This is the best trail in the Thumb and Blue Water Area. They cram a lot of trail into a relatively small area. There are a lot of steep and quick climbs, and some fun little descents. I prefer it for trail running, but it's primarily a mtb trail. It costs 2 bucks to use, and it's based on the honor system as they have a little cash box. The trail crosses over itself a lot, so it can be somewhat difficult to stay on trail at first, but usually if you just trust your instincts, you'll stay on course. I measured it to be about 4.5 miles on Strava.

In an area starved for trails, Ruby stands out as the best. We don't have real mountains in the thumb, but Ruby does a lot with the hills that they have. It's a fun course, and you can give yourself a helluva workout. Highly recommended if you're in the area, and looking for a trail. You won't find anything better, and if you do, let me know.

Hiked the MRT side - great variety with river overlooks, marshes, rushing creeks, and great vistas. Will definitely be back and camp near overlook of a wide swath of the Manistee.

Loads of tripping tree roots and muddy seeps. The river and falls are not spectacular but it's nice to wade in the river. Mosquitos were not bad for July. Worth the visit.

I hiked this trail 43 years ago but after a recent day trip I plan on re-hiking it soon. There were terrible black flies but the hike along the lake was great.

Great trail. Wasn't too crowded even on a perfect Saturday. Lots of short up hills that even out with fun down hills. A few surprises along the way. Nothing too challenging for a beginner rider such as myself. Many spots to rest along the way. Trails are well groomed and marked.

Went on a Saturday and was told there was a bike race going on so can't ride. Fee for non-residents. Person at the entrance was super snobby and rude. No chance of me returning.
