      The Ludington School Forest trails are an entry-level trail system with respect to climbing or any hills but there is some slightly technical single track woven in the 8 mile trail system. The Shoreline Cycling Club created the trails with permission from the Ludington Area School District on their property. Exiting shared use trails which are much more mile exist in the forest as well. The trail system has hosted the Singletrack Showdown mountain bike race, a small grass roots event since 2012. The north section of trails are groomed in the winter for a fat bike trail system.
