Mountain Biking Edwards Creek

****   Add a review
#25 of 303 mountain bike trails in Michigan
#894 in the world

7.35 miles of winding intermediate and expert singletrack trail including a good variety of terrain and a combination of natural and man-made technical features. Short, intense climbs, downhills with plenty of rocks, roots and log crossings and lots of off-camber trail to keep you on your toes. This trail is tight, technical and very challenging. Bring your technical skills and endurance.

    Really fun loops with some cool features. Thanks for all your hard work team Edwards Creek! I tried it once last year and did not like it, but I evidently came on the wrong day because now the trail runs in only 1 direction (aside from the 2-way 'loop') and it's not the direction I first tried it. Had a blast, thanks!😄

    It was a bit wet this morning and that made some of the obstacles a bit of a challenge.

    I was really surprised by this trail. Wasnt expecting much because its so far out of the way but ended up being a great ride.

    Very nice trail. Mostly hardpack and fairly well used. Some nice obstacles here and there, but you can go around them too. Tiny bit of elevation. Trail has you up and down and all over a couple ridges. Designers made excellent use of space, although it can be just slightly confusing where you are supposed to go in a couple spots. The trail runs back and forth next to itself and it would be fairly easy to jump from one leg to the other accidentally. When I was there a couple weeks ago it could have used some maintenance. Lots of branches in the trail and a couple good sized down trees. Regardless it's a fun ride and I recommend it.

    Trail has been rerouted in some areas...it may flow a little better now but it creates a part that now has two way traffic. IMO the trail is a little easier now with less climbing. Still fun though

    Construction. Work going on the northwest side near the creek. Watch for the pink marker flags, as it is easy to get turned around. 8/17/17

    I was really not impressed with this trail. Yes there were a few fun parts but I have to say I won't be coming back here anytime soon.

    Thanks to whoever is keeping the trail clear! Mid November and it was freshly blown off...very nice!

    A nice trail which supplements Merrell and Luton. All trails are easy to intermediate, with some interesting features and tight flow scattered throughout. Plenty of sharp curves, maneuvers and short climbs will keep your speed down and your legs moving. The trail is nicely broken-in, well-designed, and has good character. This isn't the same experience as Luton or Merrell, but really provides a wonderful track for practicing technical skills.

    There's a tree down mid way through Olive Garden/ purple. This is recent w/in the last few days. I stopped several times and cleared limbs off the trail but this needs chainsawed if anyone can get it. I did not ride the advanced loop, so not sure if there's anything else down there.

    This is one of my favorite trails. It has a lot of climbs, twisty turns, off camber corners, roots and rocks. Plenty of obstacles thrown in that can be bypassed. I've only ridden the beginner and intermediate loops as of this review. The beginner loop is super fast but in no way boring, and the intermediate loop has a lot of fun bridges and great obstacles that make it quite exciting. Trail is connected to Shearer by a paved path.

    My son and I had a fantastic time on this trail. It had obstacles that we both liked or you could go around them if you didn't. Some challenges but pretty easy overall. We can't wait to go back and do it again. The trail was in great shape and it wasn't too busy. Very much recommend to any level of rider.

    Awesome trail! There are lots of turns and quick uphill to get your heart rate up. As technical as Merrill with some different obstacles. Don't ride this trail if you are afraid of getting dirty!

    One of my favorite hidden courses to ride. Lots of technical turns and steep climbs. Very fun trail that has lots of obstacles to keep advances rider's blood pumping and ways around them to keep those less adventurous having a good time as well. Kudos to the team that upkeep this trail it has definetly improved since last year.

    I think this is my new favorite trail around here. It's definitely a hidden gem, but I like that it's so low profile. Its super technical, but in a fun, beat up kind of way, not a ritzy, well-kept kind of way like Merrell.

    Very underrated trail in serious need of some work. Intermediate turns and single track through the woods and a very technical expert loop with lots of roots, tight turns, and some challenging obstacles. Definetly worth the drive everytime.

    My son and I ride this trail as often as we can. I learned on courses like Egypt Valley and Yankee Springs and this trail is at the same level in my opinion. Good work to the crew who designed it and maintain it.
