Trail Description
About this trail
The trail is fun for intermediate to advanced riders. Beginners can ride it as well but they will have to go slow. The trail has lots of variety with some smooth sections and gradual hills, and some very rocky/rooty sections and steep hills. You can ride the trail many times in a row due to the plentiful line choices. Beware of the sand though because there are many sandy sections which can cause crashes if you aren't ready.

Review: First time ever on this trail (or any trail like it). I was very impressed, great shape, tough ride for a beginner, but I enjoyed it. Some decent climbs and fun descents. Can't wait to go back! (Rode the main trail 4.14.18)

Review: Just went on a 50 degree day in January. Surprisingly good conditions; I'd say about 1/3 snow/icy slush, 1/3 wet dirt but not quite mud, and 1/3 dry. Super fun time and a great workout.

Review: This was a favorite when I lived in Grand Rapids. It was a bit of a drive, but a great place to get away for a while. Great views every now and then, and overall a fun trail.

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.
