Review: These trails are rocky! Normal for the area, but we are not used to it, so the constant jarring got on our nerves. We ride hardtails so that had something to do with it. Great system of trails though. Get a map (for $5) and figure out your plan....then go do it. Garden Brook is fun,. Dancing Bear is beautiful...too many to comment on. If I come back I will bring a different bike (full suspension).

Review: Don't listen to that reviewer below me, there are plenty of modest singletracks to ride up Brockway Mtn or the Keewenaw Mtn lodge, and you can ride the road as well. I personally preferred singletracks going up though, they weren't too hard.... maybe he just sucked at climbing. Anyways, the downhill trails here are amazing. There are a bunch of different downhill trails with something for everyone. Everything from beginner to advanced jumps, rocks, roots, drops, etc. Also the new Phase 1 and Phase 2 trails are phenomenal, can't wait for Phase 3! If you're a serious mountain biker, you must rider here asap, cause you're in for a treat.

Review: This trail system shouldn't even be considered for Singletracks, first off the park is maintained by the same people who work at the shuttle(small community) that being said, the trails are designed so that you will pay for and use the shuttle. What I mean is there is no easy way to the 2nd half of the park. There are 2 high points at the park and both are drop off spots by the shuttle. The only feasible way to access them by going uphill is by going up a black diamond route that is 70% wooden bridges which sketches a lot of people out and it is pretty steep. If wet they are unusable. This route will take you up to the cabin at the first peak, but the second half of the park means taking another chain of trails and going up the another black diamond that has the crazy wooden bridge section that is posted in so many photos. that trail is pretty much exclusively downhill. There may be another trail to get around but it is quite a round about way to get there adding 2 miles to the route. To put it in a nutshell this is a downhill park with a shuttle servicing it. That being said for a downhill park, it is pretty fun and has some fun trails for intermediate riders and up. It is quite out of the way to get to this park and really has about a days worth riding in it, so if your looking to make a big excursion out of it, it might be a waste of your time. The area is super cool temps, when it was 90 degrees in Madison it was 65 and sunny(thanks to the lake), it is also very rainy and has a lot of mosquitos which is normal for anything around the big lakes. Also the town doesn't have a bike shop, the next one is 30 minutes out, so you can get some basic repairs done at the shuttle service shop but don't expect there to be a big supply or a place to fix serious repairs. Overall 3/5 it's NOT A SINGLETRACK but an excellent downhill course for the midwest.

Review: Best trail in michigan! Had a blast on every trail. Lots of technical climbs and descends. Definitely would recommend taking a lift from the local bike shop to the top of the mountain to ride the FLOW! It's about 3 miles of downhill with awesome flow and a nice jump section!

Review: Best place in the midwest to ride! Every trail is a blast. DIrt doesn't get too muddy when it's wet, doesn't close due to rain. Camping nearby makes it a good spot fora bike trip. So much gnar!

Review: Fantastic set of trails. I rode all except the ones labeled as "downhill." Great fun, and a different type of trail than you're used to in the Midwest, in that you climb for miles at a time before getting your downhill reward. Most in the midwest are rolling, but this is more similar to riding out west in the mountains, as you work hard for the payoff! I would be a much better hill climber if I were able to train here! Recommend for intermediate to advanced riders since there are many rocks & roots across all trails. Gardenbrook downhill is really fun, and the Red trail challenges. The (newer?) Point trail that runs along the south side of Lake Fanny Hooe was a nice change from constant climbing/descending and would be better for beginners. The trails were well marked, and I felt that riding there 3 days was the perfect amount of time to explore (though I could always ride more)!
