“Located in the historic Owasippe Scout Reservation, the oldest Boy Scout Camp in America.”— Randy Knapp
Owasippe offers biking/hiking trails that meander through oak savannahs, towering hills, lake shores, and reforested lands. With a little patience and an alert eye, trail users may see any one of the 19 rare or endangered species that call Owasippe home. With approximately 27 miles of trails open to mountain biking spread across nearly 5000 acres, traffic congestion on the trails is seldom an issue. Rain is soaked up quickly by the lighter sandy soils of the region. Trails are generally rideable after even heavy rainstorms when other trail systems close due to muddy, slippery conditions.
Take advantage of the $10 parking and load the car up with people. This is a very fun trail with lots of new singletrack. The Michigans Edge Mountain Bike Association (MEMBA) has done a great job building and maintaining the trails here. It is surely worth the drive. Lots of hills, both up and down and beautiful scenery along the trail.
