      Built with flow and mountain biking as the primary use, this new trail system takes advantage of the seemingly never ending hills and ridges in a beautiful mature hardwood forest. Located just outside of Bellaire and taking advantage of the same topography as the now gone NORBA nationals trails at Schuss, Glacial Hills is one of the most exciting trails being built in the lower peninsula.
