SEASONAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE TRAIL...
Marilla Trail Head Mountain Biking
From Cadillac -Travel west on M-115 for 20 miles. Turn left and travel west on Hodenpyl Dam Rd. for 5.5 miles. The trail head is on the left after a steep hill. This single track, sometimes mountainous trail, is scenic, but has steep drop-offs in some areas. Most of the trail is not heavily trafficked and has a remote, far away from the city feel. It is a is a 9 mile out and back from Marilla, which is a climb on the way out.
Deer hunting season is November 15-30, therefore it is best to avoid using the trail during this time. Also, not all of the NCT trail segments are bike friendly, please be aware of the trail markings.
