Bloomer in Rochester Hills - Trail, Rochester Hills, Michigan

DESCRIPTION

Singletrack and fire roads with a nice DH/loopy/switchbacky/superfun hill wall section. This is a great place to train for hills since it has some of the steepest I have ridden yet in Michigan, not to mention its close proximity to yuppieville.

I grew up about 1/2 mile from where there is now a trailhead access point off Letica Drive in downtown Rochester. Rode the heck out of these trails all through high school and I still ride it whenever I can get up to visit my parents. There are literally trails for all skill levels, and even though I have been riding there 15+ years, I still find new paths to take when exploring the singletrack. Great switchback sections, even one or two that are super steep, as well as some more moderately technical singletrack/switchbacks and plenty of easier winding trails and fire roads, too.

Customer Service

M-150 (Rochester Road) to 2nd Street, right turn on second street, second street turns in to Letica Drive and there is a small parking lot/trailhead on the right (south) side of the street. If that is full, you can park in the empty parking lot across the street which is a stamping plant, or you can park in downtown Rochester about 1mi away.

I grew up a 1/2 mile from this trail and return every year to ride it when I visit the 'rents. It's great riding, even when compared to the massive singletrack network of the Pisgah National Forest where I live in NC. Fast, tight switchback singletrack, "hill repeat" climbing in and out of a river valley, and, if you look for them in a double-secret location, some incredible technical stuff that I'm not going to describe because I'm note sure if it's legal... anyway, this place is fantastic, if you're in or from SE MI, check it out.

Customer Service

You're going to haveto explore- this area is so tight that you to make up your own routes, but you can link everything so you use a few main "arteries" to swing into singletrack sections for a total of 10-12 miles of great riding.

THis place gets 5 flaming whatever the heck they have now....chilis or wheels....? because it's a 5 mile traffic battle ride from my house. Fun place to go for an after work ride.

Customer Service

go down the singletrack to the river from behind the velodrome, and hang a left along the river till you get to the big hill with trails on it. Ride this loop until you throw up, then go get a latte....

Very tight single track that runs next to the river, Man made obsticles from 3' to 16' A lot of sand and roots, If it rains the trail changes because of downed trees and over flowing river. The main part of the trail inside Bloomers park is tight, technical, off camber hillside traversing the first half is mostly DH and then back up and across.
Once you find a route stick to it, its very easy to get lost when new to this trail

Customer Service

Take Dequinder rd. till it ends make a right , park iin lot on the left. Go back over little bridge and through the fence and follow the river!

Damn you Michganers for having far better MTB trails than Cleveland will ever have.

Zooming switchbacks, tight hillside-hugging singletrack, precariously planked log bridges, fast flats, big jumps, little jumps, mud ... just about everything I wish I had in my city. Something for everybody from newbie to shredder. Damned fine place to spend a few hours and cheat death. I'm coming back as soon as I can.

Customer Service

Bloomer Park parking lot. Park next to velodrome.
