      The Potowatomi Mountain Biking Association (PotoMBA – www.potomba.org), an International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) Chapter, is spearheading the trail development with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR). In February 2015, PotoMBA and MDNR signed an Operating Agreement to construct the Midwest’s most epic mountain bike trail system. In early 2016, the DTE Energy Foundation provided over a quarter-million dollars to fund trail construction, and the trail was rebranded from the “Waterloo Trail” to the DTE Energy Foundation Trail. The first 5.2 mile loop of the trail at Green Lake was completed in June 2016. The second, loop on “the Big Kame” was completed in May 2017. Additional loops will be opening each year until 2020. Total trail mileage will proximate 20+ miles.
