“The 2nd of 4 stacked loops in Highland State Rec. Longer climbs than the A loop, more rocks, roots.”
— Randy Kessler
Popular with hunters during deer season. Check Michigan DNR site for exact dates and wear orange when appropriate. A Michigan "Recreation Passport" is required to park at the trail-head
The B Loop is longest of the 4 stacked loops of the Highland Recreation A-B-C-D Loops
and has one cutoff should you need it. It is still a long way back to the trailhead, however. For both the A and B Loops, the outbound is longer than the inbound due to the number of switchbacks.
Your time is spent navigating rocks and roots on this narrow singletrack-lovers heaven. There is plenty of off-camber trail to keep you on your toes, too. Beginners should ride this trail with other experienced riders; it is a challenging ride. The basic A/B Loop defines the character of this trail.
From the trailhead on Livingston Road, ride the A Loop
(3.8 miles) & B Loop (9.7 miles) as the basic continuous trail.
