Mountain Biking Hartwick Pines

**   Add a review
#181 of 317 mountain bike trails in Michigan
#7,376 in the world

The trail is basically x-country ski dbl track having 3 loops all of which are very easy, even for the novice. The park has much to offer for hiking and info on Michigan's logging industry... The nice thing about this park is that its about 6 miles from Hanson Hills. If you are heading to the U.P. and want a break prior to heading there its a nice place to camp but don't expect anything to raise your heart rate. Enjoy it for what it is and head over to H.H. and then to the U.P.

    The trail has places that are quite different than I had anticipated. At the beginning of Aspen Trail, there are two fairly good-sized hills to go up (and down) then it is pretty flat for the remainder. On one of the loops "Weary Legs" is appropriately named. It's not the size of the climb or descent, but it is the large amounts of sand that you have to deal with that makes your legs weary. Singletrack and two track. Weekends are busy; rest of the week you will be lucky to see any other riders.

    Easy trail, a few small hills. I was not expecting much, however it was a little better than I thought. The trail is a two track except for access to the trail itself. Expect sand. Should be done in about 45 mins.
