More popular with bikers than hikers it seems. $5 for non-residents. Nice trails but nothing spectacular. Difficult to pay money when there are so many free trails around.

Great trail! Definetly challenging. Hilly, Muddy, Rocky and lots of tree roots. Keeps you on your toes. We loved every mile.

Wonderful dirt trail along the lake. Under a high canopy of falling leaves you still need to look down while walking for the occasional root system. Pretty views of the lake on the oak grove entry point.

New at this. Liked the routes but I would not consider it easy. Will hike the trails to get more of a feel for where I am going. Will return to this park many times for hiking and biking. So pretty.

Great trail. Lots of tight spaces, bit too technical for beginners.

Very challenging. Hilly. You’re sharing the trail with horses so watch where you step. Quite poorly marked and we got lost. But pretty and mostly quiet.

Very technical and fun for all levels of riding. Trail can be a bit confusing at times but it's always well maintained.

The trail are slightly confusing but I really enjoyed my hike! I will be back for the bike trails!

My daughter and I hiked this on a Saturday morning. The weather was a bit cool, so great for hiking and very few bugs. We hiked the A-B-C trails, which was about 13 miles.

A - 3.8 miles
B - 5.9 miles
C - 2.4 miles
D - 3.8 miles

The trail is marked every 1/2 mile, but we did miss a few markers because they can be a bit hard to see. The "points of interest" really weren't and we did not "see" any of them. The trails go up and down, and switchback often. Lots of roots and rocks. There is not much change to the trails.

There were plenty of mountain bikes. They can get going down the hills with limited visibility, so a couple of times they came up on us fast.

This is a harder “moderate trail. Lots of climbs and sharp turns to keep you on your toes and out of your seat.

Good overall trail with many rocks and roots with steep and long climbs with steep descents. Not for beginners but nice trail but be sure to bring lots of water and extra tires or patches .

I hike this park often, it is a scenic park. the trails offer a wide variety of landscapes, hills, switch backs, heavy hardwoods, pines, lakes, ponds and scenic overlooks.

used this trail for training for my 50 miler. it's a 10 mile loop(ignore the 6.9 claim in the description) and it has walking trails that cross 0every so often so you can shorten it to any distance easily.
most of the traffic are mountain bikers.

These trails are super fun. Mostly easy climbs, a little technical in sections of single-track switchbacks, and the sand in sections requires some peddling. Beginner or expert, these trails can entertain anybody, except hikers. They are indeed multi-use, but the bikers really out number all others.

we brought our bikes. a little hard for my 5 year old... but we did go 3.39 miles! not paved, i think that was what made it the hardest. but so pretty and quiet. gasp... bugs, there were bugs outside. we survived, did not donate to much blood to the suckers. will for sure be back!

This trail is great! The winding path, hills, and terrain keep it interesting, as well as the beautiful forest views. Much more enjoyable than most of the trails we've hiked in SE Michigan. Not many mosquitos, surprisingly.

Using this trail to prep for a thru-hike of Isle Royale.

Just make sure you listen for bikers. They come around the curves quickly and you can't always see them around corners.

Pontiac lake mtb trail was great to run. I'll definitely be back.

A pretty easy out and back hike. Part of the trail is a shared equestrian trail so you have to watch where you step. There's a nice scenic overlook above Pontiac Lake. The park abuts Oakland County Intl Airport so you still hear a lot of air traffic here...just no getting away from it. other than that, a nice little hike that could be followed up by a swim of you're inclined.

Did the Penosha and Kahchin trails a couple days ago. Well marked, get paper maps at the gate. All trails start off the parking lot at Bishop Lake. Very few bugs on the day I went, using a basic low-Deet bugspray. Looks like the previously eroded areas others mentioned have been reinforced with rubber [recycled tires?] gradations to prevent future erosion. Saw a few people on the Penosha nearer to the far parking area, but otherwise it was quiet. Great hike in a wooded area. There is a paved half-loop around Bishop Lake that was very scenic. Swimming area at the lake if you plan to cool off afterwards.

Good hike! A lot of sites to see, also a nice lake in the area. Will visit again!

it's not marked greatly and also very labirinth alike.i can say mountain bikers enjoy it

I highly reccomend taking the "harder" section of this trail, there are many jump areas to go on including rigerous uphills followed by flowing downhills

beautiful land but far too many bikes to make for an enjoyable walk with the dogs. have to be on high alert 100% of the time watching for them around tight corners.

Very well marked trail. Decent for all skill types.

I thought it was a nice trail - no major points of interest along the way, but it wasn’t bad. I hiked along the A and part of the B loop (took the cutoff back to A part way through the B section). It took me about about 2 1/2 hours and I think it was somewhere around 6 miles. Definitely bring bug spray, I couldn’t really stop because the bugs would just start to swarm around me if I stopped moving. This is a good trail if you want some distance to get in some exercise. I’m not a mountain biker, but it seems like it would be a pretty smooth trail to ride on.

Great trail! Here for a wedding great way to get some exercise in.
