Mountain Biking Midland City Forest

****   Add a review
#43 of 322 mountain bike trails in Michigan
#1,435 in the world

Trail has three loops (north loop, south loop, gnu loop). All the trails have a combination of hill climbs, short and quick down hills and jumps. trails are packed dirt and loose sand and tons of tree roots to keep you on your toes. All three loops have different challenges like an up and over , log ride, teeder todder, scout bridge and log jumps. All three trails are connected so you can ride them one at a time or all together.

Rider questions

Q: thinking about myself and my 14 year old son riding these trails both beginers, would these trails be ok for us
A: Short answer yes. I would start at the Gnu loop heading counter-clockwise, which is best accessed from the South parking lot. There is an elevated bridge (~2' above ground) in the first third of the loop, you'll see it in advance if you want to walk over it instead of riding. Lot's of places to bail out and trail is well marked.

Q: Does this trail have jumps in it
A: It has a few very small wooden-framed jumps along the paths.
