This beginner loop is the first of several phases of trail to be constructed at Mosquito Creek by Dirt Artisans, a professional trail building company. The track is fast, wide, and flowy, and is groomed in the winter for fat bikes.

Please follow common sense guidelines when using the trail and avoid when muddy. Please avoid during spring thaw. Think before you sink

Access Info

Trailhead is right off Maple Island Road on the east side. It is just past the Muskegon SGA headquarters entrance if you're coming from the south.

      Ground frozen in spots, soft in others. Snow and leaves covering the entire trail. Surface is slick in spots. Was great on fat tires today.
