Mountain Biking Cadillac Pathway

***   Add a review
#96 of 317 mountain bike trails in Michigan
#3,439 in the world

Mosty wide single track and double track with other singletracks branching off and returning to the main trail. There are a good number of small to medium climbs and decents with rubber mats protecting many of the hills.

    This trail is not technical at all. Mostly up and down with some roots here and there. The climbs wouldn't be bad if there weren't big patches of sand at the bottom of every descent killing your momentum. Overall, this is a good trail for a workout, but not much fun.

    Live there, rode every trail in mich, this is right at the bottom. Very dangerous because of rocks and junk in trail seen more people hurt here in one year than any where else during my whole life. During one race seen 4people hurt bad dnr is mostly at fault the jerks won't let you take dangerous rocks out of path. They should be sued for all the injuries. Don't ride this one

    A fun trail with some good climbs and fast downhills. If your looking for a technical ride, this is not it. Lots of sand and not very well marked. It's a pretty good trail for beginners.

    This trail is great for starters they are wide single tracks with lots of sand and hills some downhill but not much good xc trails the black diamonds are not really fast or technical I did not ride all the trails and only rode the west side of the trails you can ride these trails on almost any bike i have ridden a walmart bike on these trails and it did just fine if you are looking for local trails to ride these are perfect for that and if you want to go fast on the dh sections you can although there are no jumps you can pop off roots and off sides of some trees

    Some roots, some rocks, lots of sand. Good, quick 13-ish mile loop that's pretty well marked.

    Well groomed 3 foot wide out & back trail with some decent elevation changes. approx 12 miles. An easy, enjoyable winter ride. Checkout Cadillac Pathway facebook page for up to date trail conditions.

    Agree with some other reviewers that the sand definitely can be an issue; the overall lack of rain this summer hasn't helped. Some uphills can be a challenge. Downhills you do have to be ready for the loose sand that seems to always accumulate on trails throughout northern Michigan. Some interesting singletrack trails connected to the main pathway. Fun ride that families should be able to ride. Some uphills may need to be walked depending on age and skill-level of riders.

    Nice trail. In town to visit relatives and decided to ride here. Tough hills and fast downhills. Some pretty good root sections and a few sandy areas. Definitely fun!

    Not a very technical trail by any means but this is still a great ride. Some tough climbs with fast downhill sections as a reward. There are some nice single track off shoots to give riders a bit more of a challenge but still nothing overly difficult. A great trail for beginners

    Main loop is 10.5 miles long.Trails are pretty wide and crossings very well marked. There are a few places that you can cut off of the main trail is more of a twisty singletrack. The northern part of the trail isn't near as hilly as the southern half. It has a lot of hills that are pretty steep, some of them are short and sweet, but some are pretty long and can really take your breath away. If your not in the best shape you'll have to walk up some of them.

    Decent singletrack just outside of Cadillac. Pretty standard trail layout for a DNR pathway. Some sandy portions at bottoms of hills because of Michigan's soil. Pretty fast trail. Some decent flow and fun, rooty decents with a few good climbs. Well signed. A good 10 miles or so of multi use trail worth checking out if you're nearby.

    Pretty fun trail but not all that technical with some pretty fun and fast downhills. Watch out for sand pits at the bottom of some of the hills!
