Lots of good ups and better downs. You can really rail on the turns. It's part of the Superior bike fest route. Do it again and again.

Nice! Almost all single track some steep climbs, some tricky (at first) rocky descents, and it gets easier and faster as you go. Nothing too big for cross country style riding but plenty fun!

At first I was a little disappointed with the marquette area trails because they are either short or two tracks I dont like any two tracks or cross country ski trails I've been on much at all...boring. I'm from down state and I miss yankee springs and the potowatomi trail. The hills are bigger here and the terrain is pretty awesome here though.
Eventually I learned to link the blue trail with the red trail for what makes about 8 miles of fun and the yellow needs a little more exploring.

Customer Service

I just drive behind the nordic bay lodge and find a place that looks like its for parking then follow the signs.

Depends on what you like to do "your mom" looks cool but i think its best with a freeride bike or something beefier than a crosscountry bike anyway.

So far I think the south trails are it for around here. Houghton's tech trails are pretty fun and not too far away. Bring a compass if you arent familiar with them because it really is a maze and the postings are rather confusing.

Riding with locals is highly reccomended many of the people at the bike shops in town are staffed with really cool people and have group rides.
