Trail Description
About this trail
A great free ride area you can go all day! giant logs, tight twisty riverside single track. there are tons of neat obstacles ie; picnic tables, pallets over 3' logs.If you run the trail from the yates parking lot stick to the river side as much as possible after about 1 1/2 miles of dirty nasty log filled, broken down tree rooted,(after a good rain it gets a little wet):) you'll come to a couple of fire roads stay straight eventually you will come to a clearing with a semi large steep hill to your left!!! as tempting as it is stay to the right and follow the the river trail again. you will eventually run out of single track there follow the trail to the left and it will open up to a fire road, follow that past the big hill and up and around the backside of the hill and you will then find one of the best, fastest(bring your knee and elbow pads) switchback sections in lower mich!!! tons of stairs, about 30 different ways to o down this hill system! after hurting your self very bad you get to head back the same way you came in!!!! have fun!!

Q: Ive been told there is a way to get to this trail off oc the clinton river trail near the split to the Rochester river walk cany any one be a little more spacific as to where this is???? -waldo

A: Yes it is maybe 1/2 mile East of the parking lot on Letica Drive in Rochester. Follow the Clinton River trail East and there will be a two-track that branches to the right. You can follow this to the lower portion of Bloomer Park's trails (two-track/fire road) and pick up the rest of the trail network from there.

Review: Have ridden this a few times, not very difficult but a good way for beginners to get into it and be challenged. There are two or three uphill areas, one on a jedi mind trick edge where you need to keep focus. Also a short back and forth winding downhill section that is fun and a bit challenging.

Review: Just started riding Bloomer again after years being away, first few times got lot or ended missing parts of the full loop. But after two or three ride now in can find my way around the trail. They have a nice skills loop, but can get muddy fast with a little rain. Doesn't have the climbs like Stony but I think it's a little more technical.

Review: Gets a 4 Star because it has no really good flow. It is more technical. Built as a switchback trail along the side of the hill, so you really just ride up and down the hill a few times. The Logs piles were poorly placed and some of the obstacles were available with awkward entrance and exits, lack of speed to really enjoy them. It is definitely an intermediate due to many of the downhill turns had root drops so you need to be focused. Enjoyable! Designed to really practice your control and skills. Agree that the markers are few and far between so you can get lost quickly.

Review: Good trails, but not well signed and gets confusing. Too many intersecting paths. Thankfullly I printed out a map and referenced it at least 10 times or I would have missed sections. If someone would mark the entire 6.4 mile track you're supposed to take, this could be a great trail.

Review: The trail has a nice bit of flow and I really enjoyed the lungbuster section. However, the trail marking could really be improved. There are sporadic signs but if someone is new to the park and doesn't enter from the trailhead it would be pretty easy to ride the wrong way for a while. Also, the trail crosses other single track at some point and it isn't marked which way to go. The only trail maps I saw were away from the trail at the trailhead and near the Clinton River Trail.
