Split Tree was basically the trail that got me into riding. Its not the hardest trail and its definately too short (worth the ride for sure, but when it ends you'll be bummed) as you could take a loop and ride it three times before dinner. In the end, its pretty much the perfect trail if you just wanna jump on your bike and have a fun but not too rigorous ride. For an extra treat, when you reach some kind of powerline overhead right before a downhill, get off your bike and hike strait up. When you reach the top (not much of a hike) you'll be treated to a tight view of the marquette area, a lot like the one at the top of mt. marquette. Oh and if you fall in the rock garden, fall to the left, trust me.

Recommended Route:
The way I always take is just too hard to explain, just use the other ways listed.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
I recommend just finding a random trail and getting lost, bring a sleeping bag and a six pack (and your best friends little sister), its hard to go wrong around here.

Split tree is one of the newer trails in the greater Marquette trail system giving the adventerous soul a sweet downhill with some ups. Developed to give riders a rollercoaster feel with some super steep sections along with some minor airs. Split tree is famous for its huge banked turns and sudden drops. This trail is a must if you come to the area.

Recommended Route:
Find a local if you want to ride it. its tough to find the trail head.
