This trail was built in 2016-2018 and additional miles are still being added. This is definitely an intermediate ride with challenging short steep hills and tight switchbacks. Overall, there is a wide variety of soil types and vegetation and scenery. This is a great ride near a stream, with some rocks, through the pines, and all close to town. Very fun East Jordan has some great new restaurants in town.

Access Info

Parking is shared with the Senior Center in East Jordan on Mill Street.

      Lots of rain lately, so a few wet spots. Quite a few leaves accumulating now but not bad. Intermediate to advanced level trails. Lots of hills!
