Summary:
Pretty cool place. About 10 miles of fast, smooth, twisty, turny trail. They obviously tried to pack as much trail as they could in the place by making it twist and turn all over. It's almost all well built trail that will last. The tread is smooth and easy to ride, the challenge comes in the climbing and the occasional sandy section that will have your front wheel washing out if you're not careful. There are a few mild stunts like log overs but if I remeber right there are cheat lines around every one. There's a section with some freeride style drops and a short rollar coaster trail.

Recommended Route:
It's a one way trail. Exit the parking lot, go over the bridge, take a left at the base of the ski hill. Follow the tracks int othe woods where you will immediately start climbing and turning, you won't stop until you exit the woods about 10 miles later.

Summary:
This trail system was totally revamped in the summer of 2005-2006. Currently there is 5.5 miles of advanced but fun single track. Equally as fun up and down, but climbing always seems longer! Many off camber sections, a lot less sand than the previous course. There is also a skills park with wicked skinnies, drops, teater totters, etc. Best place to ride in Grand Rapids. A short (-2.0 miles) road ride connects you to the Cannonsburg State Game Area. The CSGA has 7 miles of fun flow trail. The Ski area drains well after a storm, the CSGA does not. Management has asked us not to ride up or across the ski slopes due to erosion potential.
The Ski Area is closed for a few weeks in the summer due to a Pops Concert Series and its also closed during ski season, otherwise go for it!

Recommended Route:
park at the east (left) end of the lodge. Ride across the bridge and turn east at the base of the slopes. Follow tiny white and black arrows to the trails.

Summary:
Not a fun place to run in my mind but great to condition. I love riding just to ride. I ride so much I happen to be a decent rider. So as far as fun its in the middle. The hills are great for a workout but I would love to see downhills to compliment the uphills that just didnt happen. Go up the Ski Slop at least once in order to really get the workout. I plan to ride this trail this weekend and do about 5 loops without stopping. I will take the slope at least 2 times.

Recommended Route:
Go up the ski slope too!!!!

Summary:
fun course, it is only "open" on race days but its easy to get in the summer, its a ski resort, in the summer its pretty dead around there. lots of climbing, the hill at the start is a leg burner at a race start, mmm lactic acid, riding to the the top of the ski hill is hard(need a quite strong set of legs), just a pretty fun course, id rather ride at yankee, but youve got to do long climbs somewhere. more of an intermediate to expert trail, begginers, try the state game area, youll have more fun

Recommended Route:
clock-wise

Other recommended trails in the same area:
yankee springs, robinettes, fort custer, cannsonsburg state game, bass river
