Marquette (MI) Bronze-level
The Marquette County Trails Network Ride Center consists of three separate clusters of trails totaling more than 50 miles of singletrack near the shores of Lake Superior in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
The Marquette South Trails feature the greatest variety, with 30 miles ranging from beginner-level singletrack to extreme, expert-level downhill courses. The Marquette North Trails focus on the natural beauty of the Dead River Valley and the Harlow Lake State Forest. There are several miles of easier trail near the Tourist Park trailhead in Marquette's city limits, while the Harlow Lake area features challenging freeride trails built on granite outcrops.
Outside the Marquette County Trails Network Ride Center, the trails in nearby Ishpeming are highlighted by a number of tight, twisting routes that maximize the rugged terrain. Finally, certain trails in all three clusters are groomed for winter snow bike riding.
