      Bald Mountain Recreation Area contains two separate mountain bike trails segments in the North and South Units, separated by a few miles of dirt roads. Wider, fast, flowing, and easily accessible these classic XC MTB trails are a local favorite.

      The South Unit trails are open to snowmobiles in winter and make for excellent fat bike riding. The South Unit also connects to Lake Orion High School‘s non-CRAMBA-IMBA, school-maintained mountain bike trails.
