Manis­tee Na­tional For­est is lo­cated in the north­west of Michi­gan’s lower penin­sula. The Lumberjack 100 course uses a 33.3-mile (53.59-km) sec­tion of the park’s trails and is more than 90 per cent sin­gle­track. Rid­ers climb nearly 2,500 m, loop­ing through plenty of wind­ing and flowy sec­tions. The start is busy, jus­ti­fy­ing the 450-rider cap that makes the event sell out quickly, but rid­ers spread out. The fastest rid­ers vie for more than $7,000 in awards and prizes. The top fin­ish­ers also get a tro­phy of an axe buried in a log.
