There are two loops on this trail. The Green Lake loop (5 miles) is novice level for all activities and the Big Kame loop (4 miles) is intermediate level. Due to the direction that traffic flows, if you want to do the Big Kame loop then you have to do the complete trail (both loops).

Lots of bikes but beautiful woods.

Had to stop frequently for bikes on a Sunday. Lot at m52 was full. Pretty trail but some of it is lost in the moment because you need to be on high alert for bikes on each blind corner/hill. The cut through trail from Kame to Green Lake was very pretty! It went right through a sunny corn field. I'd come back on a weekday to see if there are fewer bikes. No service, download your maps!!

Kinda hard to find, by the way it has a sign that labels it DTE trail or something. Be mindful as there are a lot of mountain bikers, and they have it set up so hikers walk the opposite direction, which lead to a couple times a fast biker with headphones almost slammed us.

Good for mountain biking. Also for hiking if not too many bikes. Fun and challenging.

I've had a blast riding these trails this summer. The green lake loop is a fun challenge and a great first trail if you are new to mountain biking. The big kame loop is a bit more techinical and a notch or two more physical. For an added challenge combine the loops for double the ride.

The Green Lake loop is a good beginner trail for both trail running and mountain biking. The newly created Big Kame loop is intermediate level for both with more obstacles (rocks, tree roots). The trails are in very good condition. Small lot that holds about twenty vehicles. It is busy most of the time; however, you don't see many people out on the trail.
