Trail Description
About this trail
"Hills, gravel, rocks and ruts - heaven to mountain bikers - can be conquered on the mountain bike trails at Stony Creek Metropark. Nearly 14 miles of dirt paths with tight curves and steep hills take you through deep woods and tall pine trees, and along clear streams of the west branch of Stony Creek and hidden ponds. Wildlife, including deer and wild turkeys can be seen along the trails. Open to hikers and cyclists, the trails are used for many competitive events." -- HCMA

Also a new pump track and free riding area to open in the spring of 2008.

Review: Not a ton of technical stuff, some short uphills and some nice twisty downhill scattered throughout. I must get lost easily because I seem to miss the trail markings on the few times I've been out there.

Review: A fun ride with a variety of different trails. As other people said, it can be a little confusing to find your way around, but they do have signs up at different points to help guide the way. You can use the following map to help out: http://it.metroparks.com/webdev/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/MTN-Bike-Map-SC.pdf I park in the NorthEast corner, and start at point 1 (duh), then progress down to 27 since I like riding the singletrack right away. There's only about 5 miles of true mountain bike singletrack, so I usually loop it twice. Bring the map loaded on a smartphone, and you'll be just fine. Don't miss the section of singletrack in the southeast corner, as it has some great rock gullies, log piles, bridges, and other fun features. The trail is similar to, but slightly easier than Pontiac Trail and Novi Tree Farms. Fun trail, beginner/intermediate overall.

Review: A lot of trail types here, so if you only want the singletrack, you need to know where to go. Oddly, what seems to be the "start" is in the opposite corner from the parking lots within the park. However, you can enter the park property off Sheldon Road near marker 5, and this map shows a ~5 mile route to catch most of the good singletrack... http://www.cramba.org/storage/maps/stonycreek/CRAMBA_Stony_Creek_29-Jun-2012_Wednesday_Night_Group_Ride.pdf

Review: It would have been great, if I knew where I was going! The trail is terribly marked. Prepare to get lost if you don't know the grounds

Review: Moderate climbs, but nothing gut wrenching (unless you are an absolute beginner). The Roller Coaster is a must ride.

Finding your way can be a little tough so I made a color coded number marker (I uploaded it as an image above). All the trail heads have a ## designation and the map I've outlined is a popular group ride that covers some of the landmarks. Tape it to your bars and turn at the number indicated.
