Trail shared by Steve Schnell

This is a great mountain bike trail right near the heart of a great town, Boyne City.

Description

This trail has a little bit of everything for everyone. Beginners may encounter some steep pitches in places, rooty sections, and some downhill sections, but it's well worth it!

The best way to ride this trail is clockwise and just turn around and come back the way you came once you get to the top of the viewing platform overlooking the lake. This is a favorite for all levels of mountain bikers in northern lower Michigan.

There is a restroom at the trailhead, a great view from the top of the hill looking over Lake Charlevoix and downtown Boyne City, many great restaurants and a great bike shop nearby. Check them out at North Country Cycle Sport.

The trail is a multi-use trail shared with hikers and trail runners. Around the park there is also a well-maintained disc golf course. Come out and play!

Nice set of trails for beginner to intermediate. The advanced trail (Rumbler Ridge) is just a steeper ridge. 2nd half of Sidewinder is the most fun.

Going uphill can be tough for beginners and some intermediate bikers, the top has a great view looking over Lake Michigan, and the way down is fun.
