Summary:
This trail is one of the better thought out trails I've seen. I've ridden many loops all over Michigan including everything from Pontiac Lake, to Potowatomi, Fort Custer, and Boyne Mountain (plus too many others to list). I believe this trail was designed by someone who loves fast, well put together, swoopy singletrack. It's not difficult for anyone with even a year or less experience, but it is an absolute thrill to sweep around this track. The corners are well banked where they should be to help carry your speed and unlike the likes of some other trails, you rarely brake at the bottom of a nice downhill rhythym section only to be rewarded with an off camber turn into a sandy climb....fun right? Other than the fact that it's too short, you can't not ride this trail if you're in the area! Bottom line, just a fun trail.

Recommended Route:
I saw in another review that there wasn't any parking. They must've changed it. Now there is parking with a designated trailhead (1 way wider section that gets you to the single track). Lot will hold 30 cars or so.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Cannonsburg, Yankee Springs, Fort Custer

Summary:
The trail system is based on the stacked loop idea. Ride just one or combine many of the loops to form a larger ride. There are the following loops; Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Black and Red. Each loop is from 1 to 3 miles in length. All 6 loops combined equals 9 miles and each loop varies in terrain and difficulty. There is no parking on site. The closest parking is the D&W Shopping complex 1.25 miles to the west of the north trailhead off 10 Mile Road.

Recommended Route:
Enter at Ten Mile Road and you will be on the Green Loop. Make all right hand turns to ride every loop in the system. The 2 exceptions to the rule being a left turn option on the Blue Loop and a left hand turn to exit the inner Black Loop.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Cannonsburg State Game Area and Cannonsburg Ski Area. Combine all three for the trifecta, a 35 mile singletrack + road jaunt.
