Mountain Biking Holdridge Recreation Area

****   Add a review
#25 of 318 mountain bike trails in Michigan
#892 in the world

Part of the Holly Recreation Area, the trail system consists of three loops: 1) A .75 mile loop called Turtle Trail...great for the kids or a quick warm up. 2) The North Loop, a 2.25 mile section of flat trail, rolling through fields and hardwoods and 3) The West Loop, a 5 mile trail with rolling hills and water crossings.

The Holdridge Trail system also has a 15-mile advanced trail, Gruber's Grinder, in addition to the ones listed above. It is very technical, much like Highland State, and should be ridden by newcomers with caution.
Difficulty: Many of the trails are great for beginners and families. Gruber's Grinder is great for hard core riders.
