      3/22/21 The mountain bike trails opened today, monitor trail condition updates here for ongoing updates during the season: https://www.facebook.com/groups/midmichtrailconditions/

      Burchfield has a fully signed 10+ mile mtb loop (it is shared with all trail users so be alert for trail runners, etc.). Follow the orange sign posts (don't turn before you get to the next one as there are some intersections you cross over). There are also shared hiking paths that can be ridden for an approx. 6 mile easy loop. There are some routes added if you want to download one from Trailforks and follow it.

      All trails are accessible by 3 trailheads at Burchfield Park, Riverbend Park, and McNamara Landing. The easiest place to find the trail is from the Riverbend lot. Use the parking at Burchfield (main entrance on Grovenburg) if you are interested in a swimming hole, grills, disc golf or canoeing to round out the day. There is a hand pump for water at McNamara and a pit toilet building. Riverbend lot has a portajohn, Burchfield has full facilities.
