    Just ride this trail today. It could be a really fun trail but I felt that it needs to be marked much better. Easy to get lost on. Also, in many areas the grass and weeds are way too high and the trail becomes difficult to see. Lastly, this trail could use some features to make it more fun and interesting. Other than one log roller at the start there isn't really anything else, just mostly switchbacks. A lot of potential though as the park grounds are really nice.

    The reviews do it justice, but one thing I've noticed traveling around Michigan is you have to pay for parking at some of the parks. That is true at this trail too. Still worth it. Some other states I've ridden parking is free.

    It is fun and flowy and includes some "thread the trees". Thanks to the trail builders, you did well and I had fun.

    This is a nice beginner trail. The distance is closer to 4.5-5 miles. It's an easy one though. Not much climbing, not many steep downhills. There were some obstacles, but nothing too big. I combined this trail with Hewen's Creek, they are about a mile apart. It does lack some proper signage though. I'd volunteer some services and wood to make the signs, if someone got in contact with me or I knew who to contact.

    This is a great place to learn the fundamentals of trail riding. The crew who designed this trail did a nice job of utilizing twisting and turning to really force a new rider to get off the saddle and lean into the turn. Newer trails were added and the space is fun to rocket through. If you want a quick ride and only have a limited amount of time, this is a great trail.

    The only gripe is that the trailhead is not marked well at all. When you park, the crosswalk somewhat points into the right direction but if you didn't know it was there, you wouldn't immediately see it.

    Anyone who is in the beginning of trail riding will benefit from this trail. Anyone who is interested in working on improving their speed through turns and getting used to letting the bike move under you will benefit. Well done and I'll be back to enjoy it again.

    This is a great trail! The distance is close to 5 miles. It has some narrow spots that will slow you down.

    Wasn't sure what to expect, but I was delighted with this trail. The park in unique for Lower Michigan Riding in that it has these randomly-placed, steep little hills randomly placed throughout the park by glacial movements. The trail makes good use of these, winding through, over, and around them; makes for awesome switchbacks!

    Can be combined with Hewen's Creek for a longer ride (also has free parking over there), but that trail is not so dry as of right now nor as fun in my opinion.

    Glad I went today! Beautiful park.

    A great mix of climbs, logs and downhills. You can find a bit of speed on the downs. The only complaints I have is some of the trails through the grass are a bit over grown and the trails are not marked very well. Overall it's a good challenge for the intermediate to advanced ride though accommodates the newer rider.
