CX Practice Locations in Ann Arbor Area

Please remember…

Always be a good park and trail citizen: pass other trail users (walkers, runners, pets, etc.) with care, ease, and kind communication. Your ride/training isn't important enough to scare others or make it feel unsafe for others. If the conditions aren't conducive to what you're trying to accomplish, please find an alternate activity for that location or go to another location that works better for your goals.

Leslie Park
2900 Leslie Park Cir, Ann Arbor, MI 48105
Big open field, huge run up, unmaintained baseball diamond for cornering practice. Can link up with trail riding in Olson park (tight twisty good for bike handling).

Veterans (Vets) Park
2150 Jackson Ave, Ann Arbor, MI 48103
Hills, off camber, pavement, gravel. 

Buhr Park
2751 Packard Rd, Ann Arbor, MI 48104
Lots of grass and some terrain for making your own loops or doing drills.

Hunt Park
1035 Daniel St, Ann Arbor, MI 48103
Small but pretty good terrain. 

Rolling Hills
7660 Stony Creek Rd, Ypsilanti, MI 48197
Good mix of wooded trails and mowed grass. Trails aren’t anything too rowdy, some twisty stuff but no drops and not many roots. 

Hewens Creek
6515 Bemis Rd, Ypsilanti, MI 48197
Good mix of wooded trails and mowed grass. Trails aren’t anything too rowdy, some twisty stuff but no drops and not many roots. Pretty flat and twisty and very good for brake into the corner, sprint out of the corner CX style riding.

Lillie Park in Pittsfield Township
4365 Platt Rd, Ann Arbor, MI 48108
Some sand to practice in.

Island Lake Recreational Area
6301 Kensington Rd, Brighton, MI 48116
The "Badlands" area is your own personal sand dune hill repeats. You can follow that up with a lap around the trails for good measure.
