Overview

Addison Oaks is a scenic 1,140-acre park in northeast Oakland County with two lakes and spring-fed ponds containing fast, flowing, fun mountain bike trails. Located next to Bald Mountain Recreation Area.
Hours: 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset. Open year-round; closed Christmas Day.

Description

The bike trails are substantially updated and maintained by Pauly from Oakland County Parks and CRAMBA volunteers. This trail is a nice flowing one with lots of speed and some nice climbs to get your heart going. Because of its climbs it may be one of the fastest trail in southeast Michigan. It is also know for its bridges that cross many springs and lowland areas.

This trail drains really well after a hard rain and can be ridden right after a rain with no damage to the trail.

The trail is also home to the CRAMBA chapter benefit races in the fall. Also it has become part of a new Massive group ride (massivefallout.org) held every by fall by CRAMBA that covers all four of the trails in the Rochester area. (Addison Oaks, Bald Mountain Rec, Stony Creek, and Bloomer)

Addison is one of the best kept secrets in Southeast Michigan.

If you aren't from Oakland County it will cost you $12 for a parking pass. destinationoakland.com/park… Sep 4, 2016
Great beginner trail, 1st half is a bit more flat & technical with the occasional rock garden, 2nd half has much more elevation and a some tough climbs, at the very end of the trail there is an awesome downhill where you can really get some speed. Apr 18, 2017

Really fun trail and super well kept. Was told by another rider that a guy does maintenance on it every week. Plenty of cool sections with awesome scenery. Im a new MTB rider and its perfect for me because its not too long but still challenging and fast. Not cheap to get in tho. I think its 5 bucks if you lie and say you're a resident of oakland county lol and its 12 bucks just for a day pass if you're a non-resident. Jul 8, 2018
