Mountain Biking Heritage Park

****   Add a review
#40 of 322 mountain bike trails in Michigan
#1,367 in the world

This is a good all around trail, lots of switchbacks, some good downhill, climbs, some off camber stuff, and a cool advance section. The trail is shared with runners and hikers in a few sections, but never get in the way. It is best to ride this trail with someone who is familiar with it, otherwise you could miss A LOT of the trail. But if you have patience and like to "explore" and have the time you'll find it a rewarding ride. (P.S. BRING BUG SPRAY!)

Getting there
The trail is located on M-52 just on the north side of Adrian in Herritage park, almost directly across for the cinema ( just slightly north. The entrance is right behind the gas station adjacent to the cinema. At the entrance to the park go straight you have to turn either left or right, go left follow the sign that says stubnitz nature center. Follow the road, it vears right, which is a one way. Once you reach the nature center, the south side of the parking has a info board that isn't very useful, because the maps are faded pretty bad. There are actually three separate loops. Follow the the wide cart path just to the right, you'll go a few hundred feet to a trail crossing, enter the trail on your right, there is an arrow. Stay on the trail, there are a lot of switchbacks, and you'll see the trail through the trees just a couple of feet away in places, don't get confused where the trail is, after a short ride you'll take a quick down hill to a clearing,(there is a cross country running path throughout the park) Now, at the exit of this part of the trail you'll want to go to the right, you'll come to a large feild, look to the left, you'll see a wide cart path like the first one, climb up this hill and abou two thirds the way up the trail picks back up on your left, this is a good place to lose your place a miss parts of the trail. Unfortunately the trail isn't well marked in some places, so my best advice is to follow the trail to the right whenever it's not clear which is the right direction. Once you reach the exit of this section, you'll come out to a good rest spot, it's about halfway through, ( i'm just saying if you NEED a rest) go straight follow this trail, Now when you come out of this section of the trail you'll come out with a "cattle gate" to your left, go left past the cattle gate on the black top road passed the soccer field on your left, to your right will be an R/C flying field, the entrance to the next section is to the right just past the flying field, of you make the sharp turn on the road to the left, you went to far. Now this is an advance riding section, not super technical, but pretty challenging. Once you come out of the trail you'll come out on the opposite side of the soccer field Follow the path across the parking lot to the main road and take that to down the road you drove on, on the one way part before the nature center look left and ther is an additional loop that is easier to navigate. This section crosses the other one way black top one way and eventually arrives at the stubnitz parking lot.
