      The trail offers a little of everything that you will find on trails in Michigan: tight twisty singletrack through heavily wooded areas, open double-track, sweet flowing singletrack with switchbacks, some interesting technical areas (log piles, bridges, rock garden, downhill with drop-offs) and a VERY fast downhill we call Big Bertha. Of course you could always ride it backwards and call it a BIG KICK BUTT climb The trail is considered moderately technical. There are not many big climbs, but there are three short steep ones with switchbacks in a row. Also there are some off camber climbs as well as on the descents.

      The trail dries out fast in the rain, and is one of the first trails to be ready after the spring thaw. There is some sand, but not like a lot of the trails get in the late summer. There is a lot of the trail that isn't sandy and is really fast and fun when it's dry in the summer. There also is some problems in the summer with overgrowth... but hey only a few people help maintain this area and they have done a heck of a good job at that! This trail has grown in length and increased in the fun factor in the past 5 years - is actually one of Michigan's best-kept secrets.

      The mileage is somewhere in the 7-10 mile range depending on how much double -track and park/meadow road you want to ride. It seems a lot longer when you are riding it. It's also a city park so there is no hunting allowed. There are some trail markings and a map in the parking lot, but the best way to get around is to ride with a local. #1 TIP = BRING BUG SPRAY!!!
