Anything from easy wide beginner trails to tight twisty singletrack. I recommend the orange or red trails for some sweet downhills and some leg burning climbs. real nice views during fall.

Summary:
Been riding here since '98, first time to see any real changes. Trails have been rerouted, remapped, remarked and needed improvements. Blue Lake is closed to bikes. New route with great views of Wolverine Lake, stop and look, tight at water edges. Trails are firm with sand at bottom long down hill runs, like most trails.
Good mix of woods, meadow, long climbs, tight trees and turns, jump off and push, HIGH role aways, keep your eyes on the trail and passing space. Some washouts still need some work, but one of best rides in west Michigan. Trail is closed for deer hunting.
Price is $10 per car load,like most state parks or $60/ year, we carpool.

Recommended Route:
Red is 10 miles, Blue is 15+ and has bigger hills.

Summary:
I am leaving a 3 based on few things.
1.) The fee is outragous 6 bucks. Come on.
2.) For a fee that large there is no markings in the most crucial spots. The Y Turns and other areas. Sure there are markings. But when it comes up to a turn there are no markings.
3.) Most of the maps are hardly readible from weather and then they are torn down. So its a decent trail. I would like to leave a 3.5 but cant so I am not going to give it the benefit because of the price. Anything with the 6.00 fee should be perfectly marked. So about the trail. There are some sandy spots throught the trail. Nothing to major. I didnt find the Hills near complex as some people. Sure there steep but there either steep and short or shallow and long. So in my words I love hills and they proved to be pretty wimpy. Dont get me wrong I liked this trail. I wont ride it again unless I have some people with me or a group. It got my heart rate up but not much more. So drop the price a little. Mark the turn-offs and provide maps for the paying people and this trail would be worth a 4.5

Recommended Route:
Blue Route. Started on Red

Summary:
Please this is a Scouters paradise, the small fee that is paid is for upkeep of the trails. As for Cabby I hope I never run into you on the trail as they are also hiking for those of us that are Scouts.

Summary:
Please tell me better directions to this trail so that I can go there and ride for free. Only idiots with the "fear of god" would feel a need to pay to ride.

Recommended Route:
Backwards and try to lock your brakes as much as possible.
