Summary:
Pretty cool place. The red trail is the most fun, and the most challenging of the three. Good flow and the occasional techy feature to liven it up. The blue trail is just alright, very sandy in places, and the green trail is an easy novice cruise. None of these trails are very technically challenging but they are fun. The MMBA has done a good job of utilizing the terrain available to them to create some interesting and fun trails.

Recommended Route:
Red trail CCW, then blue CCW if you still feel like riding.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Cannonsburg, Luten Park

Summary:
I was visiting St. Joseph, MI and thought I would take a little drive to check this trail out. Well worth the drive.

Not a very technical set of trails but easy to get in a lot of miles quickly.

My favorite parts were Crazy Beaver and The Amusement Park.

This is a fairly flat area but I was never bored. The builders did a great job using the terrain to make it as fun as possible. There is a lot of sand which isn't a bad thing. Being from the south I am used to hard pack red clay. It was fun to ride on something different.

Without a doubt I will ride this again the next time I am in MI.

Ohyeah, watch out for the horse manure. It's everywhere.

Recommended Route:
Red

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Rum Village and Berrien Springs for more technical riding.

Summary:
Good trails not really a challenge for any rider who knows what they're doing. I'm hard core hard tail and none of the down hills are too steep infact I would say that they kinda slow.

Recommended Route:
heck Im 13 and don't know how to get their

Other recommended trails in the same area:
the deep lake circuit in yanky springs is great

Summary:
Me and my friends go there...all the trails are fun, red is more technical and is my favorite. green is fun to ride an a lil technical but not much, yellow for the families with kids. It is a fun place to go in the summer to camp or go biking,hiking,hunting,swimming,fishing,everything. By the way I live about 10 minutes from it.

Recommended Route:
Any of them, depends on the experience of the rider
