Not an overly technical trail, but a definate workout and one that tests your climbing and downhill prowess. Starts out fairly flat with some twists & minor elevation changes for about the first mile or so, then the climb begins. Nice mix of good moderate climbs will get your heartrate up with some short flat sections and a few downhills mixed in. Nothing technical except for a few roots until you get to the top of the hill, then there are one or two short technical challenges. Stop at the top of the hill for the awesome view before tackling the long downhill that is probably the last half mile of the ride. Nothing overly steep, but you will be on the brakes regularly to keep from crashing out on the turns & twists.

Review: I only got about 10 minutes in before my derailluer hanger broke. However in the mean time this is a loop. About 6 miles with an outstanding view of Lake Charlevoix (as I have been told). I found the trail to have a lot of twists that keeps you on your toes and the brakes covered. I did not get to the hard climbs, however I am sure there are there. This trail does not flow as nice as say the Shingle Mill Pathway, however it was exciting to run. The mountain trail overlaps the hiking trail and a two track. And the trail is not marked well. If you think the trail is to wide, it is and you have go back. There is a short loop that doubles back and you can easily make a right and cut it off. Like I said it is not marked well. to where I got there was good hardpack, with a few spots of sand that was easy to cross. There are roots as well. When i get a chance again I will rewrite the review to include my thoughts on the rest of it.
