Mountain Biking Morton-Taylor Trail

***   Add a review
#60 of 322 mountain bike trails in Michigan
#2,366 in the world

Newer Trail, constructed by conservation group, with several singletrack bridges,
log ramps, rivers, bridges. This is an incredible oasis hidden in the middle of the
city. YOu'll feel 100 miles away, when you get caught up in the quick turns,
accelerations needed to ascend the quick hills. It's pretty flat, but plenty of tight
turns, and 10's of trails to mix it up. It would take 3-4 days to ride it all. There's
also a cool Carved Eagle and animal wooden carved bench for the much needed
rest about 1 mile west of the trailhead. Highly recommended for all skill levels
due to the groomed double track road when its' time for the much needed rest
from the singletrack trails.

Rider questions

Q: Map shows a trailhead off of Hines just before I-275. Is that actually part of this trail or just a way to get there if you're biking along the I-275 trail?
A: It's the current eastern end of the trail, and also an access point from the 275 trail, which is all concrete.
