About This Trail
added by rarude Granny Gear on April 19, 2007
 
This is a great trail for intermediate to advanced riders. Scenery is great and your $5 helps keep the place going. Recently found out that you can pay $60 for a year permit or help maintain trails on volunteer day and get free access. Go to MMBA for more info on this great trail.

Review: Nice trails. There is an easy loop an intermediate loop and a small expert loop that you get to off the intermediate loop. The trails are closed mid june and July for Scouting. $10 per visit or $60 for the season.

Review: Nice, rolling singletrack with plenty of short climbs. The downhills are decent and the scenery is great. Take a break halfway through and take a swim in one of the many lakes.
Many people rate Owasippe as intermediate to advanced, but my rookie wife had few problems. She did walk some hills.
The trails are closed for most of the summer as the area is a Boy Scout camp. My only other complaint is that some of the areas are a little too sandy. Those of us who grew up in West Michigan are used to that!

Review: This is an awesome trail, with some beautiful scenery. It can be a technical trail, beginners might have their wheels slip out from underneath themselves a few times. The new re-route is a little rough only because it's new and needs to be ridden more. They have a Facebook page under, "Owasippe Trail Users." You'll be able to find much more info there plus you can actually talk to the people that ride it frequently. Note: this trail is closed off during the summer months because this property is shared with the Boy Scouts of America, and they use the area for their summer camp.

Review: do not waste your time going here through the summer, drove 30 miles to bike here while on vacation, only to find out the scouts use the trails all summer and they are closed to the public

Review: This is a very scenic heavily wooded single track that passes several lakes. The trail is mostly single track with lots of ups and downs. This is not a technical ride but there are several ups and downs that you have to pay attention to. I rode the red trail which is a loop about ten miles long. The trail is well maintained with several re-routes around fallen trees. I traveled 7.7 miles north from US 31 on Russel road to get to the Owassippi scout camp. This was a nice ride - I will do it again.
