Features -none-

Family Friendly Difficult sections are easily avoided. Paved multi-use trails wind through the park. This trail is adjacent to a campground and provides access to Lincoln Lake.

Need to Know

This trail is easily linked up with Memorial Tree Park and the Ludington School Forest Trails to create the 10-mile Ludington Urban Singletrack route.

Description

This 3.5-mile trail can be ridden in either direction, with the best option being to ride one lap one direction and a second lap the other direction. The southernmost section of trail is the fastest with smooth, longer-radius turns. The westernmost section has tighter corners with small undulations.

As you reach the northwest corner, there is a very tight and twisty stretch that works its way up and down a small hillside. This section can be avoided by following the "easier route" signs. The northeastern area drops down into a grove of hemlock trees and winds around a small stream. As you reach the very northwest corner, there are views of Lincoln Lake.

The trail is best suited for the beginner to intermediate rider. Cartier Park also has a paved multi-use trail, campground, dog park, and access to Lincoln Lake.
