Following the north side of the creek, the Buck Creek Trail provides a pleasant route through Grandville's neighborhoods and, with a newer extension, connects the downtown area with a network of trails along the Grand River and up to Grand Rapids via the Grand River Pathway and Kent Trails. The trail was built on a gypsum mine, which travelers can read about on two historical displays.
A highlight of the Buck Creek Trail is Wedgwood Park, offering many recreational amenities, including a baseball field, volleyball court, horseshoe pits and picnic grounds.
From the east, take Ivanrest Avenue south from the intersection with Prairie Street and turn right on 34th Street SW. At the intersection with Wayburn Avenue, the trail begins along the sidewalk on the north side of the street.
From the west, follow Baldwin Street to the last intersection before the Interstate 196 on-ramp. Turn north to park at the Grandville Clean Water Treatment plant located at 15 Baldwin Street. Follow the Grand River Pathway to the bridge over Buck Creek and turn right at the second path to follow the creek under the highway.
