The trails here are very easy, and very beautiful. From what I could see, there is a very nice mountain bike trail. I will be coming back to these trails with my bike.

Excellent Mountain biking trail! Most Technical trail in West Michigan! Not for beginners!

Nice, well marked trails. Never felt crowded, even though the trails were busy this weekend. Took a little bit to find the mountain bike entrance though, located off 84th ave.

Nice park that has a lot to offer in the aspects of nature and space for hikers and mountain bikers. Enjoy.

The walking paths are mowed grass paths in the fields out in the open and the "river" was not very exciting. What little I saw of the MTB trails looked nice. We should have hiked them instead.

First time on the trail while visiting from Chicago and loved the mountain bike loop as a trail running route. It was varied hilly amd moderately techincal terrain and was tough enough to get a great trail run workout in when I only had 45 minutes to squeeze in a short 4 mile run. I would definitely come back again. Only downside was that you have to drive to the 84th ave entrance, not the main enterance, to get to the mountain bike trails.
