try out mountain biking for the first time! It's fun, but not difficult.
Did I mention that it has the only "MTB suspension bridge" in town??? Look for it on an optional side trail!
