This is the southernmost bike-legal section of the North Country Trail in Michigan. It's easily accessible from M-20 near White Cloud for folks coming from I-131. The indicated track here is bike-legal, it isn't permissible to bike south or north of the indicated track on the NCT. This is a great track for some old-school cross-country riding, lots of gnarly ruts, bombing descents, and leg-wrecking climbs. Take it at your speed and it'll meet your level, but be prepared for a workout. Further north sections of the NCT have more elevation, but don't kid yourself, this isn't flat either.

Access Info

Parking lot on south side of M-20. Marked for NCT.

 A great wilderness ride, 40 miles round trip was a great length. My only thing would be that the scenery was limited as the trail was mostly in rolling woods the whole time. It got to be more about training out lactic acid than soaking in views.
