Stony Creek Metropark Trail

Great trail

February, 2021 by nwexler1999

I have a recumbent trike and this is one of my favorite trails to ride on. The path is all paved and well maintained so I never have no worry about going off road. I even ride in and going fishing in the lake at the park.

Lansing River Trail

Beautiful and very well maintained (even in Winter)

February, 2021 by 7wbbk8ihpg

Have been walking those every weekend for the past month and must say that it is my favorite local trail. You will see a little bit of everything on this trail, which keeps it refreshing and new.

The Ram Trail links three Holt Public School buildings to “downtown” Holt along a very busy high seed road. There is monomial parking at the east trailhead and large school parking lots at the west trailhead. For the intended use it works.

Flint River Trail (MI)

Sunshine on the Flint River Trail

November, 2020 by madcow13

The trail north of Carpenter Rd is very nice and well maintained. It appears that this part of the trail is very popular as it goes through Stepping Stone Falls (which is very pretty). The trail south of Carpenter Rd is not very well maintained: broken pavement, lots of debris, many fallen limbs. All in all, had a great time. Beautiful 72 degree weather in November.

Kensington Metropark Trail

Beautiful and well maintained

November, 2020 by mdjjrossi

We rode this yesterday. It is just gorgeous and very well maintained. In regard to some of the recent reviews regarding crowds - although we saw a good number of people riding or walking, it was totally fine since we were there on a Thursday. Weekends are much busier. There are a lot of curves on the trail, so that's something to look out for if it's crowded and some are trying to pass when they shouldn't. Side note - on the south end of Kent Lake, there's a short connecter bike path that goes under I-96 to Island Lake. The Island Lake trails aren't nearly as well maintained and are very bumpy.

Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail

Owasso to Ionia - out and back

October, 2020 by tomsleeker

My wife and I rode this trail in September of 2020. I totally enjoyed it! Perfect for a Gravel, Cross, or Mountain Bike. Rideable on a road bike... though probably not comfortable. The surface is still a little soft in some areas, so anything with larger tires would be ideal. It's straight as an arrow, but plenty to see on either side. The best scenery I thought was between St. Johns and Ionia. The trail is paved through the towns... where there's opportunity to stop for water/snacks/food. We had lunch in Ionia at a cafe downtown. We parked where the trail crosses Smith Road just outside of Owasso. There's a paved parking lot behind Budget Tire and the EMS building.

Milford Trail

UPDATE, this trail is great!

October, 2020 by jwih5ppwqd

Just rode this trail on 10/22/20 and it is all paved, hardly any bumps now. The only thing to watch out for are some bumps near the wooden bridges and traffic over the few road crossings- traffic does not stop.

Black Creek Nature Trail

I've drove past this trail several times and never even noticed ot! So when I saw it by accident I had to check it out! Nice walking trail. No complaints. Glad I found it!
