It is impossible to ride this trail system without bumping into a tree at least once. The four loops are on singletrack so narrow and twisty that handlebars can hook a tree at any moment. The Highland Trail System, developed in 1994, offers 16 miles of tough trails and several short, steep hills, making it the most challenging trail system in southeastern Michigan. Signs mark the beginning of each loop with mileage and elevation gain, so it is almost impossible to get lost. Tread: 16.7 miles of singletrack.
