Mountain Biking Orion Oaks

****   Add a review
#66 of 317 mountain bike trails in Michigan
#2,532 in the world

Truly a hidden gym. Five well marked bike loops, 33 sign posts, and 3 designated parking areas all inside 916 acres.

Diverse terrain includes marshland, forest, a large lake, a creek, open field, and a surprisingly large hill. Trails are composed of rock, roots, sand, and groomed trail.

Well maintained, well marked trails for the beginner/intermediate rider.

    Very easy trail system where you can rid side by side for 90% of it. Nothing technical, but some hill climbs on the northwest corner blue (dragon) trail. Great for building up stamina. Nice landscape! Great Date night!

    I started at the trailhead off Clarkston and took the Bluebird Loop to connect to Fossil Hill Loop, before reconnecting with Bluebird to finish the loop. Trails are decently maintained, but most of what I rode was 10 ft wide grass trail with some short inclines through some woods. This would be better suited for a family with young children than for even a beginner like myself.

    Mostly mowed grass with some climbs but without any real descents. This trail is basically a grass/dirt road that travels through open fields. Not even close to being a mountain bike trail. Thankfully, Addison Oaks is nearby.

    I'm surprised more riders don't know about this. Excellent well maintained and well marked trail system for the beginner/intermediate rider. It has something for everyone and a really good flow. The lookout hill towards the middle-back is one of the tallest points I've seen in SE Mich, and the entire ride is extremely scenic. Definitely check it out! Just don't spread the word too much. I love having this all to myself.

    Grassy hilly trails looks like they are mowed weekly, has some woodsy/ rocky hills nothing too crazy. Nice views of wooded streams and the back of lake sixteen you might catch some deer, an overall fun spot close to my home
