What People Are Saying

[The Tioga trail] “creates a unique western canyon-like experience, complete with red rock cliffs, dramatic vistas, and local mining artifacts.”
— Pete Kero
I rode Tioga yesterday and IMO you have the best trails in the state, maybe not the most miles yet but unmatched variety. I felt like I was in the UP riding sometimes. The trail builders and planners are amazing. This is going to be a game changer for the area. Kudos.
— Tony Lima

About Flow Trail Design

Flow Trails are the future of mountain biking and have transformed the communities in which they’re built. Shaped specifically for mountain bikes, Flow Trails optimize the rider’s momentum to produce speed, rhythm and fun. Strategically placed berms, jumps, rollers and camber tread surfaces propel the rider forward with minimal braking and peddling as if riding a rollercoaster or floating in mid-air (i.e. disappearing bike effect). Check out this video of one of the longest Flow Trails in the world located on the Petzen mountain in Austria:
