Some Mud - I came to visit my brother and brought some bikes to see if he would like mt biking. West loop was awesome. Challenging enough for my intermediate at best ability yet not too challenging for his first ride. History

Getting forecast...

The West Loop is an intermediate ride with rolling hills, through wetlands and hardwoods.

Description

Ridden clockwise you enter by the "West Loop" sign at the southwest corner of the parking lot.

If you include the 0.75 mile Tech Loop and the 1-mile Lakeshore Loop, the West Loop is a total of 5.75 miles of great southeast Michigan singletrack. Rolling hills with flowy downhills make a fun ride. There are some minor erosion problem areas but all are completely rideable. Many roots and rocks to keep you interested.

You can shorten this ride by bypassing the Tech and Lakeshore loops by 1.75 miles.

Great trail system on the Northern edge of Oakland County. Should be noted the Tech Loop has bypass options around about 90% of the features. Tech Loop also only has one intermediate climb. Riding West, Tech, Lake and North loops combine for over 7 miles of single track fun. Aug 11, 2016
