    This is an awesome trail!! Great for beginners to seasoned riders. Fast and flowy. One of my top 3 in Michigan

    Rode segments #8-11, and loved it. Found it to be a really well designed flow track, with well designed segments of climbs and fun downhills. The scenery is hard to beat, with much of it following the lake / hardy dam, and then segments will dive into the woods for some climbs. There were some really well designed downhill parts with rock drops/jumps. My only personal downside is that with a trail this long, the trail is bi-directional, and there were many a close-call with riders whipping around tight corners and nearly smoking each other. Hard to fix on a long, non-looping trail. Otherwise, this has the potential to be one of the most awesome trails in MI, even in it's early stages right now.
