    Nice trail, quite a few short punchy climbs with lots of switchbacks. Overall surface is sandy with good drainage. I rode after it had rained for two days and there were no puddles or muddy spots. Recent work on one section of the trail and the lines were not well established yet through that section. No rocks, and very few roots.

    Fun trail for a 57 yo novice. Well maintained, few roots, managable climbs. Had a great ride. Rode Bruno's trail a few days earlier, this trail was much more fun.

    Hands down the best trail system in the Munising- if not the best I've ridden! Excellent flow, fast, lots of turns, and jumps scattered in. Whomever laid this track out knows what they are doing. I will be back to ride it again. If you're in the area, even if your not, this place deserves a visit!

    Great trails with a lot of nice flowy sections, ups and downs. Green loop by the river was great. It was raining in the morning the day I went but fue to sandy soils trails were in pretty good shape. Definitely coming back for more.

    Great flow single track ,with no rock, minimal roots, or loose sand. Well marked. Currently portion of Trail closed due to logging operations. Beach , maple forest, with numerous beach trees dead due to disease. This trail , along with Bruno's run on Hwy13 make for a full day of fun flow, nontechnical trail

    Very fun trail. Well established and drains well. Some sandy parts. Flows well and offers some more technical parts on the last mile or 2. I took the 2 track back to the lodge as the trail ahead was closed for construction.

    Great trail! We rode the day after a big storm so it was probably a little slower than normal, but it was still a fun ride. No roots and a great design make the trail flow really well. The single track is still being worked on but it rides great in both directions. Definitely worth the trip!

    Fun ride. Lack of roots make a nice smooth track. Nicely banked corners. No monster climbs, but some short fairly steep climbs. A big storm had blown through the day before which put quite a few branches and one large tree across the trail. This trail would benefit from some better signage.

    Awesome single track . Don't waste time on main trails unless you feel like walking up major hills . Very good job whoever is making these trails ,berms ,jumps . No roots on trail makes good for fast riding . One of the better single tracks I have ever ridin . Could use some more obstacles but if you like to go fast perfect trail.

    Started on the loop 1. Trail. Don't waste your time. Head straight for the new single track they have just made. A great flowing trail with banks and burms. Very flowy. Great ride. Thanks to the guys who are building these trails.

    Longer uphills, fun descents, very appropriate for average riders. Minimal amounts of sand, sticks & debris. And no bears! A clean trail for the family. 75 degrees, slight breeze & no bugs.
