Overview

McCune Nature Preserve is the perfect place for a family ride!

Description

This ride utilizes a mix of two track and singletrack multi-use trail at the Little Traverse Conservancy's McCune Nature Preserve. Minnehaha Creek passes through the property, making for a lush and scenic setting. It is best to start from the Berger Rd parking lot, although there is also parking located on the east side off of Maxwell Road. The trail is groomed for winter use as well. The mostly non-technical trails and minimal climbing make this area great for new mountain bikers as well as for winter fat biking.
