    Good fun with maps and markers at each intersection. Some nice downhills. Limited technical features, but good forest riding.

    Good course. Lots of variations. Be careful with online maps the numbering of trail points seem to be quite different from current.

    This was some of the most fun I've had on a bicycle. It is multi-use pathway and appears to be originally set up for cross country skiing. There are some long straight climbs and some extremely fun exhilarating straight downhill sections. The topography and vegetation varies. This is a great place.

    Easy trail with some fun downhills and fairly lengthy downhills. At one point there is a down hill that lasts several minutes and I got up to around 30 MPH.

    A little longer climbs and downhills compared to what you usually find in Michigan. This course has good natural pauses if your pushing it and wonderful change of landscapes. Some sections are misleading as to what direction you should go (back side, points 14-18...ish) but not bad. If you find yourself on a logging road (which are fun themselves) backtrack, or head north or west and you'll get out. My wife loves this course, not so technical, just fun!

    I only got to ride half of the trail and it was definitely easy but still fun. The trail is marked OK but I found that certain areas were a bit under kept and overgrown which made things confusing. Its pretty remote when you get out there and cell coverage is spotty so you may want to take a buddy with you.

    nothing technical - lotsa singletrack with some climbs and okay downhills. good workout if you do all the trails. Map postings & blazes are good.
