Overview

A loop along a technical trail that will test your bike handling skills.

Description

This route covers some of the most technical riding in Central Michigan. The trail starts out in a low lying area and crosses narrow bridges over swampy areas to work its way up to the top where things become more flowy. There are some extremely technical sections that are root-strewn and off-camber. There is also a log ride over the swamp to look out for.

A ladder bridge carries you over a swamp – don't fall off!

Lots of roots, tight trees and turns. Poorly maintained features and bridges.

fun, lots of tech roots and tree hops. easy to get lost in spots with the fall leaves everywhere. Not a lot of opportunity to keep momentum, tight… 5.7mi
