This Trail is in Phase II. Whether visitors are seeking a serene walk or snowshoe through the woods, a heart pounding two-hour mountain bike adventure, a 10k trail run, or a pristinely groomed fatbike trail, the Mosquito Creek Trails will be the regions go to MULTI-use trail system. The 500-acre project in central Muskegon County is highlighted by the forested valley of Mosquito Creek. This collaborative recreation improvement project is spearheaded by Muskegon County and Michigan’s Edge Mountain Biking Association. Premier trail professionals have designed sustainable trails for all interest and skill levels of trail users. The trail system will include five trails with 3+ miles that accommodate all skill levels.
The 550-acre project area in central Muskegon County, located approximately 4 miles north of M46/Apple avenue intersection at 2190 N. Maple Island Rd, is highlighted by the forested valley of Mosquito Creek. Michigan’s EDGE mountain bike club contracted Dirt Artisans of Covington, KY to develop the design and build multi-use, sustainable trails on the Mosquito Creek Parcel in Muskegon County, Michigan in 2017.
The first phase of our project will give trail users a “taste” of what we are trying to accomplish. At approximately three miles in length and three feet in width, the “Faz Track” is a machine built trail that flows very well for relatively flat terrain. This is a perfect beginner loop that welcomes all abilities (even young children) and will be a phenomenal fat bike loop. Completed and opened 3/2019.
We have a bathroom and changing station at the trail head. The parking lot is directly across from Messinger road on Maple Island Rd.

The second and third phase will finish the project and give the multi-use trail its reputation as the best trail in West Michigan. Measuring around 8 miles in length, the Matrix, Infiniti, and Saints’ Loop will showcase the property as it parallels Mosquito Creek on both sides. One bridge will connect the north and south side of the creek.
Phase Two: The Matrix. 3.1 Miles
Phase Three: 5+ miles offering a large bridge with multiple puncheons and features. To Open 5/21
