Your description fits the bill minus the jumps. Merrill might be more up your alley if you're looking for machine built flow trail to ride.[/quote]

Awesome, thank you!

Rode this trail for the first time this morning...it's frickin' awesome! I rode the ski area first and then went down to the game area and I was blown away. This trail rocks! It reminds me a lot of my home trail (Ionia) but way more technical. I will definitely be back and will bring a buddy next time.

Big oak down in the last section near the tree bridge we ride under. Keep an eye open. A decent size Pine down as well in the prior section but we moved it. Trail is a blast!

Heard the same thing from someone that was there. Said it rode pretty great with the exception that the step over the log wasn't setup to go the reverse direction.
Unknown reason why.
Speculation....maybe a trial run to see if it can be setup like Merrel?

The opposite direction made for a great ride, a lot of fun. The climbs were good, the trail had some great flow and the rain made the trail solid. Took a few to get a feel in section 4, section 3 was fast and flowing, good climbs, section two was short and quick and section 1 was fast. I'd like to see the direction switched up like Merrill, adds a new dimension to the trail system in Northern Kent County.

The trail direction change was unauthorized by wmmba or land manager.
Last day to ride there is today! Hunting season starts Sunday.

Rode by this afternoon. Trails is covered in bumpy snow and ice completely, no tire tracks, fat bike or otherwise. Didn't look like it could be ridden.
