Trail shared by Bradley Greenfield

Singletrack riding that is great for mountain bikes and fat bikes alike!

Family Friendly I have been passed by kids, but I'm 50 ;)

Overview

A very nice singletrack loop with some hill climbs that overlaps with sections of the Potawatomi Trail.

Need to Know

I felt safe riding this alone due to the amount of people riding the trail.

Description

This is a good route that can be ridden at a steady pace. The trails are one-way for bikes so please follow the directionality as to respect the fellow trail users.

The loop starts off as a really awesome black dirt singletrack with a couple of tree root jumps. This is a fast moving trail with a couple of really good hill climbs. One of hill climbs on the Crooked Lake section seems to go on forever.

About half way, you start to see some sand and this is the best feature where a fat bike really shines. The trails in this area can be really good for wider tires as I have seen guys with dirt all across their backs at the trailhead, where they came in too hot and wash out on a sandy corner.

The trails are constantly maintained but downed trees can sometimes be found along the route. Enjoy!

First time here. Did the Bottom half of the loop with the top half of the Silver Lake loop because I ran out of time and had to get back. 4mi
