Maple Hill Trail

Looking for Summer Fun? Ride the Maple Hill Trail


With summer in full swing, now is the perfect time to enjoy some of West Michigan’s outdoor activities. For mountain biking enthusiasts, the Maple Hill Trail offers five and a half miles of exhilarating trails for riders of all levels.


Created in 2017, the Maple Hill Trail is located in Markin Glen County Park and managed by the Southwest Michigan Mountain Biking Association (SWMMBA) and Kalamazoo County Parks. The trail is a natural surface, single-track experience with twists, turns, jumps and rock formations. The trail is great for beginners and advanced riders alike. Beginners can enjoy the trail slowly, while more advanced bikers can amp up their speed and tricks to make the course more challenging. The wide path allows for use in both directions, making it even more engaging for first-time riders and regulars alike.


At Maple Hill Auto, we’re proud to be associated with this unique destination. As title sponsors of the trail, we’ve been involved with the trail since the beginning. The idea to sponsor the trail came from two long-time customers-- a couple who own matching Subaru Outbacks. They suggested we might want to help support an outdoor project they were involved with. We jumped at the opportunity to get involved with the trail. We love supporting organizations across West Michigan and we're proud to sponsor the trail.


“Our loyal customers got us involved and we have been supportive ever since,” explained Maple Hill Auto Owner and General Manager Jim VandenBerg.


The Maple Hill Trail is a tribute to our region’s enthusiasm for the outdoors and our belief in supporting grassroots organization, like SWMMBA, to improve our communities. At Maple Hill Auto, we share these ideals, which motivates us to donate our time and funds to organizations and institutions working across the Kalamazoo, Portage, and Battle Creek region.


As part of our involvement with local biking, Maple Hill Auto also sponsors the Fort Custer Stampede, a mountain bike race that raises money for maintaining trails at Fort Custer, another one of our region’s stellar destinations for riders.


For bikers looking for the perfect vehicle to get you to your destination, Maple Hill Auto can help you pick out the perfect car, truck or SUV to meet your needs.
