There are 3 loops. The red is the longest. The trail is mainly rolling meadows with some singletrak. The singletrak is relatively easy. A couple fun steep hills, but this is a very easy place to ride. The red loop is in the 13 mile vicinity. Great place to take a new/non rider to get them the feel of singletrak. For stronger riders a good alternative to a road ride. It's flat and easily fast enough to keep a good pace up. Lots of matted grass riding. Somewhat scenic. For stronger riders who live in the lansing area it's only about 25 minutes to get there, but I'd honestly drive the extra 20 or so to Poto or the other trails. But it's a decent quick ride.

Summary:
These trails make for some decent single track in the Lansing area. It was my first attempt at mountain biking in a couple of years (sorry I heard the call of the road) and it was a great workout. The trails are very well marked and didn't see anybody else (other than deer and rabbits ) the whole time I was on the trail. Decent mix of hills, roots, and other obstacles to keep your attention. Definitely not the powo though...

Recommended Route:
Park at the first beach parking area and start riding out to the hiking trail.

Summary:
This is a great place to camp and ride. I stayed in the campground and rode for 4 days. They have done a good job of grooming the trails and putting up new signs. It is a pretty easy course but you can ride hard and still get a good workout.

Summary:
Pretty much agree with the other reviews. Not a great trail, but a good place to practice. The GREAT thing about this trail is that no one likes it, so I NEVER see anyone else riding it! Thus, I love it.

Recommended Route:
Red Trail

Summary:
TRAILS NOT CLEARLY DEFINED. MANY INTERSECTIONS WITH HIKING AND HORSE TRAILS. EASY TO TAKE A WRONG TURN WITHOUT A POCKET MAP. TRAILS NOT WELL KEPT FOR ATB RIDING. LOTS OF OVERGROWTH, WANT TO WEAR LONG SLEEVE SHIRT FOR SURE. GOOD FOR PRE-SEASON CONDITIONING, BAD IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A THRILL.

Summary:
Trails are very poorly marked, primarily hiking trails with some variety for MTB use. 4 loops to choose from ranging from 1.5 to 10 miles. Trails extremely difficult to navigate, lots of intersections. Make sure you have a map handy. Trails not maintained for MTB use, mostly horse routes.
