The Winn Loop is 8 miles long. It has many large berms and big hills. There are many jumps some of which look like they came straight from a downhill park. Also, there are quite a few rock jumps and some skinnies of varying lengths. The Winn Loop has beautiful lakeside views of the Winnewana Impoundment.

Access Info

All trail loops are directional based on day of the week. On Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays bikes travel clockwise on all loops, with foot traffic going counterclockwise. On Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, these directions are reversed for the respective users. In winter, parts of the trail system are groomed for “floatation use only” – fat tires, xc skis or snowshoes. Check the Facebook page for latest updates.

Disclaimer

This trail closes during wet/erosive conditions. Check the DTE Facebook page linked below for current conditions.

       This is the crown Jewel of S.E Michigan. Fast and flowy is the name of the game here. Smooth rolling throughout with big berms and jumps on the downs. Of course the ups are just as big, but the payoff is SO worth it. Please, please, please build more of this style of trail.

       This trail is a ripper. You just pedal as fast as you can for as long as you can. The ups aren't that big and the payoff on the backside makes you want to get up them as fast as possible. So many berms and so many jumps into the berms. Just enough rock work to add a little spice to the trail. Amazing scenery and that sandy soil is so nice. We got caught in a downpour and the conditions just kept getting better and better. I can't like this place enough.
