About Our Singletrack Trails

Trails are OPEN for dirt season! While trails do drain well, we ask that you use common sense during and after rain. Give the trails time to dry out and if you do venture out and are leaving a rut or deep footprints, choose a different route. 

There are two seasons for NTN Singletrack: Dirt Season and Snow Season! Enjoy.

  • Trails are multipurpose, unless signed otherwise, so please respect all trail users.
  • Trail use contains inherent risk.  Use trails at your own risk. 
  • Please support trail efforts by purchasing an NTN Singletrack Membership.
  • For Emergencies dial 9-1-1.

The NTN Singletrack trail system is a network of trails in Marquette designed for non-motorized recreational use. There are two primary trail systems: NTN North Trails and NTN South Trails. Parts of the trail network have been around for 20 or more years, but new trails are constantly being built using sustainable guidelines for design and construction. The system can be accessed directly from town, at a number of locations along the Iron Ore Heritage Trail or at main trailhead locations.Fallbike

The singletrack system has received national acclaim as a premier mountain bike destination in several publications including Bike Magazine, Silent Sports Magazine and others. In 2014, the NTN Singletrack trails were awarded status as an International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) Ride Center.  One of two in Michigan.

Printed maps are available at all the local bike and run shops or navigate with the online maps and apps at these sites:
