Summary:
i ride this trail every Thursday and i love it, but they have changed it and it is not as technical as it was. I'm only fourteen, and i put racer as the cyulist skill but im really good at freerider, and i race XC, but i think im more of an all mountain rider, but i rip up that trail. i ride with a bike shop called "sunrise bikes and boards." GO THERE! NOW! the staff is awesome and friendly, but anyways the trail has different routes and i like them all...

Recommended Route:
i would recommended the west loop, and then go to the tech loop, (which is my favorite part of the trail, with log climbs, and a drop, and then more log climbs.) then go to the lake loop, with is a slow uphill the whole way and that well come back to the west loop and your joy ride is done. I kinda like the east loop but its just hilly now, theirs not too many technical stuff in there, and id skip the meadow loop, cause it is over grown and it rips up your legs....

Other recommended trails in the same area:
highland, Pontiac, and stoney creek, big-m, and theirs a lot more that i can name

Summary:
Dirty Little Secret was an Illegal Bandit Trail constructed partially in wetlands. It has been dismantled and removed.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Currently Burchfield has the best set of freeride stunts. Or the Tech trails at Michigan Tech.

Summary:
This trail is sweet! this is for the Experienced rider Only. I also recommend full-suspension. Starts out downhill and swoops up the next ridge into a hairpin turn to the right. Heading back down your into your first jump and then heading up another ridge. As you roll over the top and start heading down again be prepared for the latter bridge drop. You pick up a ton of speed and head down around this bend to a series of dirt jumps and gaps. Funnel out through some rolling switchbacks and out onto the rode. turn left and up to the next trailhead and turn in. climb for a bit to a rewarding section of dirt jumpin' to a grand final drop. :)

Recommended Route:
Take Hess Lake Rd. down to Holdridge Lakes. Park and head head down the dirt road to the east loop.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Holdridge Lake, Burchfield, still searching!
