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.

       Trail definitely has potential but is in desperate need of signage! Spent way too much time backtracking and trying to find the right trail
