Summary:
single track with a pretty good flow - a few tiring climbs & fun downhills -

Recommended Route:
did the large loop going clockwise - well marked -

Other recommended trails in the same area:
the 13 mile (linear) section of the North Country trail in the same vicinity was real good - nothing technical but fast.

Summary:
Biggest trail system I have been on. Not very technical but the trail system is well maintained and you could spend the whole day there. All the trails are well marked with numbers at crossroads. There are a couple of ups and downs that are really fun. Would like to see more opportunities to get some air though. The NCT systems goes right through the trail system, great way to camp and ride into the Big M.

Recommended Route:
Follow the signs
OH ME II is my favorite - good downhill sections

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Cannonsburg
NCT - easy but fast

Summary:
After picking up my new Ferrous at Trailhead Bike Shop in Ludington, this was my first stop on my way back to Canada. I didn't have a lot of time to explore the different trails. I liked what I saw. I didn't find anything really too advanced. I took a wrong turn somewhere and ended up on the outer loop which was fun, but it wasn't why I was there. It was up a hill, down a hill, nothing really too technical. For my first ride on the new bike it was fun and quick.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Boyne Mountain, Hiawatha Highlands - Sault Ste Marie Ont.

Summary:
The trail system here is vastly enlarged and improved. Trail surface is generally singletrack and fast. The use of the area hills on the loops is very well done as one never seems to have much flat cruising. NCT connector really makes for a huge trail network. I used to live here, rode extensively throughout MI, moved to CO, and still think this is an awesome place to ride. Put this one near the top of your MI ride list.

Recommended Route:
Lumberjack, Camp 24,Big Wheel, Oh Me!, Catamount, Bullwacker, Fire Tower and Barber Chair. Avoid Ryberg Rd.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
North Country Trail - Udell Hills, NCT Dilling Rd to Marilla!

Summary:
This is a great trail system. Anyone that says the trail is flat needs to move away frome the parking lot. The outer loop has some good down hills and some lung busting climbs. There are a couple climbs that should be called "anaerobic gulch" they'll test any of the best riders legs and then get steep. It's also nice to be able to take a twenty mile ride and never double back. Take a thursday ride at 5:30 those guys know the best trails to ride.

Recommended Route:
Outer Loop, and sections of north country

Other recommended trails in the same area:
North Country
