Local/Nearby Bike Trails


At 20+ miles and five different loop, DTE Energy Foundation Trial is a must for mountain bikers. Located in Chelsea, MI, DTE is a massive undertaking that will be complete in 2020. The loops are singletrack that alternate everyday with Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday being clockwise and Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday being counterclockwise. The five trails are Green Lake Loop, the Big Kame Loop, Winn Loop, and the Sugar Loop. The Cassidy Loop is still under construction and should be finished in 2020. Each trail offers its own unique ride with varying technical levels and obstacles. 

Greenbelt Loop

Northriver/Vistula/Lagrange or the Eastside/Ironwood/Birmingham neighborhoods, offers some excellent spots for urban exploring. Starts from the intersection of Cherry and the Greenbelt Parkway, travels along the Parkway. One section then continues on, a small one that circles the Skyway on-ramp, though if taking the left side street you will eventually arrive at location of the former Cooks Department Store. The other section branches off to the right across the Greenbelt. This one weaves itself among the columns of the Skyway, and continues across the Craig Memorial Bridge.


One of Toledo's first Mountain Bike trails, this trail is located in Ottawa Park and the adjacent Jermain. A great overall MTB trail for the area, the 6.4 mile trail has something for all levels. Split into three sections, the first two are laid back switchbacks with little climbing. The third and newest section is a step up skill-wise with a bit of climbing and downhill, along with smaller jump options. 

Currently, a group of volunteers are working on improving and adding to trail, Toledo Area Mountain Bike Association
