A very well marked city park singletrack loop.

Overview

Don't run during spring freeze/thaw cycle.
Nine miles of trail including many bike-specific log piles and a few wooden bridges. Enjoy this great network of trails that have continued to increase in length and the fun factor over the last few years. It's actually one of Michigan's best-kept secrets.

Need to Know

The number one tip is to bring bug spray.

Description

This run offers a little of everything that you'll find in Michigan: tight, twisty singletrack through heavily-wooded areas, open doubletrack, switchbacks, and some interesting bike-specific areas.

The run is considered moderately technical. There aren't many big climbs, but there are three short and steep ones with switchbacks all in a row. The trails dry out fast in the rain, and this is one of the first areas to be ready after the spring thaw. There's some sand, but things still hold up well even into the late summer.

The full run is nearly 11 miles in length, but it's possible to shorten things at many different points depending on your appetite for mileage and available time (it can seem a lot longer when you are running it). New signage installed in 2016 makes it one of Michigan's best-marked trails! Two trailhead kiosks, one at the Stubnitz Center and one in the soccer parking lot. Paper maps available at both.

History & Background

The area was a family farm until the early 70's.
