Saginaw County to Bay County Connector

Nice trail through marshland and farmland

May, 2020 by carolraz2000

We started the trail from the south end, which was tricky to find if you don’t know what you are looking for. There is no official parking for the trail. We parked by the cement factory. There was a very small, dirt path, maybe 60 yards, that we walked our bikes until we found an asphalt path. It looked fairly new, but the first almost half mile had weeds growing through the it. After that, it was well maintained. We saw and heard lots of birds. The path took us up to Bay City where we rode the River Walk then came back to the path. There was some parking by Hotchkiss Road, about halfway up the trail. Although there were some people on the trail, bicycling and in line skating, the trail was not too crowded.

Fred Meijer Heartland Trail

Pandemic Ride

May, 2020 by chipper53

I've been touting this as my favorite mid-Michigan trail for a long time. Had a beautiful day riding west from Alma on a Thursday in late May. Lots of activity and friendly bikers, which was comforting during this quarantine. Trail surface was smooth and seemed to survive the winter well.

Fred Meijer Heartland Trail

Fantastic Trail

May, 2020 by katzstudios19

Biked from Greenville to Alma one way. It was a nice and rather scenic ride, taking only about four hours (averaged 10.5 mph). The trail was in great shape, and there were hardly any bumps or holes. I would gladly do this trail again in the future!

Fred Meijer White Pine Trail State Park

Pretty awesome trail for a long ride

May, 2020 by joshuaco09

Rode this trail on 5/1/20 starting in Riverside park heading north. The trail itself is all paved and really smooth until it turns to grass/gravel right around Sand Lake. Even this part was not terrible but I turned around after 6-8 miles to head back towards the pavement.

The views through Rockford were quite amazing. The trail was also very busy upon return to GR and Rockford.

Highly recommend this trail for biking, walking, blading.

Fred Meijer Flat River Valley Rail Trail

decent trail but bumpy ride

May, 2020 by joshuaco09

Rode this today 5/3/20. The path itself is nice and wide but the gravel makes for a very bumpy ride. The scenery was pleasant but the best part of the trail was the two miles of pavement in Belding. If you’re trying to do a long ride find a different trail.

Bay County Riverwalk/Railtrail System

Great views!

April, 2020 by mcgiverncourtney

Wonderful ride today. I went a little off course so not only did I do the route, I managed to get in 26 miles. Lots of scenery, different kinds of turns and twists. Great overall. Nice paved sidewalks for most of the time.

Zilwaukee Pathway

perfect trail

April, 2020 by marekbuchalski

A great trail to just take a short bike or run a few miles. It’s very well up kept and has a nice stretch along the river

Granger Meadows Park Trail

Nice for people but not for pets

April, 2020 by cbedm22

The trails inside the park are well maintained and paved but if you are going for a walk with your dogs, you are in for a shorter and potentially muddy walk. There is only one area where dogs are allowed and it is on the outskirts of the park. It is an unpaved trail through the woods, which is easy to walk through but floods in areas after a rain.

Fred Meijer Flat River Valley Rail Trail

Love this trail

April, 2020 by cdeyoung1231

The new improved trail is a hidden gem. I run often from Foreman north. It has a slight incline which is great for doing negative splits when I run an out and back

Fred Meijer Flat River Valley Rail Trail

Too bad they graveled this trail instead of paving it.

March, 2020 by tdnoe

If paved with asphalt, this would be a great, scenic trail. Unfortunately there is a crushed asphalt, gravel surface not suitable for road bikes, recumbents or anything without fat tires.

Pere Marquette Rail-Trail

awesome trail!!!

October, 2019 by troy.d.young

Road the entire trail and back on Sunday. It was awesome and well worth the 2 hour drive to get there. We will be back!

Fred Meijer Heartland Trail

October 19

October, 2019 by andrew.driska

Road bike (15mph) from Jackson Landing to Stanton. Trail in good condition with some cracks at regular intervals. Leaves covering some of those cracks made it interesting at times. Peaceful setting.
