Fred Meijer Heartland Trail

Best part of the trail was Alma MI

July, 2020 by cpa2

We started the trail in Edmore where we found the parking lot and washroom facilities in excellent condition. The trip to Alma took us about three hours including a wonderful stop in Riverdale at the Riverdale Tavern that dates back to 1917! Great clean tavern with with very friendly service. We stopped there on our trip back as well. Yes the trail could use a little maintenance, but we are from IL where almost all the trails are in need of that. We found the trail's condition better than most. We traveled on a Monday and Tuesday so the traffic was very light. The best part was Alma. We stayed at Saravilla Bed and Breakfast. I highly recommend it for it's history, perfect location and bike friendly Innkeeper. We had diner at the Alma Brewing Company and it was superb. At 72 years of age I like to take our bike trips in two bites and it's rare to find such a welcoming town where we can stay for the turnaround.

Fred Meijer Heartland Trail

In need of maintenance

July, 2020 by ljwerner

Rode from the small trail-side parking on S. Lake Road in Greenville to the picnic pavilion in Edmore on July 20, 2020. The trail is in need of a little TLC. There were large cracks in the asphalt that grass/weeds has begun to grow and this stretched nearly all the way to Sidney. Then there were several deep potholes along the edges that weren't marked. A hazard for any biker. The whole trail is in dire need of a good sweeping. The weeds / brush / trees in various areas have begun to overhang and obstruct the path. It's normally a lovely trail to ride. But will not be riding this section again until some cleanup has occurred. It's probably a Covid-19 thing. Sad.

My husband and I went bike riding on this section of trail on July 4th 2020. Very nice, has shady areas and we did not have any issues with bugs though we did go early. Are horses allowed on this section of the trail as I ride on the section from Stockbridge to Gregory but the Hawkins staging is closer for me.

ignore old reviews

June, 2020 by lindaturek

This trail is beautiful from start to finish, well maintained, with many different views and settings. There is urban, country, woods, river, stunning residential, etc. Recommend beginning at Benjamin Davis

Battle Creek Linear Park

Not maintained, unsafe

June, 2020 by nextralfires

The asphalt is beat up from tree roots, lots of debris on the paths, low hanging tree limbs, messes from homeless people. Signs missing to tell you where to turn making it hard to follow trail.
Has lots of potential, and could be an excellent path if maintained.

Mike Levine Lakelands Trail State Park

is going to be popular but keep in mind the new section

June, 2020 by bcleve108

It takes a few years to “season” a crushed stone trail and regrade it. So the new section from Hawkins Rd parking lot to Stockbridge is great now but will show some degradation with rains and use. Be patient as this happens as this section is very scenic and relaxing. You get some good looks at real working farms as you ride literally right through them

Fred Meijer Flat River Trail

Easy ride loop

June, 2020 by tim36r

Starting from the Tower Park Trail head this path is a very easy 7 mile loop. M-91 was the only road crossing that was a challenge with higher speed heavy traffic. All other road crossing were light travel neighborhood streets.
The trail follows the river for the first half of the loop and you will cross M-57 and M-91 for the second time on trail under the road bridge.
The second half of the trail follow the roadway around the Greenville schools and a tunnel allows passage back under M-57.
A mile or so later you descend down a long hill to the beach at Baldwin Lake. When you reach the beach turn left and follow the lake front road. A left turn at Makoka lake road (just before crossing the small concrete bridge) will lead you back to the starting point, a loop of about 7.5 miles. Baldwin lake road circles the entire lake adding a couple of very enjoyable miles.
Overall the trail was great, in the shade most of the first half. I love that you can circle back to the start point almost all the way on trail.

Milford Trail

Short but Scenic connection to downtown Milford

June, 2020 by laurievukonich

I have used this trail many times to get from Kensington Metropark to Downtown Milford by bike. It is very pretty and not as heavily traveled as the park itself. Watch the bumps as you reach the boardwalks, and use caution with the one road crossing over GM Road—drivers tend to speed. Downtown Milford has several restaurants for eating and there is a Dairy Queen open seasonally by the Milford Road entrance to Kensington. This is a handy trail for me to get downtown on days that car traffic is likely to be excessive or if there are road closures (4th of July parades, Milford Memories art fair, etc).
