Community of the Month: Trail Ridge Estates


Trail Ridge Estates is the place to build an affordable new home in a quiet, private area between Flint and Grand Blanc.

Building a brand new home in Trail Ridge Estates offers homeowners more sunlight, breathing room, and privacy than renting or buying a used home in an older neighborhood. Its large home sites and tranquil streets make Trail Ridge Estates a wonderful place to raise a family.

Located in Burton, Trail Ridge Estates is on the cusp between Grand Blanc and Flint, with access to Grand Blanc schools due to a special annexation. Active families enjoy the Richard Hartker Soccer Complex located within walking distance of the community, as well as the several state parks in the area. Ortonville State Recreation Area and Seven Lakes State Park are available for boating, fishing, hunting, hiking, and cross country skiing, and 20 minutes away, the Mt. Holly Ski and Snowboard Resort features a large lodge, heated patio, 4 snowboard courses, and 19 ski trails.  The Genesys Regional Medical Center, the leading health care provider in mid-Michigan, is less than 20 minutes away.  Downtown Flint and Grand Blanc offer unique dining and shopping, while nearby Genesee Valley Center offers national-brand retail. Residents find travelling is made easier with convenient access to US 23, I-75, and I-69 and Bishop International Airport 10 minutes away.

In 2013, U.S. News & World Report recognized Grand Blanc schools as an outstanding school system and ranked Grand Blanc High School among the top 30 schools in the state. Grand Blanc High School is in a partnership with University of Michigan-Flint to provide free online tutoring, the Advanced Placement (AP) program, and high school dual enrollment so that advanced students can receive college credit before graduation. A strong Career and Technical Education (CTE) program allows students to take courses in Automotive Technology, Child Psychology, Pre-Engineering, Industrial Arts and Technology, and Robotics that expose students to valuable vocational training. Home to the Bobcats, Grand Blanc is also known for its excellent athletics program. Holy Family Elementary, the local private Christian school, offers PK and K – 8 educations.
