Mountain Biking Maybury

****   Add a review
#34 of 286 mountain bike trails in Michigan
#1347 in the world

Half of the trail is fast and moderately hilly. The other half is tight/winding single track. Bike trail is closed from December 15 through April 15 and signs claim the park closes at dusk. This 4 mile loop is a great place to practice your spinning, not to mention your technical skills on sudden, short climbs and winding singletrack.

    Love the trail. The first half mile is the most technical however the remaining trail flows quite well with different levels of features.

    This is a tight winding trail with a lot of switchbacks and short punchy climbs. I went during the summer and the undergrowth was filled in with leaves, leaving long sections of the trail to feel like riding in a narrow tunnel. Thick undergrowth Coupled with the switchbacks is a little disorienting to tell where you are but the trail markings are good. Some sections had less undergrowth and better sight distance. All said, if you are making a long drive there are some better trails in the area, but it is well maintained and pretty fun.

    A great, flowy, fun trail with some decent rock gardens, roots, great turns, and even a nice wooden jump that is perfect for working on form up to bigger and bigger drops/jumps. Nothing too crazy elevation wise here, there are some climbs but they are all pretty easy. The only things that bother me here are when there are hikers sitting on the trail around blind corners and downhills(seriously, there are separate hiking trails here, wtf), and the fact that this is a highly popular trail with tons of traffic means that you are guaranteed to get stuck behind packs of riders all summer long. I suggest going to Torn Shirt in the summer if you wanna rip on some tight rooty singletrack, you will almost rarely see another biker out there.

    A slightly more backcountry, technical sibling to nearby Novi Tree Farm.

    Enough climbing to make you feel it, nothing to really bust your lungs. Some seriously fun technical descents, and speed to be had for the adept at handling. Mostly tight woven, lots of banked corners. Fairly busy surface with plenty of roots and gravel, save for an extremely flowy pine forest section.

    Probably not advisable for a brand new rider, but the adventurous with a couple rides under them, or anyone who considers themselves intermediate shouldn't struggle too much here.

    Trail is fairly narrow with overgrowth, so the switchbacks can be difficult if it's your first time riding. Overall fun trail with moderate difficulty uphills and downhills. Some technical features that can be skipped. Reminds me of a longer and a little more difficult Hickory Glenn Trail.

    Good flow, couple of climbs right out the gate, roots, rock gardens, off camber and log piles to add some tech. I wouldn't take a super green person here for there first real MTB ride. But if your comfortable on a bike and have decent cardio then game on!

    Try to ride this trail once a week to get some miles in. Very close to wear I work. Lots of flow with a few tight spots. I usually ride this or Milford(much tighter, less flow).

    Not technical but very well signed and has good flow. You can really open it up and smash the trails without much worry. Fun and well maintained.

    Great intermediate trail. The first mile has a couple moderately tricky climbs with twists/roots, and the rest of the course has a bit more speed and flow. Some scattered log piles throughout the course. I have a blast whenever I ride here. Fairly similar to Novi Tree Farm in difficulty. Great place for a beginner to step up their skills, but fun for everyone no matter your level.

    This trail will definitely cause some fun. It makes good use of the downhills, winding down the side, sometimes around blind corners due to low brush on the sides making it interesting. Not too many climbs. The best part being the several more technical spots with roots and rocks, not too much to where a beginner couldn't handle it probably, but it definitely enough to make it interesting. There were two downed trees when I went, other than that the trail was perfectly cleared on the trail and on the sides. zero bugs as the time of year.

    all around amazing ride. I'm new to these trails and heritage park was my favorite before but this one steals the spot now.

    Awesome trail. Only rated 4 cause it was a little wet during the Rain and it also felt short. Definitely a little more tech than novi tree farm. Awesome trail tho. Great downhil section just before the road loop

    I'm really new to the sport, middle-age and about 50# overweight. As previously stated, the trail has a bit of everything. I rode with a couple of friends who are very experienced and know the trail well. I would have been overwhelmed without their advice and coaching. That being said, except for a couple of drop offs late in the trail there really wasn't anything that in could not handle. My biggest obstacle was my overall physical condition. I'm looking forward to putting in some miles this week for conditioning and then getting back out there next week.

    Great single track just outside Detroit metro. Has a little bit of everything. Climbs, a little flowy, scenic views, great markings, and always maintained.

    A good solid trail that is well worth riding. Not terribly technical or filled with climbing but there are a few really nice flow sections that make a smile come to your face. I live in the west side of the state and this is one of my favorites to visit on the east side.

    One of the quotes I always think of when riding a trail is that it doesn't get easier you Only get faster. This trail provides great flowing single-track that is great for a fun easy day out. Although with the layout and speed you can gain with the proper set of skills can be made to be a very challenging ride. The trail is always cleared quickly and dries out quick after rain.
