Tight, tricky singletrack with some tough granny gear climbs and fun descents!

    I don't think Mackinab found the trails.
    The trails have been worked beautifully. Great bridges. The Summit and Lower Summit have a number of banked switchbacks and small gap jumps. Herb's is flat and fun. Python, Rock Dodger and the Maples trails are twisty and rocky.
    Once you get oriented, it all flows nicely.
    The trails have definitely been improved since I was last here a year ago. Was out there for nearly 2 hours and clocked about 15 miles. Did a few sections a few times and would have rode more, but the sun sets early these days. Looking forward to coming back.
    Avoid the wet portions of the ski/fitness trails.

    A very odd mishmash of some gravel walking paths, grass hiking trails and a gravel road. Not sure what qualifies as classic single track. Seems like a stretch to call it classic mountain biking.

    Nice single track in the north woods. Paper map in trail head box is better than big maps but new trail is being added. Never expected this at the Laurentian way side rest.
