Plaster Creek Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Plaster Creek Trail provides a non-motorized way to access Grand Rapids neighborhoods via a pleasant, tree-lined route. The path meanders along a tributary of the Grand River from Ken-O-Sha Park to just past the Salvation Army Kroc Center at Division Avenue. The trail follows along city sidewalks at 28th Street SE/Route 11 (eastbound to Eastern Avenue) and Eastern Avenue (westbound to 28th Street).

Plans call for the trail to continue northwest from Division Avenue, connecting with the Oxford Street trail, which connects to Millennium Park, a gateway to many other trails.

Parking and Trail Access

A parking lot is available at the trailhead in Ken-O-Sha Park on the trail's eastern end.


Nice city trail

Walked the section between 28th (by Eastern) to Division and starting out it was actually really nice. Path is paved and wide with lots of shade. It sort of wanders away from Plaster Creek for most of it and you can almost forget the city is nearby. Near more

Great Short Hike

This is a little gem is nestled between Eastern and Kalamazoo Ave. just south of 28th st. Yes, it's a short trail and ends abruptly, but is a pleasant hike for a lunch break. Especially considering its location. A pleasant surprise. read more
