Mountain Biking Der We Went

*****   Add a review
#250 of 285 mountain bike trails in Michigan
#12443 in the world

Der We Went is a hard intermediate trail used to bomb past a section of downhill on Ma Maki and Here We Go that leads to the top of Stairway to Heaven. That detour is well worth it for those who love rocks. Tons of small drops, large sections of exposed bedrock, a good amount of exposure, and twisty, narrow bridges all make this a technical rider's dream. All you have to do is commit!

    Wicked fun! Rides best from intersection 19 side. Don't ride when it's raining or really wet! Too hairy!
