Trail Description
About this trail
The trail loop is 5.7 miles. Look for yellow arrows (some at eye level and some higher) pointing you in the correct direction of the trail loop. Carsonite-type ground markers have also been installed at many â€"2-track” and blacktop path intersections to clarify the MTB trail direction. The trail makes its way around most of Hickory Glen Park and at about the 4 mile mark you'll find yourself back on the blacktop bike path heading towards the EAST end of the park. You'll cross over a very nice floating bridge and board walk, and just after you are over the board walk the trail picks back up on the left. After you finish this section of trail, you can pick up the MTB trail again on the EAST side of the blacktop path. After a quarter mile you’ll be dumped back on the blacktop path. Take it back over the floating bridge and pick up the MTB trail on your left again…and follow back to the trailhead.

Review: Love this trail system. Lots of unchartered options and you can start at Richardson Center then through Hickory Glen connect to proud lake trails and onto MILFORD and Kensington & beyond, all down along the Huron River.

Review: Pretty easy, no real climbs with a couple of decent tech features. Can be a bit over grown, I saw a lot of poison ivy tangling over the trail last time I was there. A good first trail for a someone new to singletrack.

Review: Really fun twisty single track with some tight trees and plenty of fun trail obstacles to play on. Well marked, well maintained trails, well worth the hour drive from Detroit.

Review: Great trail for a moderate ride. Some technical stuff that you can go around if you prefer and a lot of cornering.

Review: Good beginner course, nothing too intense. Lots of log piles and other features along the way to keep it interesting.

Review: Trail is MUCH BETTER now that it is clearly marked. I wasn't a fan of it until recently - once you get a few good laps in you find speed in places you never expected and it becomes pretty fun. Not a technical trail by any stretch, but the option is there to challenge yourself.

Not fast and flowy like the tree farm or island lake - but if you understand that going in this trail is a gem.

Review: Decent beginner trail. Wasn't as much speed/flow as I would have liked. No major climbs. Handful of fun objects scattered throughout the trail. Middle section of the trail got a little confusing as it was poorly marked. It's worth a ride, but I didn't find it as fun as most of the other local trails in SE Michigan.

Review: Very nice trail, especially for beginners. Only 1 significant climb, and the trail is overall flowy and not too technical. A few large log piles were added recently, and don't have bypasses. There's also a new skill section with different shinnies, banked turn, and a small wooden wall ride. Lots of opportunities to bail out on to the paved path.
