Summary:
I really enjoyed this trail. I found it to be of average technical difficulty and average aerobic difficulty (I ride about 3 to 4 times per week). For an occasional rider, it might be a challenging trail.

It is very well maintained, very well marked. Twisty. Rockie in parts. Expect to average 6 to 9 miles per hour. One of the funnest trails that I have ridden in Michigan.

Recommended Route:
Do all loops. It will take you 2 to 3 hours.

Summary:
This trail has a lot of variety as well as distance. It has a total of just over 16 miles of trails. A and B loops are the longest, especially B, but they have technical roots, rocks, short banks and so on. C and D are shorter with even more technical stuff. Lots of climbing with some very entertaining drops and shoots. For SE Michigan, its probably a top 3 trail.

Summary:
Highland; Tight. Technical.
Provides a great workout. (especially if your willing to do all 4 loops)
Ive heard that some world renown german mnt bkr racer dude designed the course. Not sure bout that. I am sure that if you get a chance, roll through this course!
Especially D trail. If you dont mind cheating, check out the trail head map n take the horse trail shortcut to the cross roads n hit the D. The switches r sweet followed by a big climb, ending with one of the best technical downhills in MI

Summary:
This is a great trail. It has 4 loops to it and the signs can easily direct you to each one. The uphills were long, but always had rewarding descents. There were rocks and roots that could be quite large. The trail gets very tight at some points. I felt like I had a good rhythm through out all the trails.

Recommended Route:
Do all 4 loops (A,B,C,D) for a little over 2 hour ride.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Pontiac Lake, Stony Creek

Summary:
This is the best trail in south east Michigan. Although there is no mountains it is a good and entertaining workout. There is plenty of steep short climbs and nice downhills. This trail is extremely curvy which makes it lots of fun. There are some roots and rocks as well but do not expect Colorado style riding. Nonetheless it is an excellent workout which will take you 2+ hours to complete all four loops. Over 16 miles long it is highly recommended.

Recommended Route:
All four loops.
