Average Rating:    (4 of 5)

Mostly tight and narrow trails ranging in all difficulties. Winding trails up and down. Quick hike out if you bust a chain. About 5 minutes from anywhere on the trail (if you know which way to go)

Summary:
Nice trail. Has mile markers and directional arrows. From start to about the 4 mile marker it is relatively flat with tons of switchbacks. Mile 4 to about 7 has nice ups and downs. Nothing very long, but it will get you working. Lots of sand and roots makes it challenging. Overall it is a great way to get in a 10 mile ride.

Recommended Route:
Start at trail head and do 10 mile loop. Make sure to bring $1 for in state or $3 for out of state fee to get in the park.

Bonneyville Mill Bristol IN.

Summary:
Lawless is a pretty fun ride. Fairly easy with no significant obstacles or steep grades. Excessively windy with many switchbacks. I enjoy the roots, keeps your attention. This would be a great trail for beginners or kids but can be challenging if you push the speed.

Recommended Route:
Lewis Lake Road off of M-60

Fort Custer, Battle Creek, MI

Summary:
Went out today for my third ride at TK Lawless, and had a blast. Some pretty bad storms came through two days ago, and we were worried that the trail might be affected - it wasn't, except for one tree that partially blocked the trail between miles 1 and 2. You had to dismount to get around it - might have been able to ride it, but there were some crank grabbing vines that got me...

The trail is fantastic. It has a great workout pace/cadence, in that it mixes up just the right amount of uphill, then some flats, then some potentially fast downhill (if you are brave!). It's been a little soggy here lately, so there are some muddy spots on the course. Most can't be avoided, so just take them as you can.

One of the downhills after mile 6 is pretty sandy. I flew over the handlebars when I took a bad line into the sand a couple of weeks back. Try to not do that. =)

Recommended Route:
There is only one way. If you get tired, there is an exit at mile 6 that takes you back to the parking area. There is some really fun technical stuff just past the exit (on the trail) that is worth the extra four miles.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
I've ridden the trails at Andrews, but never alone. The terrain is much more unforgiving there than at Lawless. I'd ride Lawless alone (and have ridden it alone).

Summary:
Just rode the trail today. Pretty fun, lots of winding singletrack. The end of Mile 3 & all of Mile 4 has some awesome downhills and ramps. Not very technical, most of it is an easy ride. The climbs aren't that bad, just make sure you fly down the downhills. Worth the forty five minute drive from South Bend, IN. Lots of bugs and wild life. Make sure to wear sunglasses and keep your mouth closed because of bugs. Look out for snakes, my friend almost hit one. haha.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Wiona Lake is my favorite trail. Its more technical and I love riding along by the creek there. If you haven't been here, you need to go. Also, Rum Village is pretty cool. It's my home trail, lots of stuff jam packed together. Worth the trip.
