Review: Really fast and flowy trail. Not very technical and one trail with some rocks and roots. Basically an XC riders paradise.

Review: What an awesome trail. Safe to say it's my new favorite for lower Michigan, has such a nice roll and flow to it and when you add speed you have so many chances for air. Great banks, berms, rollers and jumps and so many nice man made features keep this trail interesting around every corner. Definitely worth the 2-1/2 hour drive there!!!!

Review: Drove almost 3 hours to ride this. This is awesome. Worth it. Don't have any trails like this near me. Perfect amount of distance and climbing and I loved the jumps,berms,downhills and technical stuff. My cup of tea

Review: 10 minutes north of I-196/I-131 interchange. Several awesome flow routes going both directions with wonderful diversity and distinctive characters. When dusty it's easy to skid out and take some corners wide. Nothing better within 50 miles (Fort Custer SRA, maybe?) for an after-work lap or a speedy technical workout over a few laps.

p.s. Wynalda is not an advanced loop, Sawtooth is advanced. Beware that the downhill Siren trail alternates directions on different days.

Review: A super fun trail that has personality. If you head to Merrell on consecutive days, the trail direction changes. I'm definitely an intermediate casual rider who is working on technical skills and this trail has really helped me to learn skills in a hurry. Fast and flowing in spots, small rock sections, some man made obstructions and moderate climbs in others. Somewhat sandy as well.

If you're a winter fabulously fat rider, the trails are groomed for you riding pleasure.
