Mountain Biking Bruno's Run

****   Add a review
#70 of 307 mountain bike trails in Michigan
#2,658 in the world

relatively easy to moderate trail with a handful of small hills . The section right after the trail head parking is packed with roots and rocks as it winds past the lake. After that is opens up nicely. Fall riding here is awesome but it is the U.P. so expect some cool temps.

Getting there
heading south out of Munising, MI to Wetmore then head south FH13 for about 11 miles. If you are going to camp there is plenty available all around. However, I like to stay at Pete's Lake Campground as the trail can be accessed right from the campground. Sights 7A and 8A are walk in rustic sites and they are right on the lake.

    Smooth trail...welcome change of pace on the way home from Copper Harbor. Got a little confused when we hit the campground but if you follow the blue diamonds you will be fine. Some great scenery on this trail

    Really beautiful woods, and a fun trail without too much technical stuff. A nice change of pace from some of the other, challenging trails in the UP.

    5* for this beautiful singletrack trail that takes you through some incredible Northern Michigan Wilderness crossing two rivers and passing twelve inland lakes. Slight but almost constant elevation change make the trail fun and flowy and the sand and roots make some of the longer climbs fun and challenging. Good mix of action and epic scenery here and a must ride if you are in the Pictured Rock National Lake shore area.

    Great trail in the middle of nowhere. My wife and I were in the area and were lucky to find this from the app. It says intermediate and I would agree, no killer climbs but a lot of flowing trails through very scenic forests, rivers and lakes. Be sure to be equipped for emergency because you are out there and need to be self sufficient. Despite other reviews I felt the trail was very well maintained and really enjoyed my ride.

    Really beautiful. Trail improvements are welcome -- much better, more sustainable lines. Nice work.

    Fun and beauty. Found this trail by chance but one of the most beautiful and interesting trails we have found. Lots of twists and turns. The forest and lakes are pristine. Trail had some steep but short climbs with quite a few exposed roots but still easy for intermediate bikers. I would not suggest for beginners. It is,closer to 11.5 miles not the 9 that is posted.

    Pretty fun trail network around Pete's Lake. The trails are showing their age and erosion is a problem in some areas.
    Worth a side trip if you're in the central UP and you've ridden everything in Marquette and Copper Harbor.

    This trail is fun and fast for the novice rider who might get frustrated with technical singletracks. The roots are terrible on many of the hills, but mainly affect the climbs. The scenery is the best the forest has to offer. I would highly recommend this trail.

    The best way to ride this trail is to camp at Pete's Lake campground (National Forest Campground) and ride right from campsite. Start just past the boat launch and enjoy about 10 miles of relatively easy riding after the first 1/4 mile as there are lots of roots to navigate. A few modest climbs and sandy at points near the end but still easy enough for the beginner. Follow the blue diamonds and you are all set. Only tricky spot is at the road w/guardrail. When you come out make left, cross road and opposite guardrail head down stairs so river is on your right and enjoy the rest of Bruno's Run
