Biking Information

Ready for a vacation where the good times roll?
Smile. You’ve come to the right place.

The resort communities that make up the Petoskey Area have earned quite a reputation among touring and mountain bikers alike.

If you enjoy touring, miles of paved paths offer breathtaking vistas. More of a mountain biking type? The trails here lead though some of northern Michigan’s most majestic forests. Some of the trails are wide and leisurely; some are laced with extreme terrain, jumps and narrow passages.
