This is a one way, directional trail. Expect an expert level trail with steep side-slopes, berms, rocks, drops, and jumps. Some of the technical features have ride-arounds but not all of them. As always with an expert level trail, you should ride with caution especially over the larger features until you feel comfortable with them. Look before you leap

We do everything possible to create the best trail experience on each new trail we build. This includes many hours of hand finishing and compacting. However, every new trail has a "break in" period until it truly gets packed and ridden in. Please do your part to respect the trail by not skidding or creating ruts until the trail surface is completely firm. We will continue to monitor how the trail rides in and make any modifications as needed.

Thank you to Boyne City for supporting this trail system and especially to all the volunteers for your hard work. This could not happen without you
