Overview

Another great rustic section of the North Country Trail. This trail has been a hiking trail for many years. Mountain biking is allowed on this trail and the local IMBA Chapter, TOMMBA, helps maintain various sections in this region. It is mostly singletrack and a variety of beginner sections mixed in with some steep climbs and small technical sections on those climbs. Mostly a friendly singletrack with mix of intermediate challenges.

Description

A fun, rustic biking trail with lots of great winding singletrack in densely wooded terrain. This is mostly singletrack but there are sections of two-track and is part of a multi-state hiking trail. This section allows mountain bicycling and it's a terrific section. It features great terrain, a couple of small bridges, and some steep climbs.

Make sure to keep riding north to check out sections north of Chandler Hill Road. You can ride on this trail for many miles north, with various road sections but it connects all the way to the Mackinac Bridge.
