      The Avalanche Mountain Preserve comprises 300 plus acres of woodland located on the southern border of Boyne City, Michigan in Charlevoix County and extends beyond the City limits into Wilson Township. The area is a predominantly sloping terrain with approximately 90% of the park wooded. The area offers many types of recreational activities including hiking, biking, skiing, skating, jogging and snowmobiling and the newest additions, an archery range and disc golf.

      The City of Boyne City, partnering with the Top of Michigan Mountain Bike Association (TOMMBA) and the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA), is installing new riding trails at Avalanche using best practices to avoid erosion, conflict with other users and being environmentally conscience of our treasured nature area. Professionals have been brought in to design the overall trail system and experienced trail builders will be on site working with volunteers to install the trails. The goal is to provide various trail routes that are well signed so all levels of riders from near and far can enjoy what we have to offer. Mature tree clearing is not a part of the trail project; however, saplings and underbrush may be removed. Phase 1 construction will begin in September of 2016.
