Description

This trail opened in 2017 near Kalamazoo, Michigan. A full ~five mile loop is currently completed, with more features and fun to be added.

Built by Spectrum Trail Design and managed by Southwest Michigan Mountain Biking Association and Kalamazoo County Parks, the Maple Hill Trail features nearly five miles of mostly machine build singletrack. Riders can look forward to banked turns, tabletops, jumps, and rock features. Most features are designed to be rollable at slow speeds for beginner riders, but reward intermediate and advanced riders who hit them at higher speeds. There's a surprising amount of climbing and grade for West Michigan, but long descents are the reward.

The trail is well signed and alternates directions depending on the day of the week.

A changing station, drinking water, pavilion, bike parking, and restroom are available at the trailhead.
