Review: Very well taken care of trail system. Fast and flowy with some short climbing areas. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating is that it would be nice if they had some drop, jump or tech options. Plenty of places for it. Overall a solid trail. Well marked too!

Review: I'm surprised this trail isn't ranked higher on the Michigan list, but maybe I'm biased since this is my home track. There are some good climbs that challenge me, and fun downhills are the payoff. The length makes a great workout, and there are several short cuts and bail out options for flexibility. The direction alternates by day, which I love for the added variety... almost like another trail. The trail gets a good deal of traffic and is well maintained, but I usually only see a handful of riders over the full ride. There is a good campground (not sure about hookup, tent camping for me) which is popular in the summer, so plan accordingly.

Review: Good fun trail, very greasy when wet in spots, but nothing unmanageable. Beware down tree in blind corner shortly after "The Pines" sign.

Review: Like others have said, this trail is best when wet due to the sandy areas. It's a long singletrack through mostly dense woods. Decent flow in some places. Some really steep short climbs/descents full of tree roots in other places. You will need a season pass to ride here. There is a booth at the trailhead where they will charge you. ($11 if I remember correctly)

Review: Now riding reverse direction Tue, Thur, Sat. Reverse trail is more technical and some climbs are very steep. A step up in difficulty from the normal direction.

Review: A smooth well kept trail with some sandy sections. Overall a fun trail to ride. I had no troubles navigating and the trails were well marked. Note: if your looking for a restroom it's not at the parking lot but down the main trail about 50 meters.

Review: Rating a trail should never be about your own ride in a sense. This trail has a flow and challenge factor to it that forces you to make better descions. The sand isnt the problem really its you body position when traversing sandy areas. There are some very challenging sections and riden at a high level you can make it up most hills with speed but the should limit intermediate rider who are out of shape being tired and unprepared can get you hurt hear. Dont forget that. If your used to lets say pontiac lake this place in ways in more challenging because pontiac lake isnt sandy. But yankee makes up for it with well placed banks. Z
