This is an excellent trail for beginners. I am excited to take my children on it ( 8 and 11). It is not one for adrenaline rushes but has beautiful views and the terrain changes frequently enough to keep things interesting. I am sure it is incredible during the color changes, especially where the trail is very narrow and covered in a forest canopy.
There is minimal climbing (for a mountain bike trail) and minimal obstacles but a lot of turns and trail width changes. I was expecting it to be a little sandy (from other reviews) but there were sections that screamed "I am a beach". (Then again I am new from Colorado and not used to sand on the trails)
While Fort Custer is more exciting, this is much closer when you just want a quick ride (if you live in Kalamazoo)
