Mosquito Creek Trails

Eleanor, 11: beginner, LOVE IT! I love all the jumps at the end of the trail, the seesaw, the downhills and the fun features Most beginner & intermediate skill levels will be happy at this woodsy trail just outside of Muskegon in Wolf Lake, MI. The green Faz track winds for 2.6 miles from the parking lot & back. The blue Matrix trail, 3.2miles, is accessed at 2 points following the Faz track. Mind the walkers, runners and dogs, as always share the trail and be respectful. Pros: Fun features and climbs for beginner to intermediate riders to enjoy. Green Faz track is a great alternative for young beginners who might only be able to handle 1 lap on the Matrix. It features a few bumps, sandy berms, and tight turns to practice your bike skills. A mostly well-maintained port-a-john on site is enough for us. Nice changing areas are also available. SeeSaw/Teeter-totter for a little fun pre or post rides. Cons: None that we have found yet as long as you don’t mind riding multiple laps for a good workout. Summary
