State park pass is required for entry and can be purchased at the park. Mountain bikers are asked to use the entrance off of eight mile. Trail closes for the spring thaw.

Description

About 5.75 miles of forested trail in northwestern Wayne county. The short steep climbs will get your blood pumping, but easy enough for a beginner to conquer. There are natural rock and root obstacles and a couple of man made log obstacles that are easily avoided for beginners. This is a very popular trail due to its proximity to metro Detroit and is therefore very well maintained with downed trees being cleared within a day or two.

This track is more technical than flowing, with short straights, and numerous tight turns over roots, rocks, and small steps. The trail has numerous "first aid" exits that lead you back onto the paved trails that loop around the park. These exits are useful if you have bike trouble, if you get tired, or if you have kids that may not be ready to do the full 6 mile trail.
