      Exceptional, professional built single-track. The cutting-edge, sustainable trail is open to mountain bikers, trail runners, hikers and cross-country skiers and has been made possible by a partnership between the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, the Potawatomi Mountain Biking Association and a $255,000 grant from the DTE Energy Foundation. The nonmotorized, single-track trail will be approximately 25 miles long and is slated for completion in 2020. It will consist of five distinctively different loops over varying terrain. Known as "flow trail," the surface of the trail is mechanically cut to create highly structured grades and out slopes, which are low-maintenance and sustainable. The Green Lake loop is 5.25 mi. It is very flowy with many small hills and a few small jumps. There are a couple small features (with bypasses), log steps over a log, and a rock jump. The 4.75 mi Big Kame loop is more technical with two large rock gardens and many small to large jumps. It has several small hills and one very large one with big jumps. The newest trail Winn Loop is about 8 miles long. It has many large berms and big hills. There are many jumps some of which look like they came straight from a downhill park. Also, there are quite a few rock jumps and some skinnies of varying lengths. Overall the trail system is easily the best in the area.
