    Good downhill in MI?

    Does anyone know a good spot to ride where I can battle the incline for a nice long smooth descent?

    Smooth?

    In the lower pen you basically have Boyne Highlands for lift serviced or copper ridge in Traverse City for walk a bike. In the upper pen you have Marquette mountain and trail system as well as Copper Harbor trail systems.

    I'm going up to Highlands this weekend if you're interested.

    Unfortunately I work this weekend, I get a lucky one weekend off a month ;-) Boyne Highlands, that is very close to my grandfathers property in Wolverine. Beautiful country up there, definitely worth the 5+hr drive! It looks like they have a lot to offer there at the resort, I'll definitely have to add that to my must visit places next season if I can't make it up this year.
    And wow, the trails at Copper Ridge look pretty intense too! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XQuNuwMLQY

    Boyne

    I did Boyne Highlands a few years ago, totally underestimated it and took a pretty good endo,,,needless to say it was great and I cant wait to go back at some point. Sadly this year its not in the cards,,sure would be nice if Mt Holly or somewhere down state could set up lift assisted runs.

    Isn't Mt. Brighton spinning the lifts for bikes this summer?
