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: Very fun trail system with lots of amazing single track and great downhill for michigan from technical to jumpy and flowy. Awesome fun loose rock and roots if your looking for them.

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)!

Review: Its far away but there is NOTHING like Copper Harbor. The UP is so scenic and you really get the feel of it all in Copper Harbor. Great little town right on Lake Superior with some AWESOME trails. VERY well worth it!!!

Review: So fun. Was there mid-July 2015. Just had a quick two days to check it out when I could sneak away from the family and I can't wait to go back. Wasn't able to see it all. Town is small and quiet but has enough amenities, although cell phone connection would be nice for Strava and the random mishap. Also noticed it was pretty much bug free. Trails are really well marked. Crew out there does an awesome job. I'll be back.

Review: One of my top five places to ride!! Trails for every level rider. I make it there one or two times a year and never want to leave. The fact that it is not easy to get to is what is going to keep it from getting over run.
