      The C.S. Mott Nature Preserve is a 3,600 acre nature preserve owned by the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy. The Conservancy works hard to balance the public uses offered on their preserves with the protection of nature features, unique habitats, and scenic beauty. The professionally designed (in conjunction with IMBA) single track trail follows contour lines that flow through hills of northern hardwood forest with a few open fields. Here's what local mountain bikers are saying about the Dry Hill and Chestnut Trails at Arcadia Dunes: "great trails with scenic views.", "a roller-coaster, single track thrill ride through the forest.", "sweet flowing single track with some punchy climbs and fast swooping downhills."
