Get Pedaling and Try Some of Michigan’s Best Mountain Bike Trails
Load up your mountain bike and try somewhere new this summer.
Michigan is one of the most beautiful places to live. The scenery and seasons give you the full gauntlet of weather and offer something for everyone. This great state also has no shortage of activities to try. From the adrenaline rush of skydiving to the calm atmosphere of tubing down the river, we've got it all. Between those two extremes, we have mountain biking.
The trail systems throughout Michigan are almost endless. You don't have to look far to find a mountain bike trail that fits your skill level. Whether you are just a beginner in the world of mountain biking or you are a pro looking for a challenge, you can find a great place on the list below to try.
There are hundreds of trails in the state. Some are just a couple of miles long and some will take you hours to complete. The folks at Singletracks.com have done a really great job of breaking down all of these trails, so if you want to find the perfect trail for you, click here to see their rankings and helpful info. I have included some of their top-ranked trails as well as some highly ranked trails on Google to give you some options.
I really need to get out and try some of these trails. It would be a new challenge to me as typically, I only do "city biking" which is fun but doesn't pose much of a challenge. If you have a favorite that isn't on the list, be sure to leave it in the comments.
