North-South Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Finally, after all these years of mountain biking, we get to ride part of the North-South Trail! Only recently opened to mountain bikes, the 31-mile trail comprised of single-track and smidgen of old woods roads running from the North Welcome Station to Golden Pond is a great all-day ride. If it's not enough for you, it links to the Canal Loop, giving you 45 miles of knobby-tired fun. If you're not up to the whole enchilada, it's easy to break this ride into shorter loops. Water is a big feature on this ride. This trail is located between Grand Rivers and Golden Pond."
