A nice, flowing trail through a forest on mostly hardpack with some sandy sections.

Craig Campbell

Overview

State hunting rules apply so be aware and dress appropriately.
Family Friendly: Maybe not for a first ride, but if a 10 or 12 y.o. enjoys riding, this is a good trail for them. Not too long and fun.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

This beautiful and fun trail winds through beech-maple forest with many small American chestnuts. The trail is a nice, sandy singletrack with good flow. It can be ridden in either direction so keep your eyes open.

This loop trail is a great, shorter option for those not feeling up to the longer and more challenging Dry Hill Loop. You could also ride this loop in both ways for a little variety or it can be combined with the EZ (~4 miles) that leaves from the same trailhead for a little longer but not too strenuous or technical ride.

The property is owned and maintained by the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy. This loop is well-marked and sign-posted so you can't get lost. If you ride it clockwise, there are few pretty treacherous sand pits in the last third of a mile or so. There are some very nice, banked turns over much of the trail, although there are several off-camber cutbacks that can take you by surprise.
