The Longest Downhill MTB Trail In Michigan | Endless Downhill Mountain Biking

The Longest Downhill MTB Trail In Michigan | Endless Downhill Mountain Biking

Despite the lack of elevation we have here in Michigan, have you ever wondered where the longest downhill MTB trail is? Look no further… we found it! All the way up at the top of the upper peninsula, you’ll find Copper Harbor. While the town is small, the bike scene is not! Climb, or shuttle, your way to the top of Brockway Mountain to start your descent on what I believe is the longest downhill trail in Michigan!

Starting on The Flow, we will use this as a connector to reach the first main trial. Upon the first intersection, you’ll take a left onto Raptor Ridge. This is a very fast and flowy trail with a few jumps along the way. You’ll cross over the road and continue on Raptor Ridge until you see the big wooden drop. From here, you’ll jump onto Danimal and ride this down to Garden Brook. Take this all way to 41, where you’ll cross over the road and ride Copper Harbor Loop back to town. This will long you a near 4 MILE descent!

Is there a longer DH run in Michigan? Let me know down in the comments! Im curious to know for both length, and elevation!

  6. Windermere on August 23, 2022 at 1:38 am

  10. Tyan Elang on August 23, 2022 at 1:41 am

    Awesome long trail track👍👍
    I’ve Kandang Pitik Bike Park, about 3 miles, one of longest track in Java, Indonesia



  11. Peepeepoopoo on August 23, 2022 at 1:41 am

    Im thinking about getting an enduro bike with about the same amount of travel as yours has. How do you feel about having all the front and rear suspension. I know the dropper will help with climbing uphill but how do you feel about it



  12. The Liquidator on August 23, 2022 at 1:42 am

    where is this?



  13. David Wise on August 23, 2022 at 1:43 am

    The Mariner North Resort is an absolutely fantastic place to stay and the food is always good.



  14. Jakub Kost on August 23, 2022 at 1:43 am

    ok but, can the clash climb easili or is it just like super bad at it?(i take in cinsideration that it is a fr bike, but comencal mentions that it is the best climbing fr bike)

  18. Beginner To Whistler on August 23, 2022 at 1:47 am

    Going to be doing the Enduro at Copper Harbor in a couple months. Can’t wait! Sweet video, man.



  19. Micah Harris on August 23, 2022 at 1:49 am

    I’m not sure if it’s longer, but if you ditch danimal at the second drop and turn right into woopidy woo I believe it connects back to garden Brooke and is also right around 4 miles, super good stuff!



  20. Kristian Saile on August 23, 2022 at 1:50 am

    I don’t have e accurate stats but there are some ways to have some really long descents on East Bluff in CH on some if the new trails there.



  21. William on August 23, 2022 at 1:50 am

    Go to Bald Mountain North Loops in Lake Orion MICHIGAN



  22. TechJeeper on August 23, 2022 at 1:53 am

    Man I thought you’d quit posting! I was pretty bummed. Turns out YT just quit putting your video in my feed…I’ve got catching up to do.



  23. Kryptonite Playground on August 23, 2022 at 1:53 am

    I don’t think this route exists anymore. New land ownership has closed Danimal, downtown, overflow , stairway, over the edge (all the big feature trails) & caused a gardenbrook re-route… hopefully this changes in the future.



  24. The Biking Preacher on August 23, 2022 at 1:55 am

    Finally got to check out Marquette this past week for my wife and I’s 10th anniversary (first I’d three videos posting today). I can’t wait to check out Copper Harbor, especially after watching this vid! Thanks man!



  25. Rob Elliott - MTBMichigan on August 23, 2022 at 1:56 am

    Very cool route. I think I want to try it.



  26. icetech6 on August 23, 2022 at 1:58 am

    I would have to bring spare brake pads… no way i would keep that speed up



  27. HULK CR on August 23, 2022 at 1:59 am

    That trail is so goddamn fun ! Wish I lived near Michigan



  28. Chris Prysok on August 23, 2022 at 1:59 am

  32. Mario Diaz on August 23, 2022 at 2:05 am

    Hey cool video 😎 do you have the gpx file of this loop that I could import into trailforks?



  33. Trail Tracker on August 23, 2022 at 2:06 am

    Long descents are awesome. Just goes to show that you don’t need oodles of elevation to make some great! 🤘



  34. RAW MTB on August 23, 2022 at 2:07 am

    Nice video, loved the GoPro angle!! 🤘



  35. Dawson Vandecar on August 23, 2022 at 2:09 am

    Hey man! Great video, I live in the Lansing area and am getting into mountain biking again (road all the time when I was younger), got any other recommendations of places to ride?



  36. Josie's Bike Life on August 23, 2022 at 2:10 am

    Can’t wait to go back to Copper Harbor someday!



  37. Daniel Burris on August 23, 2022 at 2:12 am

  38. SourPatchPuss on August 23, 2022 at 2:13 am

  39. Olie K on August 23, 2022 at 2:13 am

  41. NukaColaNate on August 23, 2022 at 2:16 am

  42. Steffon Whitaker on August 23, 2022 at 2:20 am

  43. Jordan C on August 23, 2022 at 2:21 am

  44. John Doe on August 23, 2022 at 2:21 am

    Take out the garbage granny and grandpa dork music.



  45. TheGT3 click Crash on August 23, 2022 at 2:21 am

    Looks fun as hell. I’m taking a vacation there in a few months.



  46. RockWire Podcast on August 23, 2022 at 2:22 am

    My route is: down bulleinkle, garden brook, up raptor ridge and down flow. This doesn’t qualify for continuous down criteria thou.
    I also like down: red , up dancing bear and down downtown

    I feel gardenbrook/raptor and dancing bear are the only ride up options that won’t get somebody killed.



  47. Noah Hallam on August 23, 2022 at 2:22 am

    this looks sick this is what i wanna do



  48. Connor Nobbs on August 23, 2022 at 2:25 am

    Can’t wait till me and my dad move up there!!!!! Flat and boring north iowa sucks lol!



  49. Teddy Parker on August 23, 2022 at 2:26 am

    4:30 song was painful to my brain. (mute)

    Great video otherwise. Keyboard synth should probably stay in the 80s 😀



  50. MTB With EH3 on August 23, 2022 at 2:28 am

    Awesome!!
